Formula EM-5 is a versatile tool in your garden and is typically home made. We realized that most gardeners needed Formula EM-5 when it was already too late for them to start brewing it all up and fermenting it. After we realized this we set out to create a product that would only include the very best ingredients and be shelf stable. Below we provide the recipe to make your own for free but have found that most people prefer to purchase our Pre-Made and Shelf stable version instead.

Ingredients in our  Formula EM-5:

Purified Water, Organic EM-1, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Organic Grape Alcohol, Organic Yucca Extract, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar,  Organic Peppermint Essential Oil. This is safe to spray on flowers when diluted and is best used throughout the growing season. 

As always, we are giving you the recipe to make your own spectacular homemade plant wash. The fermentation extracts properties out of plant materials and the alcohol and retains them in the liquid. The EM•1® in the recipe is the fermentation catalyst.  This is an all-natural concoction that can be made by anyone and is not harmful to humans or animals. It combines water, EM•1®, a distilled spirit, molasses, and vinegar. The most successful programs with BAS Plant Wash involve alternating its applications with Activated EM•1® and EMFPE. The essential oils that are the active ingredient in the BAS Plant Wash are exempt from EPA registration as a minimum risk pesticide.


The formula for one gallon of EM5 is as follows (1:1:1:1:20): 

  1. 3/4 C EM•1®
  2. 3/4 C Molasses
  3. 3/4 C Vinegar (white or apple cider)
  4. 3/4 C distilled alcohol (vodka, whiskey, tequila)
  5. Add some other plant material (fresh hot peppers or garlic...or fresh herbs that have known pesticide properties like mint leaves, lavender, eucalyptus, mella luca, neem, etc.)
  6. Fill the gallon container with warm water (110-120ºF)
  7. Seal and ferment until pH goes below 4.0

Spray EM5 alternately with EM•1® or EM•1® Fermented Plant Extract through a hose-end sprayer.

Often people will set up an informal program as follows (Diluting the AEM•1®, EM5, or EM FPE with 500 parts water):

Week One: Apply AEM•1®, 1 gallon for 1/2 acre property
Week Two: Apply EM5, 1 gallon for 1/2 acre property
Week Three: Apply EM FPE, 1 gallon for 1/2 acre property
Week Four: Apply AEM•1®, 1 gallon for 1/2 acre property


This pattern is repeated throughout the growing season.

Use 1 ounce per gallon for normal foliar spray use in container gardens.

Use up to 8 ounces per gallon for problems such as the growth of algae, odor-causing bacteria, and mold stains.  

Use as general house hold cleaner for any purpose.

Nice Clean smell...Completely Safe around Pets and People

I use this as a general cleaning tool for everything touched or around my Medical Cannabis.I insist on having clean medicine and I alternate between Em-1 &Em5 Every week until the 21 st day of flower. I have pets and wouldn’t use anything that could harm them or make them sick. I feel completely comfortable using the Em-5 in the same house as my Animals. I also have tons of Rove Beetles and I didn’t notice any die off. I use it for scissors and general cleaning of my 4x4 raised bed,tent walls, floors,fans,Dehumidifiers etc. I am a big fan of Versitility...Meaning that a product should have more than one or two uses other than just in the garden.If anyone has found other uses please chime in.
