Natural Bed Bug Treatment


from Janet McBride


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.

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.

Athletes Foot natural remedy

Tinea pedis or athletes foot is a fungal infection of the skin that infects the feet. This fungus loves warm moist environment to which many feet are subject. A good way to start with the healing process is to keep the feet dry and stay out of tight shoes.

tea-tree-essential-oilEssential oils are a great way to help you get rid of the infection and here is how:
The single oils used for this treatment are tea tree & lavender or tea tree, peppermint & mountain savory. Existing Young Living Blends : Melrose, Thieves, Purification, ClaraDerm

Athlete’s Foot Natural Remedy:
First Athletes foot blend :
8 drops of teat tree 2 drops of lavender
Second Athletes foot blend : 8 drops of tea tree 4 drops of peppermint 2 drops of mountain savory

You can either dilute the blends with some vegetable oil (50/50) or use them directly onto the feet.
Apply 5 to 7 drops of your blend onto your toes and around your toe nails making sure you cover all areas. Repeat this daily until the the infection has completely cleared. This is a very efficient way of getting rid of Athletes Foot without having to use heavy chemical products.

Please make sure you use only Therapeutic grade essential oils. I recommend using only Young Living essential oils and blends. Click here to find out how to get your own oils

December’s Recipe Using Clove and More!

Young Living RecipeOh, Christmas tree, oh, Christmas tree…how lovely are thy seasonal fruits! Mixed with fresh baby greens, this makes a festive holiday salad with colors that glimmer like twinkling lights. I like to introduce this dish by separating the ingredients for my children to design their own edible Christmas trees. I encourage them to decorate any way they choose and then we take pictures of their artwork. They are more excited to eat their creations when they have had their hand in the creative play—and I am thrilled to see them eating healthfully!

Clove, cinnamon, tangerine, and orange YLTG essential oils electrify the taste buds for a delicious, tangy, sweet, and spicy start to any holiday celebration. As we sprinkle drops of orange oil on the salad (see recipe instructions), I like to share with my children the story of how in times of hardship, seasonal fruits and nuts were given as presents instead of toys. The drops of oil nestled within the fresh greens represent oranges as presents under the Christmas tree. The surprise is revealed when tasting the hint of oil throughout each bite. Brighten this time of the year with health and vitality from the gifts found in nature.

Until next post: January’s Chipotle Party Pepper Poppers

Happy Eating!

Chef Mandy

Clove Cinnamon Seeds

1 c. soaked and dried pumpkin seeds

1 c. soaked and dried sunflower seeds

3/4 c. maple syrup or maple sugar

¼ c. Nama Shoyu or wheat-free Tamari

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 drops YLTG clove oil

1 drop YLTG cinnamon oil

This component should be made at least two days ahead of time. Combine ingredients and pour onto solid dehydrator sheets in one layer. Dehydrate 24 hours @ 105° Fahrenheit. Flip the gooey mixture onto mesh sheets. Continue drying until crisp, approximately 24 hours. Store in the freezer until ready to use.

Tangerine Pomegranate Vinaigrette

1/3 c. raw honey or maple sugar

1/4 c. pomegranate juice

1/4 c. balsamic vinegar

1 c. grapeseed oil

1 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes

1 Tbsp. dried onion flakes

1/4 tsp. ground mustard powder

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt

1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper

3 Tbsp. poppy seeds

4 drops YLTG tangerine oil

Half one pomegranate and juice both halves in a citrus juicer, as if juicing an orange. Reserve 1/4 cup extracted juice for the dressing. Blend first three ingredients in a Vita Mix blender. On slow speed, add grapeseed oil until emulsified. Pulse chop the remaining ingredients. (Before adding the tangerine oil, I like to taste the dressing first. Then, I add the oil drops to taste the difference. I truly appreciate how delightful the oil flavors the recipe!)

Orange Holiday Greens

1 lb. mixed baby greens

4 Fuyu persimmons, julienne

4 red pears, julienne

2 baby cucumbers, sliced

Seeds from 1 pomegranate

4 drops YLTG orange oil, per serving

1 starfruit, sliced (optional to top the tree)

Toss baby greens with vinaigrette. Mound salad greens in the center of each plate. Drop 4 drops orange oil throughout each mound of greens. Arrange ingredients around plate for everyone to decorate their own Christmas tree. Top the mound with a slice of starfruit (optional).
