Using rosemary, not only against diseases: Making an Extract

We can use rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) to fight disease.

To make the extract, we’re going to pour 24 fluid ounces / 700 milliliters of 50 percent alcohol over 7 ounces / 200 grams of dried, ground rosemary and let steep for two days. Then strain and add 1 tablespoon of liquid soap if available.

The extract can be used to make about 1.5 gallons / 7 liters of spray. It acts as a strong prevention against fungi and powdery mildew on plants and fruits alike. It also repels butterfly caterpillars, leaf beetle larvae, aphids and whiteflies.
