Add to a small jar with warm water, shake until it looks like milk, then add to pump sprayer with 1 gallon water. Goodbye mites. And aphids. And flea beetles, whiteflies and caterpillars. Many insects that eat vegetation. I like to make garlic extract and include that occasionally if I notice any slug damage.
This is the first time I've ever heard of karanja oil. I had to look that one up. I'm just curious with your neem plus this plus the soap, does your sprayer and get a residual residue that won't come out? That was one of the problems I had with the neem was that not all of it would clean out of the pump sprayer, and then I had a brown tank!
