“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.
To go after nesting eggs, combine Cornstarch or Baking Soda in Cotton Tea bags (T-Sac – Size 2) with Palo Santo, Eucalyptus Blue and Cedarwood. Place bags on underside of mattress.

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.
