Make your own dust mite repellent to spray on your bed. Dust mites are repulsed by the smell of Clove, Eucalyptus, Lavendar, Peppermint, and Rosemary. Make your own aromatic spray by adding a few drops of one (or more) of those essential oils in a water-filled spray bottle. Lightly mist your bed and allow it to air dry. (New scents to try: I also just read that a mixture of Basil and Lemongrass will not only repel dust mites, but also fleas and lice!) by tanisha
