Cold & Flu season is here and rather than paying for expensive , chemical laden antibacterial sprays, why not make your very own disinfecting products with these 12 essential oils known for their antibacterial and antiviral properties.
DIY Hand Sanitizer Spray Recipe
- 60 ML Glass Spray Bottle
- 3 Tsp Aloe Gel
- 20 Drops White Thyme ( or any other essential oil or blend of essential oils above. Thieves is already a blend)
- Fill remainder of bottle with distilled, filtered, structured or alkaline water.
You can also add the essential oils directly to aloe gel or any natural lotion and have a squeezable or pumpable product.
While so many people are stocking up on clorox disinfectant wipes and leaving the shelves empty , take comfort knowing that you can still purchase the ingredients needed to make your own antiviral products at any health store or order from any reputable online company or Amazon. And if you are anything like me, then you already have many , if not all of these supplies already on hand.
I have actually been sick less often since switching to natural methods for my health & wellness like essential oils.
These cold & flu busting essential oils can also be diffused ( just be careful around pets, infants and pregnant women. Always double check the pre-cautions on each essential oil)
No Diffuser? No Problem! Just add the essential oils to some witch hazel and mist into the air.
Etsy has some amazing diffusers and essential oil diffusing jewelry.
