Airborne Bacteria

A blend of Lemongrass and Geranium oils diffused into the air was found to reduce airborne bacteria by 89%. This may be helpful for our friends or neighbors dealing with mold from flooding and standing water. #cleanair

A “natural tick repellent

Rose-Geranium Oil
A “natural tick repellent,” this is an all natural alternative to deet-based sprays and other harsh chemical repellents.
Try a drop between your dog’s shoulder blades and one at the top of the base of tail. Put a drop on your pant legs while out hiking. #tickrepellent

Anti-Fungal Baby Wipes

1/2 c. distilled water
1 TBS vinegar
1/4 c. Aloe Vera gel
1 TBS. Calendula oil
1 drop Lavender essential oil
1 drop Tea Tree Essential Oil

From one of our readers “I made these wipes because I wanted something to gently discourage yeast diaper rashes. The vinegar and Essential Oils discourage yeast growth which
means you should not have too much trouble with these wipes getting moldy.”

To prepare, use a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Pour all your
ingredients in, cover the jar and shake to blend the ingredients. Place your wipes in a container and pour on enough solution to moisten them. Store any extra solution in the fridge. It should stay fresh for a long time especially if you used distilled water.

If a baby had a really red, raw Diaper Rash you might not want to use these wipes as vinegar may cause a burning sensation.

Lavindin or Lavender essential oil, an anti-histamine for allergies

I just read this from an Ayurveda list I’m on.
Lavindin or Lavender essential oil, an anti-histamine for allergies which reside in the liver, cuts through cholesterol hormones that are stagnant in the liver. It is bitter for cutting through fats and unprocessed food. They recommend this recipe but I suggest diluting with a little carrier oil before using on the skin. Let me know what you think.
Dosage:
10 drops on the liver ~ AM & PM daily
Place in palm and rub onto right side at rib cage
Transdermal, goes directly into bloodstream via skin layers

Lemon Eucalyptus vs. Citronella

Today’s Tip

I prefer lemon eucalyptus just because it has a slight lemon aroma under that citronella note instead of that weird, unpleasant note you get with citronella. I’ve found that by misting myself with either of these, I can reduce the mosquito bites. These two oils are pretty effective at eliminating bug attacks.

* Fill a plant mister and mist your clothes (check for stain
resistance on some fabrics). Contrary to public opinion, you don’t need to put it on your skin. Just in proximity since mosquitoes are repelled by smell. I’ll usually spray a bit in the air and then walk through it so my head/hair gets some.

* If you hang clothes on the line, put 1/4 oz in your rinse water
when you wash. If you use a dryer, the heat will flash off most of
the aroma although there will be some and, depending on how prone you are to mosquito bites, will still act as an effective mosquito repellent. #essentialoilbugspray
