Hand SanitizerMany bacteria are carried on surfaces that we touch. Hand sanitizer is a well recommended kind of cleanser, and if it’ natural, it’s even better! Many soaps on the market have too many chemicals to be healthy for your skin. So, the natural path, is always the better path to take. Here’s a “solution” that you might like to consider, if you want to be as free from toxic chemicals as possible. I think plants, and natural remedies, supply all that we need for healthy living. The question is merely finding those solutions. That’s what we do, we find the answers to problems that confront us in this day and age, and toxic chemicals are an issue, so here’s your answer. This is how to make a natural hand sanitizer!

stovetop-potpourriOh wow, I never thought about this one, but it makes sense doesn’t it. If your cooking dinner, you can smell the food cooking right? So, stovetop potpourri is such an obvious alternative to the store bought, chemical ridden potpourri. This is an all natural “aroma therapy”. It’s easy to make, and a lot cheaper to what you can buy in stores. What a great idea! I think I’m going to make some right now!

Really all that you would need is to add some kind of scent to this little formula we bring to you here. Bubble bath just says luxury, why else would you use it?

I really appreciate all these clever people that come up with these awesome products for the general public, don’t you!
