    You guys this is truly a nightmare. I moved into an apartment 3 months ago and guess what? I love the lavender information.
    They do have a fruity smell which I commented on when I first walked into the apartment to load my things inside. I didn’t know anything about them. I’ve been diagnosed with body lice by my doctor. When I went to a dermatologist he said it was stress. I haven’t been able to sleep but about 3 hrs. at night for three months. I am so tired.
