Keep it Clean people

Wash your hands WITH soap

Wash your hands with soap!

If I’m being honest, also avoid public bathrooms when possible.

Keeping your hands clean will keep you from accidentally touching your mouth or eyes with nasty germs that will get you sick.

Natural Hand Sanitizer

If you don’t know regular hand sanitizer can actually kill all the GOOD bacteria on your skin as well as germs.

Switching to a natural hand sanitizer and keeping it on you at all times is a good line of defense against germs.

You can get Dr. Bronners hand sanitizing spray here, or the Honest Co. also has a good one you can use.

Essential oils

Essential oils for antibacterial

Oregano, Clove, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Pine Needle oil are all essential oils that contain anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-septic or anti-inflammatory properties.

Using these oils topically or diffused in your home can help to keep you and your loved ones healthy.

As always with essential oils, use a carrier oil like olive or coconut oil if using topically, and do your research on the effects of each oil before using.

Don’t Lose your Head

worried and stressed

Number one priority: Don’t lose your mind by worrying.

Everything really will be okay, if not at this moment, eventually.

The best you can do is be prepared, and do your best to live without fear.

It’s okay to be worried about the current state of the world, but just try not to.

As Nick Fury said in the first Avengers film:

“Until such a time as the world ends, we will act as though it intents to spin on.”

The worse virus really is fear.

Do your best, forget the rest.
