Dust Mites Death
No More Sneezing Allergies

by Jeanne Rose

Dust mites are one of the most common household allergens along with cockroach scat. Both are a major risk factor for asthma and respiratory ailments.
Dust mites can be 99% eliminated from your bedding by the simple addition of a long soak in Eucalyptus essential oil.  Washing alone will only get rid of 2.4% of the dust mites. The work was done at the University of Sydney in Australia with this solution.

The Formula
Soak wool blankets, sheets or bedding for one full hour in the following solution:

6 T* Eucalyptus oil (0.4% concentration)
1.5 T liquid laundry detergent
13 gallons of water.

Mix the Eucalyptus oil and the detergent together to make an emulsion, add it to the water and then add the bedding. Soak for 1 hour.

Then wash the bedding or blankets as normal in warm or cool water.

*1 U.S. tablespoon = 1/2 U.S. fl. oz. (14.8 ml)
