Alternative Treatment for Bed Bugs
Essential Oil Treatment
In a spray bottle mix the following ingredients:
Water, 1/3 cup (enough for a 100 ml bottle)
Lavender essential oil, 20 drops
Eucalyptus essential oil, 20 drops
Rosemary essential oil, 30 drops
Lemongrass essential oil, 20 drops
Shake the bottle well before spraying.
You can use a steamer with the essential oils in it to steam your mattress. Bed bugs cannot survive extreme heat.
When I travel I take a small spray bottle filled with these oils and spray the bedding before I go to sleep. Lavender is a wonderful relaxant and also kills dust mites.
