• Add the vegetable paste to half a liter of warm water mixing the ingredients together Thoroughly.
• Pour the solution into a plastic or glass container and allow it to sit for 24 hours. If possible, keep it in a sunny location. If not, at least keep the mixture in a warm spot.

Remedy 3 Using neem
