Your February bedroom series continues! Let's get in bed for this one.

The mattress is a beautiful household item but it needs some love once in a while. Tell me, have you ever cleaned your mattress?

Sounds like a big job, but I've tried a few things and have found a way to simplify it. Here are my best mattress tips for you:⠀

1. Set a calendar alert to rotate your mattress every 6 months and flip your mattress (if possible) every 1 year. If you live in Calgary, I recommend looking into @blacksheepmattress for their handmade, natural and flip-able mattresses! It nearly doubles the life expectancy of your mattress. I'm SO happy with my purchase from them. ⠀

2. After maneuvering carefully (don't hurt yourself!) mix up a small jar of 1/2 cup baking soda and ~25 drops of Healer's Blend essential oil (link in photo!). Double this recipe for multiple mattresses or for a King. ⠀

3. Shake that blend up and sprinkle on top of your mattress. Let it sit for a few hours. Studies have shown the longer, the better!⠀

4. After a few hours, or when you get home from work, whip out the vacuum and give the mattress a thorough once or twice over!⠀

There you have it! Simple, natural and delightful. Studies show that a number of the oils in my Healer's Blend are very effective on reducing household dust mites. The key factor is time though. If you're going away for a weekend, do this before you go and vacuum once you get home. ⠀
