Natural Hand Sanitizer Recipe

 

The importance of having clean hands when we eat cannot be overemphasized!

 

Here is a great recipe for a natural hand sanitizer that you can keep next to each sink in the house and also in your purse when you are on-the-go!             

 

Ingredients:

  • 5-10 drops lavender essential oil - pure essential oil

  • 30 drops tea tree essential oil – pure essential oil

  • 1 tablespoon of denatured ethanol, purchase from my online store

  • 8 ounces 100% pure aloe vera gel (where to buy 100% pure aloe vera gel)

  • ¼ teaspoon Vitamin E oil – a natural preservative to increase shelf life, softens the hands

 

Method

Add essential oils and Vitamin E oil to a small glass bowl or container and swirl to mix. Add the ethanol to the oils and swirl again. Add this mixture to the aloe vera gel and mix well. Shake gently before each use.

 

*Sanitizer should last several months with the addition of Vitamin E to help preserve the aloe vera.

 

Instant Cure for Vaginal Yeast Infection

 

Anyone who says you should not douche when you have a yeast infection is someone who has never actually suffered with a yeast infection.

 

When experiencing a yeast infection, the only thing you really care about in the moment is to GET RID OF THE BURNING ITCH! And maybe you’ve tried over-the-counter yeast infection products, only to have the dreaded irritation return, over and over.


Listed below is information about a douching system. This must be done a specific way, otherwise douching can actually cause a bacterial invasion.

 

The secret is what you put in your douching equipment (Douche Syringe Bulb), which can be purchased at any drug store. You probably already have the secret ingredient in your bathroom cabinet, but if not, go to your local drug store and buy some 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, which is what your mother put on your cuts and sores when you were a kid.

 

Hydrogen Peroxide, aka H2O2, kills bacteria immediately and effectively. Remember how it would fizz up when your mom placed it on your cuts? That’s the H2O2 doing its job - killing bacteria. It kills yeast just as effectively. It does this magically in the vagina by fizzing up into all the moist, warm, dark crevices where yeast love to multiply. It kills them, which then kills the major symptom; namely the burning itch!

 

Instant Cure for Yeast Infection:

 

  • Fill your douching equipment half way with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide; then fill completely with water.

  • While sitting on the toilet (easiest) or laying down in the bathtub, insert into the vagina as deeply as possible and SLOWLY squeeze the bag until empty. Doing this slowly is important so the H2O2 has time to fizz up and kill the yeast effectively. You’ll immediately feel relief at this point.

  • Then refill the bag with plain water and squeeze deeply into the vagina FAST. Do this 4 or 5 times. This flushes all the dead yeast out of the vagina, which is very important! 
    The easiest way to do this is to have a container (a large yogurt container is perfect) or bowl filled with water next to you. Squeeze the empty bag totally. Put the inserter into the water and let go of the bag so it can suck up the water, without having to unscrew the inserter from the bag to refill. This is mostly a time saver. After all, this is supposed to be instant!

  • Now you’ve effectively killed all the yeast, and you now want to reintroduce acidophilus into the vagina so it can re-populate the space, allowing less room for any possible reintroduction of yeast. When you’re done flushing, unscrew the inserter, put in a capful of acidophilus powder, and if you have it, a level teaspoon of Boric Acid, Fill with water, shake a little, and SLOWLY reinsert into the vagina. The most important part is the acidophilus, which will re-populate the needed friendly bacteria in the vagina. Boric acid is a bonus as it is the perfect acidity for acidophilus to multiply in.

  • DRY YOURSELF OFF AND SMILE. You’ve just instantly cured your yeast infection! You can do this as often as you like. If you have a major invasion, you might need to do this a couple times a day. Or you can do it for maintenance as needed; after sex, right before your period, during a bout of antibiotics or steroids, or whenever you feel the itch returning.

  • If you’ve been itching and scratching your poor labia up till this point, you probably have damaged labia, I feel for you, this hurts. The FASTEST possible way to heal this damaged tissue is to first abstain from any sexual activity for a few days, then expose the labia to oxygen as much as possible. Ideally, you want to sit with everything exposed in front of a fan, or direct sunlight, or a cool breeze, as often as possible.

  • Please DO NOT walk around in tight jeans; that annoying crotch nob will only further exacerbate the tissue damage. The more you can expose the labia to air, the faster it will heal, thus giving yourself great relief from any irritation. Wear light clothing, dresses and sarongs are great!

  • If the itch is taking a while to disappear due to previous tissue damage; it is necessary sometimes to treat the symptoms of vaginal yeast infections while treating the cause of vaginitis. Try a handy anti-itch cortizone cream while you are healing, airing out your yoni. It really is a savior until the delicate tissue repairs itself.
