Herbal Vinegar Hand Sanitizer


by Shoshanna Easling

February 2012

I am a mother of two. My son Jeremiah James is 6 years old and all boy. He has a big imagination and is always using it. My little man loves to ruff and tumble. Penelope Jane is my youngest. She is 17 months and thinks she is a princess that is 17 years. She loves dancing, singing, and of course ruff housing with her brother. They love each other so much, and boy do I love them. They melt my heart!

I love staying busy! Keeping moving and making things happen. My family is the most important thing to me. Most of the time we are all together. Working, playing, and of course ruff housing, but always together.

With all of our busy lives we interface with many people and places. Parasites, germs, bacteria and disease are out there: ready to move into our bodies. With all my research I know that being healthy and having a healthy gut protects us from most of it. Yes, some bacteria is needed and very good for us. Yes, germs can help to build the immune system. But not all bacterias are good and not all germs are going to be met with a strong immune system.

I love my kids. I want to protect them. Keep them healthy and strong. One way I do that is by making a Herbal Vinegar Hand Sanitizer. It is simple, organic, and I know it is great for them. Herbal Vinegar Hand Sanitizer help to protect my children from all of those unwanted creatures looking for a home. When in need we have it! When in doubt, we use it! Now you can too!

Herbal Hand Sanitizer Recipe

1/2 Cup Orange Peel
1/2 Cup Eucalyptus Herb
1/4 Cup Lemon Peel
1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

Pour all ingredients into a glass pint jar, filling 1/2 an inch from the top. Cap and store in a cool, dark place for 3 weeks. Strain off the herbs and pour liquid into a spritz bottle. Spray those germs away and go have some fun!

Hello!!!!

First of all I just wanted to thank you for sending my order so fast!!! I did purchase the Herbs Made Simple DVD from the No Greater Joy website which is how I found out about this website. I can’t wait for my Dr. Cinnamon Tea & Rise & Shine Tea that I ordered!!

I’ve started watching the video and I was SO surprised about the garlic poultice!!! I actually said out loud in my house, “You mean to tell me that I have a natural decongestant in my house that has more uses than spaghetti sauce & cooking?! And all I need is garlic cloves, cheese cloth, & hot water?!” Yep, made me want to stomp my foot when I realized how much money I have wasted purchasing cold medications.

I really appreciate this because my son is 3 and a lot of the over the counter medications are not made for someone his age & weight. I would rather give him something that will not harm him, but will help him at the same time.

THANK YOU Shoshanna!!!! You, your mother and your family have truly been blessed with some precious gifts and I thank you for sharing them with us!!


Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
