Natural Bed Bug Treatment

SLEEP TIGHT—DON’T LET THE BED BUGS BITE!”

from Janet McBride

WARNING:  ONLY CERTIFIED THERAPEUTIC GRADE “A” ESSENTIAL OILS WILL HAVE ANY IMPACT ON BED BUGS. YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS ARE THE ONLY GRADE “A” OILS AVAILABLE IN THE AMERICAN MARKETPLACE.

Since the recent outbreak of bed bug infestation, many remedies have been tried with little to no success of destroying the eggs.  After World 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.  Now, the bed bugs are escalating because of global travel; the increase of homeless and underground communities; the popularity of “Flea” markets and 2nd-hand merchandise; and worst of all, the bed bugs have become Super Bugs in that they have mutated from the DDT!

Natural Bed Bug Treatment:
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:

Natural Bed Bug Treatment Spray
10 drops of Palo Santo
6 drops of Eucalyptus Blue
5 drops of Cedarwood
Combine with 4 oz. Distilled Water in a dark glass Spritzer bottle.

Washing Bed Linens: Thieves Cleaner and Purification Oil Blend

Bug Bites:  Lavender and Purification Oils

Diffuse: Purification, Palo Santo, Eucalyptus Blue

Spray on Bed Between Linen Changes:  Thieves Spray

Palo Santo Oil: Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) comes from the same botanical family (Burseraceae) as frankincense, although it is found in South America rather than the Middle East. Like frankincense, Palo Santo is known as a spiritual oil, traditionally used by the Incas to purify and cleanse the spirit from negative energies. Even its Spanish name reflects how highly this oil is regarded: Palo Santo means “holy wood” or “sacred wood.” The resin forms only after the tree is down for 5 years, and this resin from which the oil is extracted, protects the tree from various parasites.

Eucalyptus Blue Oil: Eucalyptus Blue has a fresh, invigorating aroma that supports normal breathing and soothes tense muscles. This essential oil is grown and harvested in Ecuador.  This is the first form of Eucalyptus that is also anti-viral.  This essential oil contains high levels of the powerful constituents of eucalyptol and alpha-pinene, and follows in the same tradition as a repellant to insects.

Cedarwood Oil: Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage, and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.* Cedarwood has an approximate ORAC of 1,689,996 (TE/L) and is the highest form of the cedarwood chips used traditionally to refresh bedding.

Diffuser:  Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils should only be diffused through quality cold-air-diffusers.

Purification® Oil Blend: Purification® is a powerful blend of Therapeutic Grade A Melaleucas (Tea Tree oil);

Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Lavandin and Myrtle essential oils. Purification® can be used directly on the skin to cleanse and soothe insect bites, cuts, and scrapes. When diffused, it helps to purify and cleanse the air from environmental impurities including cigarette smoke and other disagreeable odors.

Thieves Cleaner: Experience the wonder of Thieves® Household Cleaner, as tough stains and problem areas in your home become simple and easy to clean without using harsh or abrasive chemicals.  Thieves Essential Oil is legendary as was proven at Weber State University to exhibit a kill rate of 99.96% against all airborne bacteria including MRSA, Staph, Strep, e-Coli and Toxic Black Mold.  While bacteria can be dangerous, some industrial cleaners on the market pose an even larger threat to your health. Thieves Household Cleaner is a safe all-purpose concentrate that can be used in every room in your home, without the harsh chemicals. Dilution ratios are listed on the label for your convenience.

Peppermint Essential Oil

If I had to choose just two Essential Oils to carry with me at all times I would without a doubt pick Lavender and Peppermint essential oil.

Peppermint is your best friend when it comes to helping you cope with indigestion, stomach ache, nausea, headache,mosquitoes and much much more!

If ever you are suffering from any digestion related pains or discomfort applying one or two drops into your palm and massaging your stomach will bring relief within minutes. If you need a little extra help especially for nausea put one drop into a small glass of water and drink it, this will produce a great cooling effect in your stomach and you will feel much lighter.

To counter a sudden headache I suggest drinking a large glass of pure water then putting one drop of Peppermint Essential Oil in your palms, rubbing them together then cupping your mouth and nose and inhaling deeply through your nose, exhaling through your mouth. This is a strong oil and the fumes might burn your eyes a little, just make sure to not rub your eyes with your oily fingers!

On a hot summer day you can easily cool off or stay cool by applying a drop or less of peppermint essential oil behind your ears, on your chest and the back of your neck, the cooling effect will be immediate.

Adding  a drop of Peppermint Essential Oil to your favorite Natural Lemonade is also a great way to feel refreshed and invigorated on a warm day.

With peppermint essential oil you can also:

  • Relieve pain to bumps & bruises by applying Peppermint essential oil immediately to the injured area.
  • Reduce fever by rubbing a few drops of Peppermint oil on the bottoms of the feet.
  • Ease nausea, morning sickness or motion sickness by massaging several drops of Peppermint oil on the abdomen and soles of the feet.
  • Relieve a headache by rubbing a drop of Peppermint oil on the temples, forehead, and back of the neck. Caution: keep peppermint oil away from the eyes and never, ever put essential oil in your eyes!
  • Improve alertness and concentration by placing one drop of Peppermint oil on the tongue and rub another drop under the nose. Keep a bottle in your car for long drives; in your desk drawer at work for that mid-afternoon slump!
  • Enhance concentration and improve recall by diffusing Peppermint oil in the room while studying.
  • Relieve nasal and sinus congestion by placing a drop of Peppermint oil on the tongue and inhaling into the nose.
  • Flavor food with peppermint oil! See great naturally-sweetened Peppermint Brownie recipe below!
  • Kill aphids on houseplants by adding 4-5 drops of Peppermint oil to 4 ounces of water in a spray bottle. Shake well and spray the plants.
  • Curb the appetite and lessen the impulse to overeat by inhaling peppermint oil.

For more great ideas I suggest typing ‘Peppermint’ on our testimonials page, try it by clicking here

A word to the wise : Peppermint is very very strong, this is an oil where the rule ‘Less is More’ really applies! When using peppermint oil make sure you never use more than 2 drops. If ever the cooling effect is too strong for you dilute the essential oil with vegetable oil, NEVER USE WATER as this will only spread the oil and not dilute it.

Lavender Lemonade Recipe

LAVENDER LEMONADE RECIPE
This is a drink that has been served at the Farm in Mona, Utah during our Convention Farm Day Tour, and
gets rave reviews.

7 lemons, peeled & juiced
2 limes, peeled & juiced
14 cups water
1-1/2 cups Blue Agave
1 drop lavender essential oil

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Add more water or Blue Agave, depending on the size and tartness of the fruit.
For most of us, this would be a very large amount; you can cut it in half, while still adding 1 drop of the oil.  VERY refreshing!

Lavender is so versatile…check my blog for two more testimonials from my son (and his cat): www.darbysoilsinfo.com

A different approach to wireless for the essential oil lover

Is this article about wireless providers? You bet ya! Don’t go anywhere let me share a little secret with you that I think you will appreciate.

As an lover of Essential Oils and especially Young Living Essential Oils, I can tell you a few things about yourself. First you like quality, there are many oil choices out there and many are less expensive but you recognize quality when you see (or smell) it and that is why you love YL. Second, you like to be in control to some degree, you don’t like blindly trusting what some professionals might say and want to take matters into your own hands when it comes to your health and your household.

Well let me introduce you to the YL of wireless providers: Ting.
With Ting you only pay for what you use, so if you are a big texter but don’t talk a lot or if you talk but don’t use much data, well why pay the big unlimitted price when you could just pay for exactly what you actually use? Makes perfect sense right?
Another great idea Ting had was to not lock you into any type of contract, you pay for what you use and that is all, want to go somewhere else, go for it, they won’t charge you a dime to leave.

Ting operates on the Sprint network, so if you are already with Sprint you can switch over today. If you are with another carrier they have some really great deals to help you switch like paying up to $75 of your early termination fees and more.

So if you like quality, control and in this case saving a large amount of money, switch over to Ting today. My bill for 2 phones is about $28/month – oh yes you can add as many phones as you want on your account for an extra $6 per month – no limits!

Lemon Essential Oil – Testimonial

My husband and son were working on the car yesterday and came in with super
glue all over their fingers. In their haste to deal with getting it off
their fingers, they set the sticky tube on the glass top to my stove. An
hour or so later, they discovered the tube stuck to the stove top! Thank
heavens for lemon oil! I put it on and let it set for about 5-10 minutes
straight (no dilution). I then took a spatula and scraped the super glue
right off without damaging my stove cook top!

Lemon Oil to the rescue!

10 Essential Oils everyone should have

Article By Darby Line LMT, CCA.

Based on 10 years of using essential oils and the advice of experienced oilers, here’s my list of “must-have oils” that every home should have. Remember, of course, these are therapeutic grade essential oils–not “recreational fragrances” which make up the majority of fragrant oils on the market. There is a HUGE difference! For therapeutic results, always always always use therapeutic grade oils! My choice is Young Living Essential Oils–some of the best on the planet!

VALOR. Young Living’s beautiful, multi-purpose blend is a fantastic first oil to apply immediately to bumps and bruises. Also, apply daily to the soles of the feet or wrists to help balance your energy and ground you.

PANAWAY: Young Living’s pain relief blend that has immediate results for many things (like a heavy can dropped on a toe!).

CYPRESS. A single oil distilled from the branches of cypress trees. Can help stop bleeding when applied on exposed skin away from the bleed–NOT directly on the cut (example: for nosebleeds, apply to inside of upper arm).

PURIFICATION: an outstanding blend for insect stings and bites, and for scrapes; also repels insects. It purifies the air when diffused.

THIEVES: This powerful antimicrobial blend of oils is available in several forms including a handy purse-size spray (great for purifying an area like a toilet seat), hand purifier (so much healthier than the others out on the market!), and of course, the oil itself. Apply to the bottoms of your feet for a boost to your immune system.

LEMON: This antiseptic oil can help bring a fever down with repeated doses on the spine or inside the forearms. It’s a gentle oil, safe for children. 2-4 drops would be plenty for an infant. To help a sluggish digestive system, add 5-6 drops to a glass of water and drink it down.

LAVENDER. A favorite with many people, lavender is calming to the nervous system. It is excellent for minor burns and sunburn–my first choice for either! You can mix 20 drops of lavender in 4 ounces of aloe vera juice and use as a spray on sunburn.

PEPPERMINT. “Cools the body, stimulates the brain, soothes digestion.” It can help bring down a fever, relieve bloating and gas, and keep you alert. It relieves headaches, clears sinuses, helps with smoking cessation, and has been clinically shown to help with IBS. And, a few drops in water it can also decrease appetite.

FRANKINCENSE. A great boost for the immune system, this ancient oil elevates mood and helps with depression, and supports “the connection between heaven and earth.”

PEACE & CALMING. To help with sleep; to relieve stress; to calm hyper kids and animals; any situation where peace or calming is needed–this oil is the best!

Many thanks to Dr. Peter Minkey, whose presentation at Young Living’s 2010 Convention inspired these comments and provided invaluable information on the topic of “The Family First Aid Kit” of essential oils.

Get your own oils, brighten up your life.

Lemon will get you out of sticky situations

One of the most underrated Essential Oils has got to be Lemon. It’s fragrance immediately brings a sensation of freshness and cleanliness wherever it is used. But not many know just how versatile this oil is. While I would place Lavender essential oil in the “self-care” versatile oils, Lemon would have to be categorized in the “cleaning” versatile oils.

There are other posts here about the many uses of Lemon Essential Oil but today I want to focus on one that we have all encountered: Sticky stuff!
Yes whether it be to remove sticky tape, a label, glue, engine grease or any other sticky stains, lemon essential oil is what you need! Just a few drops in your hands or directly on the surface you are trying to clean and in just a few wipes the sticky stuff is gone!

I would not try this on a porous surface but glass is perfect and most counter tops can handle it. If you have a doubt just rub a little lemon essential oil on a non visible part of the surface first to test it out.

I use this to remove those paper labels from glass bottles or glue from hands. Lemon is one of the most inexpensive oils, enjoy it!!
