Indian Homemade Cleaners & Beauty Products

My terrace garden plants are dying due to some insect attack. I do not want to put pesticides and eat some poison along with them. So I was researching on how to make one homemade insecticide. But the challenge is to get the same ingredient in India. I am now struck up on how to get liquid Castille Soap. Will do some more research and update you the developments. Meanwhile to keep you interested i am reposting the ingredients Rebeka had prescibed in her blog.

Home made insecticide

3 C Warm Water
6-8 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
1 TBS Cayenne Pepper (Kashmiri Chilli ?!?)
1/2 Medium Onion, quartered
1/2 tsp Liquid Castille Soap, fragrance free

Its turns out that Garlic and Pepper are negative (pranic) food according to Meditators. Hmnnn … Insects know it.


Easy Laundry Soap

  • What you’ll need to make your very own Easy Laundry Soap (this makes approx. 48 loads):
  • 1 Bar (14 oz) Fels-Naptha, Zote Soap or Ivory Soap
  • 2 C Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (make sure it says “Super Washing Soda”)
  • 2 C Borax

I will try to get source of buying all the ingredients and update this post soon.
