Bed Bug

“Fighting Nature with Nature”
Essential Oil Protocol for Bed Bugs

Bed Bug RecipeBitesSprayDiffuse





Since the recent outbreak of bedbugs infestation, many remedies have been tried with little to no success in destroying the eggs. After World War II, the problem of bed bugs had virtually disappeared from America. Specifically, because the action was taken using DDT. But DDT was a deadly carcinogenic that destroyed the soil and everything else. It has been outlawed in the USA.

Essential Oil lovers prefer the Eco-friendly approach.

Research shows that tree oils work best against parasites and menacing insects. Gary Young touts the praises of Palo Santo oil as the first choice for insect repellent. This Ecuadoran tree develops a resin to protect against bug bites. Specifically, it is from the resin that Young Living distills the Palo Santo oil. Eucalyptus has been used throughout history for bed bugs. Eucalyptus Blue is the first anti-viral Eucalyptus Oil. Native American Indians relied on pine needles and Cedarwood chips in their mattresses to ward off ticks and fleas. So, let’s consider a natural approach to attack the bed bugs at home and on vacation.

Bed Bug Bites

Bed bug bites do not usually require treatment. If a secondary infection occurs (usually from scratching), apply Rose Ointment. Add an extra drop of Melrose in a dab of Thieves oil and apply Thieves oil around the infection. If open not directly into the sore. Take Thieves in a capsule, or use Inner Defense softgels. In these more severe cases, you may need to see your health practitioner.

Bedbug or Imposter?

Don’t assume your bites are bedbugs. Bites can be hard to identify, even for doctors. Rule out mosquitoes, fleas, mites, and biting gnats by visual inspection. Have you clarified that you do not have Morgellons? Be sure to rule out Morgellons Disease.

It’s best to collect and identify bedbugs to confirm bites. Look for the bugs or their bloodstains. Especially look closely along the seams of mattresses. Further, look for dark spots of insect waste where bedbugs might crawl into hiding places on furniture, walls, and floors. Wash clothing and bedding in hot water and then again in hot water that will not burn a finger and added 1 cap full of Thieves Cleaner and 6 drops of Purification Oil Blend.

Bite Back Against Bedbugs

Get rid of infested mattresses and box springs or cover them with a plastic mattress bag to trap the bugs. Wash clothes and bedding in hot water, and dry on high heat.
