Sacred Soil Tonic can be used as both a soil drench and as a foliar feed. We recommend using 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per 16 ounces of water or 10ml tonic to one gallon water, mix and water into the soil or spray your whole plant. For heavy feeding plants we recommend doing up to 20ml per one gallon water.
Sacred Leaf Tonic is best used solely as a foliar spray once weekly for regular care and leaf cleaning or more frequently if dealing with an active pest infestation. Always shake the bottle first! We recommend using 1/4 teaspoon per 16 ounces of water or 10ml tonic to one gallon water, mixing well (or blending), and spraying down your entire plant. Be sure to spray the fronts and undersides of leaves, stems, petioles, etc to ensure every inch of your plant is able to drink in the plant medicines!
*We have found the more velvety leaved plants (Anthuriums, Philodendron Micans, etc) thrive on a slightly lower dosage of Sacred Leaf Tonic. 5ml tonic/ gal of water is the sweet spot to get them glowing. Evening application recommended, avoid times of intense light/heat. Spot test sensitive plants & wait 24-48hrs before applying to the entire plant(s). SHAKE BOTTLE WELL BEFORE USE! For extra strength use 15ml/ gal water.
NOTE: Plants that have a thick chalky white coating such as certain succulents, air plants, staghorn ferns, and banana plants have a protective layer called an epicuticular wax. This hydrophobic coating acts as a natural sunscreen for your plant, so avoid spraying the foliage. Instead give plants with this epicuticular wax soil drenches with Sacred Soil Tonic.
*Pure, cold pressed neem oil solidifies around 55 degrees Fahrenheit and below, so natural separation will occur. For this reason, we recommend running the Sacred Leaf Tonic bottle under warm water until it melts and shake well before using!
