DIY Homemade Healthy Hand Spray

DIY Homemade Healthy Hand Spray

DIY-Healthy-Homemade-Hand-SprayThere are so many toxic hand gels and sprays out there claiming to kill all sorts of things, which they probably do but they rarely tell you about the negative side effects of using them. Such as stripping your hands of it’s natural oils, throwing your gut health out of wack, or that they include a really toxic ingredient called triclosan. Why bother with all the garbage when you can make your own moisturizing hand spray that helps clean your hands and may also help boost your immune system? Win-Win!

I carry this in my purse and have one in each vehicle. I love that it doesn’t dry my hands out and that it’s easy and safe to apply on my kids after we’re out in public.

Our Review of Dr. Mercola Silver Solution – Colloidal Silver

Our Review of Dr. Mercola Silver Solution – Colloidal Silver

dr mercola silver solution review

Since diving into natural living there have been a lot of things for us to learn about. Colloidal Silver is one of them. I remember several years ago being sick and a friend giving me some colloidal silver. I had no idea what it was other than what my husband had told me about it making people’s skin tone turning a blueish/silver color. Since I didn’t know what it was or how to use it and didn’t want to turn into a silver person I didn’t use it. Now that I know better I can say when used safely it can be a really great option for natural healing.

The first time I tried colloidal silver was with my then two year old son that had a horrible ear infection. After trying several different natural routes and nothing was working we took him to the Dr and got a prescription (not something we do often). After completing the full prescription we went back to the Dr where they told us he still had an infection and would have to put him on a higher powered antibiotic, oh and to not worry when it turned his stool red. Ya, not happening…we went back to natural solutions and tried garlic ear drops in combination with colloidal silver. That did the trick!

There is a lot to know about using colloidal silver before purchasing a bottle. You’ll want to make sure it is in the right quantity and is from a reputable source. I have followed Dr Mercola’s site for quite some time and have felt like they were one of those reputable sources. You can learn a lot about colloidal silver on the internet. I would recommend you read this article about colloidal silver and read this article as they explain the ins and outs pretty clearly.

When Dr Mercola’s team contacted me and asked if I would try out their colloidal silver, I of course jumped at the chance! We’ve tried many different kinds of colloidal silver over the years and have had varying degrees of success from brand to brand. I’ve been pleased with this brand and my husband even more so! He actually ordered several bottles after we’ve been able to see it in action. Our son had an abscess above one of his teeth and since putting the colloidal silver on it, we’ve noticed a huge difference (even over the brand we had been using previously). I love that Dr. Mercola’s is 10 ppm (parts per million) which is the most advantageous dosage. 

Would you like to try some for yourself? Well, we’re doing a giveaway for 2 bottles!!

Congratulations to our winner Amanda Bessi!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Open to all US residents 18 years and older. Void where prohibited. Winner will be announced on our Facebook page within 24 hours of Giveaway ending.  I have received no financial compensation from Dr. Mercola and all the opinions given in this article are my own.

My Diary

Post ID:

Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad of benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume; it is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities which continue to be Lavender’s most notable qualities. Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections.  Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.

Lavender Essential Oils Primary Benefits:

  • Soothes occasional skin irritations 
  • Lavender reduces anxious feeling and promotes peaceful sleep* 
  • Helps ease feelings of tension.*

Top Uses for Lavender Essential Oil: 

  1. Diffuse alone or combine with citrus oils to promote calm feelings.
  2. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet at bedtime.
  3. Reduces appearance of skin imperfections.
  4. Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.
  5. Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender with water in a spray bottle
  6. Add a few drops to dryer balls.
  7. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck.

How to Use Lavender Safely:

  • When applying topically dilute with a carrier oil such as coconut or fractionated coconut oil.

Used In These Favorite Recipes:

The key to essential oils is Quality. Not all essential oils are created equally. In fact, most of them are not beneficial to you and are often synthetic. When buying essential oils make sure they are absolutely pure. If you want to order the brand I trust and personally use, email oils@modern-wellness.com to learn how to get started with them in your home.
