I don’t know how things are where you live, but it’s cold and flu season around here. A few weeks ago, Mike was out for two weeks with a nasty cold and flu and just this past week my mom caught a bug. I’ve upped my Vitamin C and Echninacea and so far so good.
And to add to my anti-germ arsenal, I thought I’d make a batch of hand sanitizer. I found this tutorial that uses three ingredients: rubbing alcohol, aloe vera gel and essential oil scent.
I removed the label and cleaned up an empty liquid soap bottle, mixed the ingredients and I’m armed and ready to fight those nasty buggies. You’ll notice that my sanitizer is green. That’s because I found this bottle of mint rubbing alcohol. It’s green and smells like mint. I also chose not to use the essential oil because the mixture is minty-smelling enough.
What are some of the ways you protect yourself against the cold and flu season?
Maybe you could find a recipe for a ‘paw sanitizer’ for when we walk outside?
