DIY Healthy Hand Sanitizer
“Consumers may think antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs, but we have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water,” said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). “In fact, some data suggests that antibacterial ingredients may do more harm than good over the long-term.” Read more here.
My DIY hand sanitizer is an anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal spray & immune support without the harmful hormone disrupting & immune crashing side effects of traditional hand sanitizer. When you use chemical antibiotics found in antibacterial hand soap and traditional hand sanitizers, they are strictly antibacterial (antibiotic)...aka: they kill bacteria only, not viruses. Sure, this is helpful in fighting secondary bacterial infections, but it will not kill coronavirus..or any other virus for that matter. Neither will hand washing.
Antibacterial products actually weaken the immune system and wipe out all of the GOOD bacteria (probiotics) on your skin's surface that we need to help FIGHT infection and protect us every day. Traditional hand sanitizers are also known for disrupting hormone balance in the body.
Just use undiluted Silver Shield in an amber spray bottle. Safe for EVERYONE and also kills bacteria, virus, fungus...while only supporting/building your immune system!!!
This is what I have available for patients to use in my office.
Essential Shield contains 10 different essential oils: 100% pure essential oils of Citrus sinensis (Orange) peel, Eugenia caryophyllata (Clove) bud, Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) bark, Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) flower, Citrus x limon (Lemon) whole fruit, Pinus sylvestris (Pine) needle, Rosmarinus officinalis (Wild Rosemary) leaf, Mentha piperita (Peppermint) leaf & flower, Citrus x paradisi (Grapefruit) peel, Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) leaf.
NOTE: always read labels to ensure there are no plant extracts/essential oils you are allergic to. Also, if you are sensitive to grains, especially corn or wheat (like me), or struggle with auto-immune of any kind, grain alcohol is a no-no. That was why I chose 70% isopropyl alcohol instead. The alcohol content MUST BE greater than 60% to have sanitizing properties. Also, rubbing alcohol is drying, so just know you may need more moisturizer if you're using it all the time. And be careful
NOTE: I learned recently that despite popular DIY blogging advice, Aloe Vera gel IS NOT suitable as a stand alone base for DIY hand sanitizer. A) Most are stuffed with ploymers. B) It can be incorporated as a 200x powder concentration in the water phase of the formulation...but who in the world is going to sort this out as a DIY'er... if you want to, I'm not the person to ask for advice ;) and C) If you did use a pure aloe vera gel, you could mix it with the alcohol BUT you would have to be certain the alcohol % stayed above 60%. You could not use essential oils in it because they would likely not stay in solution and you would then have risks for burning/irritating your skin. Sooo...yeah.
Before you read any further, let's read Psalm 91 and be reminded of God's faithfulness & hope BEFORE we do anything else:
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For He will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 IF you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
Also, God's Word warns us of the increase of natural disasters and disease as evidence we are living in the end times AND that He is coming back SOON in Matthew 24 & Luke 11 (I encourage you to read both chapters, in context). Here's the highlight from Matthew 24:
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for[a]all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines,[b]pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
Definition of Pestilence (Oxford dictionary): a fatal, epidemic disease
Ok, now for some science, facts and practical advice. Here are a few more fact-based pieces of news/science from trusted Doctors/colleagues/sources to encourage you with:

Coronavirus: Symptoms & Natural Solutions
Developing information is showing that COVID-19 prevention is similar to flu prevention (and all of these can be taken in higher doses for treatment of any virus). The COVID-19 symptoms include: fever, coughs, shortness of breath, upper-respiratory symptoms, GI symptoms, diarrhea, and general body aches. Please stay home if you have any of these symptoms. CALL your Doctor before running to the Doctor/hospital. I personally am offering phone consults in place of in-office visits for anyone who has any related symptoms. I will open up more hours (for phone consultations) temporarily, if needed, to help in any way I can. Let's be part of the solution, and not the problem.
Pick a few preventative options from the list and be proactive, but not afraid. Calm others with prayer, truth, facts, and options who are living in fear. Also, if you know your health is not up to par, I highly recommend being proactive and scheduling an appointment to get your health restored, which in turn, strengthens your immune system and mind and is one of the best overall things someone can do. This is not the time to be scared, tired, stressed, and depressed, as it does affect our immune systems. Laughter, faith, hope, gratitude and joy are great medicine!
The Nature's Sunshine products on the list below can be purchased at wholesale cost through my online store. All Sunshine Rewards (autoship) orders & orders over $150 get FREE shipping. We have many of them in stock in my office, as well.
*In my opinion, the best options for kids are: Silver Shield, VS-C liquid, Echinace/goldenseal (liquid), essential oils, cod liver oil, beta glucan chewies, the above homeopathics + healthy diet of low sugar/grains, sufficient fruits/veggies, sufficient protein & plenty of good fats which is necessary for a healthy immune system. Also, drink plenty of pure water, fresh pressed green juices with ginger, and be diligent to get them good sleep!
**If we get quarantined, enjoy the time with your family. Seek the Lord diligently. Turn the TV off. Pray together, Play together. Take communion together. Get some rest. Catch up on house projects. Cast off fear & search God's Word for how He is working all of this together for our good and His glory. He is aware of every detail of our lives and every detail of the world.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.- Proverbs 17:22 NLT
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. -John 14:27 NKJV
When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.-Psalm 94:19 NLT
I will do my best to update this blog if/as more information arises. I am praying for all of you, in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, our Healer, our Protector, and our Peace!
Healthy Summer: sun & bugs
SUMMER = SUN.
Hopefully you know by now that the the sun isn't "bad." Too much sun (aka: sunburn or blisters is not good). Chemical sunscreen is WAY WORSE. There is so much FEAR around being in the sun. We need sun for health and to produce Vitamin D, however, most people guts are so sick they can't make Vitamin D no matter how much sun they get. Read this blog about what people DON'T KNOW about Vitamin D Deficiency. Now hear me out... if you're going to be in the sun long enough to burn, you need a pure, natural sunscreen. Exercise discernment and use your brain. The point is, you need to check your products because a lot of what is claiming to be "natural" is junk & very harmful to your health, liver, skin, hormones, immune system, etc. MOST SUNSCREENS are doing way more harm than good. On the EWG - Skin Deep Website, you can look up your products to see how they rate and what's REALLY in them.
If we are eating AND PROPERLY ASSIMILATING healthy fats (Gall Bladder 101) and have a healthy gut and liver, we can stay in the sun much longer without burning. We can then utilize the sun to make more Vitamin D and hold onto our summer tan longer!! We NEED good fats in our diet (coconut oil, grass-fed butter, avocados, organic virgin olive oil, raw nuts/ seeds, etc) for natural sun protection, to produce hormones, to stabilize blood sugars, to increase metabolism, to fight infection, to keep our immune system strong, and to fight inflammation overall. If you have/had Candida overgrowth, allergies, auto-immune disease, bloating/belching/heartburn, or constipation/diarrhea, etc your liver/gall bladder likely isn't working well, which means you COULD BE eating lots of good fats already but your body may not be able to use/digest them properly.
>>> HEALTHY FATS DO NOT MAKE YOU FAT <<<
So EAT your sunscreen from now on. Get your gut healthy and you'll notice you can tolerate the sun, people, food, stress, and life in general much better ;)
And for those long play or work days in the sun, find a GOOD, CLEAN sunscreen that isn't causing further internal damage. Here's what I use. They have a few different options.
When you DO burn by accident, here are some options that ACTUALLY WORK:
1. spritz or wipe skin with RAW apple cider vinegar (can soak a washcloth if necessary for bad burns of any sort). (Optional; stinky but it really helps with bad burns).
2. Apply Nature's Sunshine's Silver Shield Rescue Gel either alone or add to the following recipe (#4).
*This stuff is amazing for any burn, cut, wound, fever blister, sty or other topical wound/infection!
3. Nature's Sunshine's Aloe Vera Gel (+ Lavendar and/or Peppermint Essential Oil)
*You can add the Silver Shield Rescue Gel (equal parts silver & Aloe) to have a pre-made, smell-good, feel-good, REALLY GOOD "Natural After-Sun Care Gel". It will help prevent peeling, blistering & pain. You can essentially savor your "excess sun" and turn it into a tan! :)
Summer = Bugs.
I hate reading long blogs when I really just want recipes. SO, here you go:
1. HONEST CO. BUG SPRAY safe, non-toxic bug spray.
I found this 2-pack at our local Costco in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
2. BUG REPELLANT LOTION (If you're a DIY-er)
1 Tbsp Nature's Sunshine UNSCENTED Hand & Body Lotion
4 drops PURITY Essential Oil Blend
3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
1 drop Lemongrass Essential Oil
3. Got a tick?
Don't touch it! Put 1 drop Peppermint essential oil directly onto the tick. It will back itself out in about 20 seconds! And then you have all the antibiotic and antimicrobial properties of the peppermint oil going directly into the tick bite to help prevent infection or irritation! Thank you LORD.
I use Nature's Sunshine Products for everything because of their quality, purity, integrity & variety. EVERY product is far beyond ORGANIC standard. I can get pretty much everything I need (supplements, herbs, lotion, essential oils, flower remedies, cleanses, kids stuff, cleaning stuff, etc all in 1 place...at wholesale cost... get 30% commission on what I buy for myself AND 25% back in Rewards points (1 point = $1) because I use their Sunshine Rewards Program! I've been using them since 2008 and have never found any company that meets all these needs ;) All the photos above are Nature's Sunshine Products I carry through my ONLINE STORE.
Read more about the company & benefits of having an account here.
Genesis 1:3-5 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
We are all surrounded by incredibly toxic chemicals every day that poison our liver, disrupt our hormones, keep us sick and inflamed, irritate our skin and lungs, mess with our brain and nervous systems, and affect thousands of daily functions in our bodies. Yes, the foods we eat and the products we use all affect us in some way. If you could see what I see working with patients every week, you could never doubt the reality of the damage these things are doing. Moreover, if you or anyone you know has a lot of symptoms no one can figure out OR is sensitive to a lot of food, medicine, vaccines, chemicals, textures, sounds, light, etc they need to read my blog on MTHF-R Gene Mutation. I would advise anyone with (a family member who has) Autism or Spectrum Disorders, any Auto-Immune Disease or Inflammatory (Bowel) Disease to read it, as well. There are simple, affordable alternatives to the harsh chemicals and beauty products we are using that make a HUGE difference in our family's health.
Changing your products over is one piece of the puzzle. There's no need to panic. You don't have to do it all at once. Just make a point to be proactive about this. You can start by seeing how your own products rank on the Skin Deep EWG website or app. It is very eye opening and you can see exactly what's in your products and the damage each ingredient causes (ie: carcinogenic, hormone disruptor, etc).
I have tried and researched A LOT of products over the years. Many "natural products" don't work so great...but I've found my or created my favorites. I am determined to keep my home & body "green"...so I don't give up easily if I don't find what I'm looking for right away.
Here is a (growing) list of what I use:
Make-up & Skin Care; Hair & Sunscreen:
BeautyCounter - I was first introduced to this line in 2014. I use BeautyCounter for my hair care, skin care, make-up & sunscreen (best sunscreen I've found to date - smells good, feels good, non-toxic & IT WORKS!)
*Check out "The NEVER LIST" of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals that they never use as ingredients in their products. This includes the over 1,400 chemicals banned or restricted in personal care products by the European Union, plus additional chemicals screened by BeautyCounter and found to be of concern.
**I also use:
Acure Organics Brightening (Seaweed) Face Scrub
Trader Joe's Tea Tree Bar Soap or Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash occasionally for my body.
Anti-aging Face Serum & Stretch Mark (Prevention/Treatment) Serum:
I make my own. Here's the recipe
I used to use this as a day or night time moisturizer, skin treatment (face, chest, shoulders, back of hands - anywhere that's exposed to sun a lot) and during pregnancy on my breasts, belly, bottom & lower back. I rotate between this product & my BeautyCounter Moisturizers for my face. When my skin feels moist I don't use this during the day if I'm going to be wearing make-up as it's a little too oily for MY skin to use under liquid foundation. I still use it on my neck, chest, shoulders and at night quite often. It has healed almost ALL of my sun damage, discoloration, and uneven skin tone. When I use this I do not use any eye cream. This is my 1-step product.
I got a facial in December 2016 and the girl asked what I used because she was surprise I didn't have more sun damage at age 37. When I've had facials in the past (which isn't very often), they always scolded me and pointed out how damaged my skin was, telling me I really need to wear more sunscreen & get facials more often (even estheticians aren't the "experts" in skin. (Healthy skin is a WHOLE BODY approach. And most sunscreen does more damage than good) That was also before my gut had healed ;) All of it plays a role just to be clear.
I make my own Salt Scrub. Here's my recipe
I make my own. Here's my recipe
*I've made many versions of this recipe for lighter/heavier cream, etc
Nature's Sunshine Hand & Body Lotion (available through my ONLINE STORE; I use this when I want hand cream or lotion instead of body butter & when I wear "white" so my clothes don't get greasy and stained)
*Sometimes I scent my body butter or lotion with Nature's Sunshine Essential Oils - do not use citrus oils in your lotions or skin products if you will be going in the sun; They will make you photosensitive (burn easily). I LOVE the CORE Balancing Blend or just plain Peppermint Essential Oil for a minty fresh moisturizer.
**Skip the peppermint oil if you're nursing, as it can reduce milk production
1. I make my own Tooth Polish.
*My teeth have never felt so clean! And it's super easy & inexpensive! My Biologic Dentist approved this re-mineralizing recipe:) Check out my blog on Natural Oral Health & Healing Cavities. I personally do not floss. To this day I've still only had 2 tiny cavities. Diet & Proper Oral Health matter immensely!
**Skip the peppermint oil if you're nursing, as it can reduce milk production
2. I also use Trader Joe's all natural, fluoride-free Fennel, Propolis & Myrrh Toothpaste
1. I make my own Homemade "Piperwai" deodrant. It WORKS & smells better better than the original!!
*You can buy the original Piperwai at Piperwai.com
2. When I'm too lazy to make my own, I use Schmidts brand. It's a little "scratchy" but works well.

I use Nature's Sunshine Essential Oils & Nebulizing Diffuser exclusively.
I do not use chemical fragrance candles at all anymore.
I'm still experimenting with new ideas when time permits. I will continue to update this blog as I update my life ;)
NOTE: You can use my ESSENTIAL SHIELD MULTI-PURPOSE CONCENTRATED CLEANER for body wash, shampoo, dish soap, fruit & veggie wash & more!
I've used Nature's Sunshine Products for over a decade. They have NEARLY EVERYTHING I need except beauty products. I can get herbs/supplements, protein powders, essential oils, flower essences, kids products and cleaning products (and more) from 1 place knowing they are 100% pure in quality, very potent, AND the products work! You can order as much or little as you like, whenever you want. I love that no one is forced to do auto-ship. However, I personally utilize their SUNSHINE REWARDS AUTO-SHIP PROGRAM because it is such a great deal and I would be spending the money on these products anyway...
I've been on NSP's Sunshine Rewards Auto-ship Program for several years, which gives me 25% rewards points on every dollar I spend (1 point = 1 dollar) + FREE SHIPPING. You simply have to commit to an order of $100+/month (for at least 3 months) and in return you get all these perks from a company that has over 600 amazing, pure & potent products to offer! So the more I buy in 1 place, the more FREE PRODUCTS (of my choice) I earn. The 1st 3 months on auto-ship you get 10% back. Then 15% back in months 4-6, then 20% back months 7-9...and then they give you 25% ($25) back on every $100 you spend after 9 months of auto-ship and ongoing! If you need several things for your family & don't mind being on a $100/mo or more auto-ship, it's the best way to get the most bang for your buck! You can change your shipping date each month as well as the content of your order.
Oil Pulling Instruction & Benefits
OIL PULLING is a very simple, inexpensive home remedy anyone can do for improved oral & systemic health, whiter teeth, headache/migraine relief or anytime you are feeling low on energy, sick or "off".
HOW TO: Place ~1 Tbsp Virgin Coconut Oil in your mouth. Swish around your mouth and back & forth through your teeth slowly for up to 20 minutes. DO NOT swallow the oil. Spit it in the trash can when you are finished. It helps to be distracted when you're "pulling" so that you can last longer and not gag (ie: while you take shower, make breakfast, read your Bible, etc). Even 5 minutes is helpful if you can't do a full 20 minutes in the beginning. Grace. Do your best ;)
*Add 1 drop of Peppermint or Clove essential oil to the coconut oil while you pull for additional health benefits like oral pain or infections, colds/flu, or to relieve migraine headaches. It works amazingly well!
I have witnessed remarkable testimonies about Oil Pulling from patients with all of the above conditions and more! It literally "pulls" infection, toxins & inflammation out of the body!! If you have ANY kind of oral health problem, it is affecting your whole body in ways you do not know. Check out my blog on Natural Oral Health & Healing Cavities Naturally.
Thank you Lord for another simple tool to use.... your yoke IS easy & your burden really is light!

Cooking with Essential Oils
Did you know you can use essential oils in your cooking?! My favorite Nature's Sunshine essential oils to use in the kitchen are: Cinnamon, Clove, Lemon, Lime, Orange, Wild Oregano, Peppermint (forgot to mention in video!), Pink Grapefruit, Rosemary, Sweet Marjoram & Wild Thyme.
All oils mentioned in this video are available through my my ONLINE STORE.
DO NOT use any essential oil (especially in cooking or internally) if you are not 100% positive it is organically grown, extracted without petroleum solvents or high heat/chemicals, GMO-free & completely unadulterated. "Therapeutic grade" really means nothing & is strictly a marketing term. MOST essential oils on health food store shelves contain contaminants (pesticides/insecticides, heavy metals like lead, additives, petroleum solvents, etc) and/or are genetically modified (GMO). Just as essential oils go directly into our bloodstream within seconds AND every cell in our body within 30 minutes, so do the contaminants of these "cheaper" oils. The harmful effects can be worse then the benefits of the oil.
*All essential oils from NATURE'S SUNSHINE exceed this criteria, which is why I personally use & recommend them :)

Essential Oils are Not Created Equal
Essential oils are all the craze! Praise God healthy and holy things like this are becoming "trendy"!! Dr. Mom has more tools in her toolbox... less people are treating with chemical antibiotics... more people are reaching for holistic remedies for stress, illness, pain and dis-ease! I LOVE IT!!! Essential Oils are SO UNIVERSAL and safe that I use them with MOST people I have the honor of working with!
However, there are a few things to know. "Therapeutic grade" is a common term thrown around which doesn't hold any merit, similar to the term "evidence-based medicine" used to push Pharmaceutical drugs and bash natural medicine. Creative marketing is exactly that...it's a creative way to make things "sound good" but really don't mean anything. You can "create" research to match your claims....it is very sad. Money talks and it is hard to find true integrity with products, food, doctors, businesses, etc anymore.
BUYER BEWARE. You MUST know your manufacturer and your product in order to get the results you hope for and expect. Let me tell you a story...
A while back I had an itchy spot on my left foot, between my toes. I was pretty certain it was "athlete's foot" (yeast...Gross...I know). Well I use Nature's Sunshine Products and had PLENTY of tea tree oil on hand. I stock like 100 products in my tiny little herb store! Well, something to know about me is...I am frugal ;) SO, I decided since it was just "my foot" I would use this opportunity to use up a leftover bottle of NOW brands ORGANIC Tea Tree Oil I had on hand for a few years. Nothing was happening. ZERO results. After about a week, I got a little concerned thinking this was something more serious... but one thing I KNOW to do is PRAY FIRST. The Holy Spirit told me to try my NSP brand of tea tree oil, better than organic and 100% PURE... as pure and potent as you can get. The rash and itchy-ness immediately started to resolve itself!! I let my "thriftiness" override what I already knew.... and wasted a week suffering with that silly, itchy rash! GET MY POINT??
NO, this is not a sales pitch, rather an example of WHY I use the products I do. I have toured, in detail, the manufacturing facility. I have personally met and picked the brains of the research and development scientists, quality control analysists, etc. I have been to many seminars and asked MANY questions...and PRAYED a LOT. I have used these products for almost 10 years for good reason...they stand behind them, they meet all requirements, they work with utmost integrity, they are affordable, they are accessible through me OR online, at wholesale OR retail, and THEY WORK!
Essential oils, herbs and supplements are in NO WAY created equal. DoTerra and Young Living are also quality products that yield results, and I am sure there are a FEW others. BUT I WOULD NOT recommend purchasing essential oils from just any health food store. A label is not created to solely inform you, it is created to SELL YOU. Find someone you truly trust to purchase from who has the results & integrity (evidence!) to back up their claims. Nature's Sunshine products are pure enough to ingest, but please do not do that unless you truly know what you are doing. Topical administration through the spine is actually the most direct access into the bloodstream and cells ;)

Essential Oils - God's Medicine
NATURAL. POWERFUL. SAFE. NO SIDE EFFECTS.
There are a FEW great companies producing quality LIVING OILS, and MANY producing impure, toxic, and synthetic products. I do not recommend purchasing oils off the the health food store shelves (even from Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc).
It’s important to #1 – know your manufacturer #2- choose the correct product(s)/oils for YOU (or work with someone who can help you with this), and #3 – know HOW to use your product. When I work with someone, I use various forms of analysis to customize exactly what their body needs. It will often look slightly different from what their friend with similar symptoms needs. Many people do not get the results they hoped for because they simply don’t know what they are doing, they purchase junk products, and/or they get their info from the media/unreliable sources. Thus, you have people who claim natural medicine doesn’t work.
ALL of my essential oils are 100% pure, organic and unadulterated, making them BEYOND THERAPEUTIC GRADE. This short video helps you understand what to look for in essential oils, and the hype of marketing.
With Nature’s Sunshine Products, we ONLY use the highest quality, organically grown plants, with zero compromise. EVERY single batch is tested. If the raw materials come from the U.S. we can certify them organic. If the raw material comes from India or Africa, for example, we cannot CERTIFY them organic because of that country’s laws. However, we investigate and test everything about our raw materials from the seed history to farming practices to the growing, harvesting and export of the raw materials. Our minimum standard is organic. Watch & See:
