Is crop safe for consumption after spraying with pest oil?

I sprayed my herb garden with pest oil after noticing white fly. Are herbs safe for consumption?

Answer: Hi Effie,

You will need to wait 1 day now before eating the herbs you have sprayed. If you would like to use a product with no withholding period, we would suggest a product called Nature’s Way Insect & Mite Killer, Natrasoap. You will find this product at your local nursery or hardware store.
