In this post, I will walk through each step in creating my own recipe — from sourcing the materials to putting it all together. The smell of this bed bug essential oil recipe is natural and pure, and it goes hand-in-hand with the citrus aroma you’ll experience. Before getting into the nitty-gritty of the recipe, you should know that using essential oils to keep your home safe from bugs is a two-step process. In this essential oil recipe post, I’m going to share with you how to make a bed bug essential oil blend. It doesn’t have to be complex, but after doing some research into the different oils that could help with bed bugs, I created an all-natural and effective essential oil mixture. No longer do you have to be bothered by your itchy, irritating bug bites; with this homemade all-natural Bed Bug Essential Oil Recipe you will feel immediate relief from the itching and inflammation.

Bed Bug Essential Oil Recipe

2 cups water

2 cups of water

Distilled or bottled water is best if you have it. Tap water is okay, but it can leave residue behind that makes the mixture not as effective.

10 drops tea tree oil (also known as melaleuca)

  • Tea tree oil is a natural insecticide that can help you get rid of bed bugs.
  • It’s also effective against several kinds of pests, including mosquitoes and ants.
  • Tea tree oil is a disinfectant, meaning it can kill germs on your skin and in your body by destroying their cell membranes. This makes it useful for treating acne, athlete’s foot (a fungal infection), warts and cold sores.

10 drops lavender oil

Make a mixture of lavender oil and water, using 10 drops of the oil in 1 tablespoon of the water. Add this mixture to your bathwater and soak for 20 minutes before bedtime. This will help you relax, which can help prevent bed bugs from biting or feeding on you while you’re asleep.

Lavender is also a natural insect repellent, so by mixing it with your bathwater you may be able to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes and other insects too! If this mixture doesn’t work for you, experiment with other essential oils that have similar properties: tea tree oil (anti-viral), peppermint oil (natural analgesic), thyme oil (antiseptic), eucalyptus globulus (breathing aid).

10 drops eucalyptus globulus (or lemon eucalyptus oil)

Eucalyptus Globulus (or lemon eucalyptus oil) is a natural insect repellent. It has anti-microbial properties, which can help relieve pain and it’s useful for treating colds, coughs and flu symptoms.

It is also a natural decongestant and can be used in vapor rubs that soothe sore throats. It’s been used to reduce inflammation of the throat due to colds or allergies as well as earaches caused by infections or injury.

10 drops clove oil

10 drops clove oil

Clove oil is a natural insect repellent. It has been used as an essential oil for years and has been shown to repel bedbugs. Clove oil can be used in combination with other essential oils or on its own to keep bed bugs at bay. If you are going camping or traveling and are worried about bringing home unwanted guests, this is one of the best things you can do to prevent them from coming back home with you!

essential oils can help you keep bed bugs at bay

Essential oils can help you keep bed bugs at bay.

When it comes to natural repellents, essential oils are often the first choice for many people. Their effectiveness as a bed bug repellent is limited compared to pesticides and other chemical methods, but they still have an important role in any pest control plan. They reduce the number of mosquitoes and other insects that carry disease-causing pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. In addition to their use as a mosquito repellent and an insecticide against the mosquito population, these oils also help keep ants away from your home by eliminating their food source (pests).
