How to Make Hand Sanitizer

This video is a bit different for us, but we thought it might something that people might be interested in learning how to make. We love Keto because all of its health benefits, not just the weight loss with that in mind we are always looking for a health advantage in our daily lives. Sarah works in a Middle School and we also have young children who are exposed to germs all the time, especially this time of year.  This DIY hand sanitizer is made with natural ingredients and will even help soften your hands.

Cold and flu season is already here, at least here in the Pacific Northwest.  We’ve already had unseasonably cold weather with temperatures down in the the thirties.  There are a lot of virus and bugs going around, so we thought this was a good think to share.  Sarah and I are always looking for a health advantage and using hand sanitizer while it may seem like a little thing, it actually can go a long way in fighting germs.

One of the ingredients we used is “Thieves Oil” and the story behind this oil is fascinating.

The Plague

(taken from https://www.essential-oils-info.com/the-history-of-thieves-oil-blend/)

Back in the time of the Plague in the 1400s, authorities noticed that thieves were stealing items from the homes of the dead. This puzzled them because everyone that came in contact with someone with the Plague also died. They couldn’t figure out how these thieves were staying alive after being exposed to the Plague. Once caught, the magistrate offered the thieves leniency if they would explain how they were able avoid contracting this deadly disease. It turns out that these thieves were perfumers and spice traders who knew what to use to avoid getting the disease. Hence the name “thieves” was born.

We use essential oils regularly in our household, and have several diffusers that we use regularly.  I (CJ) have a nightly routine of mixing a blend of several essential oils to facilitate better sleep, relaxation and overall health.  Anyway, we thought we’d just share this with the hopes that it might help keep everyone healthy.
