The Kalico Plant Care natural mist is great to use as part of a healthy houseplant regiment. This recipe has been passed down from generations of green thumbs, and is a baba own receipe. Amended with our Jungle Vibes Essential Oil blend, it not only helps rid your plant of pests, but helps clean the surface of the leaf.
Plants are notoriously adept at absorbing gases through pores on the surface of their leaves. It's this skill that facilitates photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert light energy and carbon dioxide into chemical energy to fuel growth. Indoor plants remove pollutants from the air by absorbing these gases through their leaves and roots. The microorganisms that live in the soil of potted plants also play an instrumental role in neutralizing VOCs and other pollutants.
So in turn, when we keep our plants happy and healthy, they keep the air we breathe fresh and clean as well! To use your Kalico Plant Care Mist, simply apply a small amount onto a clean, damp cloth and gently wipe the surface of each leaf. This is a great step to do when you first purchase your new plant babies, to ensure they are free of pests while removing dirty greenhouse residues. You can also mist the plant lightly on a bi-weekly basis to keep it happy.
