Natural Bed Bug Spray

I am here in sunny Florida and I am enjoying my time! However prior to getting here I was in panic mode over the bed bug issue going on in several states, one including my own, NY.

I came a cross a recipe I found online and decided to make it and share it with you. I don't remember where I found it from however I will look again for it and give credit to the author.

All you need is 2 8 oz blue or amber glass spray bottles or you can do 4 4oz I also suggest using distilled or spring water vs. tap water.

Natural Bed Bug Spray
1 cup of distilled or spring water
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
5 drops of Clove Essential Oil

Mix well and before each use shake the spray bottle.

This recipe smells divine for you bad bad for the bed bugs!!



  1. Great tip!! I'm also freaked out about these nasty little buggers. I've decided that I'll take all defensive steps to keep bed bugs at bay. I purchased a bed bug mattress and pillow protector. I'll add this recipe to my front line. Thx again for the post.

  2. Thanks for the comment rabryson. I too am freaked out over the BB issue! GROSS!! LOL I also have a recipe for a herb pouch that you can make and keep it in your bag. I actually made some and put it in my luggage and my son's luggage when we went to Florida.
