Nature's Antiviral Sanitizing Spray

One of the most valuable benefits of pure essential oils is their ability to kill a virus. Yes, you heard that right KILL a virus and, without side effects mind you!  This reason alone makes essential oils universally beneficial for all mankind because our bodies battle bacterial and viral infections daily. Additionally, more virulent strains of bacterial infection like MRSA are growing increasingly resistant to antibiotics.  But here's the kicker... Traditional prescription antibiotics cannot kill a virus, did you know that?  However, our ever generous planet offers us a superhero solution to the complex health hazard of antibiotic resistance - essential oils.  It's so simple it's almost unbelievable but it's true, spend some time with Google and learn for yourself because I love validation!  

 

Antiviral-Santizing-Spray

 

Now that school is back in full swing so are microbes that make us very nervous, namely Enterovirus D68.  Tis the season for enterovirus related illness especially contagious in schools. This virus isn't new but the strain showing up this fall is spreading rapidly and that IS new.  Enterovirus D68 is a big worry for children with compromised respiratory systems ie: asthma, chemo patients, infants. After reading many articles, a common preventative is to wash hands often especially in public places like schools, stores and public transportation. "Store bought hand sanitizers are not enough", this comment was made on national news last night. Not a good choice anyway, many contain triclosan which the Environmental Protection Agency has listed as a pesticide. Let's get serious and put pure essential oils to work instead. They're portable, strong enough to kill a virus and they can protect your family safely, responsibly and effectively. In my experience, a small spray bottle is the best application to take with you or send with your kids. Glass or PET plastic spray bottles are widely available and affordable. However, you can add antiviral EOs to Naked Salve or a roller bottle if that's your preference!

FYI - I made sure this blend wouldn't be a problem for little hands that rub their eyes.  I tried rubbing my eyes after sanitizing my hands and all was well, no burn. Good news!  Everything in Nature's Antiviral Sanitizer can be used to fight infection should you or a loved one succumb to Enterovirus D68.  I will suggest two additional essential oils however: Melaleuca to assist Oregano (watch how) and,  Airway Respiratory Blend in case an infection goes to the lungs. Airway can be inhaled or diffused to help open up airways.

I'm grateful beyond words for what I've learned and experienced by using pure essential oils daily, they are a "lifestyle" in our home.  Stay well, and informed!

 

ingredients
Directions
  1. Add essential oils to empty spray bottle, top off with alcohol free witch hazel and a pinch of salt. The salt acts as an emulsifier but this is optional. If you decide against adding salt to emulsify, shake bottle gently before each use.

Thank you for this spray recipe. I will make it ASAP! I see on a map this terrible virus is in two states next to mine. That is way too close for comfort. Bless you for your dedication to good health. The ball game is in our courts with health and wellness, can’t depend on medicine and doctors for everything these days.

Can you add Melaleuca to the spray or should it be layered separately?

What does diffused mean and how can you diffuse oils?

I would use the sanitizing spray as published and save the antibiotic protocol Cold & Flu bomb with oregano, melaleuca and shield for when illness actually strikes.

My experience is with dietary standard Melaleuca and Oregano from Spark Naturals Michele (approved for internal use) I can’t speak for your brand of tea tree because I don’t have experience with it nor know what the label states. However, topical use of pure EOs for MRSA can be extremely effective but application must be consistent.

Can this be used with infants and during pregnancy?
Thanks!(I’ve read to stay away from oregano and some of the ingredients in shield)

Can you ingest tea tree and oregano? We have had repeated MRSA. I watched the combination video and was amazed!

I would add those additional essential oils to a cold and flu protocol should you come down with either. There’s no need to add them to the sanitizing spray :)

Is this safe for kiddos with the Shield? How do you keep it moisturizing?

what is the cold and flu protocol? You make the hand sanitizer as in the receipe, but how do you implement the other? Is it something you do besides using the sanitizer?

I’m telling you, this stuff is the best toy, hand, and surface (hard or soft) sanitizer EVER!!! Cleaning my preschool classroom is a SNAP with this mixture Tripled in my giant (glass) cleaning spray bottle!
I started using it to clean when one of the kids was diagnosed with Hand-Foot-Mouth. I was a cleaning/sanitizing fool! But ya know what? NO ONE ELSE got it! I attribute that to this spray! I even mist the book/library area (soft cushions & books) with it! Leaves no residue, smells wonderful! ♡♡

Our littles use this spray regularly but not daily, with no issues or side effects. If you’d like to make the spray a little more moisturizing, add a tablespoon of almond oil!
