Do you hate all this antibacterial gel s…

Do you hate all this antibacterial gel sitting around everywhere? Would you like to make your own natural and yet effective lotion for those times when the child in front of you has just wiped their streaming nose and is now smearing it all over the door knob you need to use? Or how about when you visit your dentist? People are always putting their fingers in their mouths to show us the tooth that hurts. When they leave our operatories those same fingers are on door knobs and handles, touching the front desk and may even be used to shake hands.
Thanks to Mary Hunt in the Sunday St. Paul Pioneer Press I can share a simple recipe to make something useful but not so noxious or perhaps better said obnoxious. She states the recipe is from which is a blog by a New Jersey pediatrician, a Dr. Lawrence D. Rosen. Dr. Rosen dispenses natural health advice on his blog. The recipe follows:

Equal portions of the following therapeutic essential oils: cinnamon bark,lemon, eucalyptus, clove and rosemary. Mix them with jojoba, avocado or grapeseed oil as a carrier and then use on hands as a sanitizer. Essential oils are very potent, so dilute adequately and test on a patch of skin before using liberally.

To your good health.
