A study on the effectiveness of Eucalyptus Globulus against dust mites
done at the University of Sydney in Australia by Dr. Tovey used Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil when washing wool, sheets or linens. The study indicated that wool washed with a mixture of detergent and eucalyptus oil actually eliminated up to 95% of the dust mites in the wool. The study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, concludes that the method is effective, simple, inexpensive and eliminates the need for very hot water.
