Now that global condition due to the pandemic, requires us to focus more than ever on our personal hygiene and the hygiene of our space, I believe it is imperative that we should trust the power of nature and especially essential oils.
Essential oils do save!
In aromatherapy there is a fairly large number of essential oils with antiseptic & antibacterial properties that worth to incorporate them now –and forever- in our daily life.
By integrating them into products of personal hygiene we use on a daily basis, we can create a protection shield from germs for our body & our place - home, office.
Absolutely natural ways to use essential oils
& get advantage of their properties
1. Essential Oil Ceramic or Electric Burner
A simple, easy & safe way to use these essential oils to clean the atmosphere in the room where you live or work in, is by putting a few drops of them-disolved in a small amount of water or oil- in a ceramic or electric essential oil burner.
By this way, essential oils combined with the heat from candle can eradicate bacteria.
2. DIY Hand Sanitizer With Soothing Properties
- 94% Aloe Vera Gel
- 4% Vegetable Silicone or Natural Glycerin
- 10 drops Camphor e.o.
- 10 drops Lemon e.o.
- 10 drops Grapefruit e.o. (or eucalyptus e.o or tea-tree e.o.)
This gel sanitizer can be easily made at home & is suitable forthe whole family! It cleanse your hands while keeping skin soothed, conntrary to the most common alcohol that dehydrates skin.
