Bed Bug Home Remedies

The bed bug infestation in our bedrooms is spiraling out of control! They seem to thrive everywhere, even after I have changed the sheets several times. What are quick and effective bed bug home remedies I can use to deal with this infestation once and for all?

Bed bug home remedies are surprisingly very available and easy to follow, if you know what to do. Here are some quick tips to finally get rid of those nasty bugs out of your bedrooms:




1. Sunlight and heat: Do it the natural way – expose your beddings, bed sheets, and foams out in the extreme heat of the sun. The heat will instantly kill the infesting bed bugs. If you live in a colder climate, wash and dry your linens at high temperatures – bed bugs die in temperatures over 113 degrees.

2. Lavender: Bed bugs cannot stand the smell of lavender. Spray this all over your bed, sheets, wardrobes, and closets. For longer lasting effects, hang lavender sachets in areas where bed bugs tend to flourish.

3. Custom Herbal Spray: Get 10 drops from each of the following: lavender, rosemary essential oil, and eucalyptus. Mix them carefully, and spray all over the infested areas using a spray bottle. Wear gloves while concocting and applying this herbal spray.

4. Petroleum Jelly: Lather petroleum jelly all over the legs of your chairs, bedside tables, and the legs of your beds. This prevents the bugs from climbing up and worsening an already infested area.

5. Mint Leaves: The soothing smell of mint leaves is surprisingly disgusting to bed bugs – they cannot stand it. To repell them, spread some mint leaves all over the infested areas.

6. Cayenne Pepper: Purchase cayenne pepper from your local grocery store. Just like with the mint, spread them all over the infested area and even those places that the bed bugs might be passing over to get to your bedroom. This method naturally repels bed bugs.

7. Scented Sheets: There’s nothing like soothing scents to instantly repel bed bugs. Cover your bed, pillows, and mattresses with scented sheets to keep bed bugs away.

8. Duct Tape: Battle bed bugs head-on by pressing duct tape on the areas they are infesting. Chances are you will be able to lift and eliminate most of them upon exposure and contact with the tape.

9. Use hot laundry water everytime: Do an overhaul and boil everything in hot water for at least 15 minutes. This includes everything that’s made of fabric, the carpet, luggage bags, and rugs.

10. Vacuum: Vacuum your pillows, sheets, mattresses, and carpets repeatedly before you put in new, scented ones. Make sure that as you vacuum, you linger on areas for several seconds rather than just hover the vacuum over one area for just one second.

11. Diatomaceous Earth: Spread this all-natural product around areas where bed bugs tend to be located.

12. Steam cleaner: Purchase a high-powered one and go through all the areas, cracks, and corners where they tend to thrive. Spray hot steam on one area at a time for three to five seconds.

Home Remedies for Hand Cramps



Anywhere you have muscles can become plagued with the pain and discomfort of a cramp – even your hands. While writing is one of the most common causes of this condition, there are many other reasons for the aches. Thankfully, home remedies for hand cramps can help speed up recovery time and ease the severity of symptoms.

Hand cramps are a result of conditions that affect the muscles and nerves in your hands. They can arise when you’ve suffered trauma or injury to a nerve in the hand. They can emerge if you are breathing too fast (as in the case of hyperventilation), where carbon dioxide levels in the blood dip too low. Other causes of hand cramps include overuse, dehydration (when levels of calcium, magnesium, and fluids are low in the body), anxiety, certain medications, pregnancy, prolonged heavy exercise, and heat exhaustion.

However, the most common cause of hand cramps is referred to as ‘writer’s cramp’ and you don’t have to be a writer to experience the symptoms. Painters, drivers, carpenters, knitters, musicians and others who work with their hands are at risk. Holding or using your hand in a certain way for a length of time (and without breaks) can lead to cramping.

Luckily, hand cramps are temporary and brief – even though they can become severe and painful. Some people have reported a tingling or burning sensation during a cramp. For some, the issue is chronic, especially when battling a medical condition, such as diabetes, thyroid disorders and kidney disease [1]. Typical symptoms include joint pain, numbness, stiffness, and swelling of hand or joints. It usually also becomes difficult to move the hand, fingers, and/or wrist.

If the late nights of writing or clicking a mouse have caught up to you, the muscle in your hands may rebel in protest. To soothe your symptoms, consider the following home remedies for hand cramps:

Muscle cramps respond to chamomile tea because it contains glycine – an amino acid known to relax the muscles. It is suggested to drink five cups of the tea on a daily basis for two weeks to enjoy relief from muscle cramps.

To avoid cramping, sip green tea with cloves or ginger on a regular basis. The herbs contain analgesic properties that can help numb any discomfort in the hands.

A hot shower will not only relax your entire body, but will also treat cramped hand muscles. Direct your hand towards the stream of water to enjoy a penetrating massage effect.

Soak in a warm bath to relax cramped hand muscles.

Press a cramped hand on a wall with your fingers facing down to stretch out the flexor muscles associated with the fingers.

When tight knots develop in your hands, slowly and gently rub the affected region in the natural direction of the muscles. A massage will improve blood circulation, which helps relax contracted muscles.

Gentle stretching of the fingers, such as flexing your digits, can ease out a hand cramp.

If you start to feel the development of a hand cramp approaching, prevent a full-fledge attack by shaking your hands and fingers to encourage the flow of blood and increased circulation.

If you suffer frequent hand cramps, it is suggested to make sure you’re getting the right minerals into your system. Not having enough calcium and potassium in your diet can cause cramping.

Magnesium helps relax contracted muscles in your hands.

Run a washcloth under warm water and apply to a cramped hand. The warmth of the water will promote relaxation of the muscles, which eliminates the cramp.

Any rubbery or squishy toy can help alleviate the discomfort of a hand cramp. These items are similar to the gadgets and products specifically created to encourage the muscles to tense and release, which helps resolve a cramp.

Home Remedies for Bedsores


People who are confined to a bed or wheelchair and cannot move without the help of others may experience weakened skin because of insufficient blood flow. Decreased circulation can lead to sores on the skin. To prevent the condition and encourage healing, home remedies for bedsores can alleviate some of the damage when in the early stages.

Also known as pressure sores or pressure ulcers, bedsores indicate an injury to the skin that affects underlying tissues when too much pressure is applied to a part of the body. Bony areas are more vulnerable to developing bedsores, such as the hips, heels and buttocks. People living in a nursing home or staying in the hospital for long periods of time are at the highest risk for experiencing bedsores.

There are four stages that a bed sore undergoes as it increased in severity. Only patients with Stage I or II can benefit from home remedies – any other symptoms requires the assistance of a medical professional.

Reddened (or discolored) skin typically develops. The site may become painful, firmness, or cooler than surrounding skin. Stage II creates an open wound, where the outer layer of the skin shows signs of damage. A pressure ulcer may develop – a pinkish-red shade. Sometimes, a patient may experience a fluid-filled blister that ruptures.

In Stage III, the ulcer has become a deep wound. Skin is lost – usually exposing underlying fat and some yellowish dead tissue. The ulcer now resembles a crater and may have spread to affect surrounding healthy skin. A patient with a stage IV bed sore has lost a lot of tissue. Muscle, bone and tendons can become exposed, along with darkened, dead tissue. Symptoms of bedsores usually appear on the tailbone, shoulder blades, spine, hips, heels, skin behind the knees, and the backs of arms and legs [1].

When bedsores go unnoticed and left untreated, the threat of infection can take a life-threatening turn for the worst. A speedy response can cut down on the amount of suffering and long-term damage. The following home remedies for bedsores can help treat early symptoms:

Promote healing of bedsores and prevent new ones from forming by changing positions while lying in the bed. When you move, skin pressure is released and circulation starts to increase. A patient in a wheelchair should be repositioned every 15 minutes, while bedridden patients should move at least every two hours.

To decrease friction when moving a patient with bedsores, use baby powder.
Pillows:
Reduce pressure to the skin by using pillows for support.

Bedsores need to be regularly cleaned to promote healing. Removal of any dead skin is also important. Antiseptics can damage the skin and slow down the healing process, which makes a warm saline solution (salt water) a suitable choice. You can create a cleansing solution for bedsores by mixing two cups of water and two to three tablespoons of table salt. Allow the salt to dissolve in the water before transferring to a squeeze bottle. Apply the salt-water solution over bedsores – making sure to place a clean towel under the affected skin to catch excess water.

This miracle substance has played a role in accelerated skin healing and wound care for centuries. Honey also acts as a skin moisturizer. The antiseptic qualities help prevent and treat infections. Add honey to a gauze bandage or pad, and place on a bedsore. Change the honey dressing at least once every 24 hours. Improved results are typically seen within one week and 10 days.

To prevent infection, you must keep open wounds clean. Gently wash a stage I bedsore with mild soap and water.

It is extremely important to keep the skin dry of bedridden or wheelchair bound people. When moisture becomes trapped under pressure, the tissue starts to deteriorate and open sores can develop.

Your body needs nutrients and vitamins to fight the formation of bedsores and to encourage healing. Certain vitamins are more beneficial, such as vitamin C and zinc, which speeds up the healing process of wounds.

When added to iodine, milk of magnesia has been known to provide a soothing remedy for bedsores. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and set aside for 30 minutes. Next, apply the remedy to bedsores several times per day (or as needed). After a few days, patients have reported signs of healing. Some people have applied Milk of Magnesia directly onto their bedsores to see results. Another remedy using Phillips Milk of Magnesia involves combining one teaspoon with one teaspoon of sugar to create a paste. Spread the mixture on bedsores to encourage a scab to grow over the open wound.

Combine two tablespoons of honey and one tablespoon of rhubarb (or beet) juice to create a healing paste that is applied to bedsores. If the mixture is too runny, add a bit of flour as a natural thickening agent. Cover the wound with a bandage and change daily.

To reduce the pressure of bedsore-affected skin, you may need to sleep on an air mattress to get a comfortable rest. The ‘cushion of ‘air’ that this type of mattress offers is less stressful than a mattress with springs.

Before applying aloe vera gel to a bedsore, clean the area and apply once or twice per day. The aloe will bring soothing relief, as well as encourage a speedy recovery.

The disinfectant power of Lysol has been used by caretakers of bedridden patients to prevent and heal bedsores. Place Lysol in a spray bottle and apply over the part of the body where a bedsore has developed. The Lysol will help infected bedsores to heal by killing germs.

A humidifier prevents the skin dryness that can lead to irritation associated with bedsores. Skin with a decent level of moisture is more resistant to bedsores and other infections.

Apply vitamin E oil over the body to moisturize skin and make it more resistant to the dryness that can lead to bedsores.

If you are bedridden or confined to a wheelchair, eating a diet full of essential vitamins can become a lifesaver. It is important to get plenty of vitamins A, B, C, D and E, which can prevent and heal bedsores.

Some people have sprinkled turmeric powder on affected skin to disinfect a pressure sore.

When you drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water, you will keep the skin soft, as well as promote the removal of dead tissue.

Bad habits can make bedsores worse. Smoking causes dry skin and reduced blood supply to the skin. The healing process also slows down when you smoke tobacco products. Drinking caffeinated drinks, such as tea and coffee, should also decrease.

A mixture of honey and sugar can be applied to bedsores to encourage healing. Apply directly to your wounds.

To keep bedsores moist and encourage faster healing, apply petroleum jelly. Cover with gauze bandages and secure with a piece of tape. Reapply the petroleum jelly at least two more times to keep the wound covered throughout the day.

A daily bowel movement can prevent bedsores from getting worse. Increasing your intake of fiber can help – consider fruits, vegetables and high-fiber cereals.

In the very early stages of bedsores, you can massage the area to promote better circulation to pressure points.

A daily sponge bath using a soap containing vitamin E is beneficial for a patient with bedsores.

Wearing clothing made out of cotton offers a breathable material that makes skin with bedsores more comfortable.
