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

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

Essential Oil lovers prefer the Eco-friendly approach, and 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 infestation, and it is from that resin that Young Living distills the Palo Santo oil . Eucalyptus has been used historically for bed bugs, and 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 logical 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 adding an extra drop of Melrose in a dab or Thieves oil and apply Thieves oil around the infection if open not direct 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 conducting a 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 themselves or their bloodstains, especially 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 hot water that will not burn finger and added 1 cap full Thieves Cleaner and 6 drops of purification. Then dry on hot.

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. Clean furniture and vacuum cracks in wood floors and doors where bugs may hide. Shake out suitcases. Use your thieves spray and thieves cleaner the cracks of floors or bed frames.
