It’s Flu season, and that means germs! Time to protect yourself, but if you’re like me you probably hate the smell and ickiness of commercial hand sanitizers. Lucky for us, it’s pretty easy to make your own since the main ingredient in most is rubbing alcohol.

For this week’s #MakersWednesday, we’re going to DIY some germ prevention!

How to make your own hand sanitizer:

1. Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 1 part witch hazel

2. Add a few drops of jojoba oil and vanilla fragrance. (Make sure you use a fragrance or essential oil that is skin safe!)

That’s it – this recipe is easy peasy, yummy and clean!

Sometimes creativity comes in surprising places. Sometimes you get so sick of being sick that you’ve just gotta draw it out. Here, an illustration of a sinus infection – sometimes the simple act of sketching can help you work through feelings of frustration and lost productivity.

I’ve been really into baths lately. Maybe it’s because I’m getting old and the hot water really does help with the stiff joints. 🙂

A bath tea is just like it sounds – a tea bag you put in the bath. In this one I combined dried Chamomile flowers, which are said to be relaxing and calming with dried Calendula (Marigold) flowers, which are said to help with inflammation and sore muscles. I added a few drops of lavender essential oil for good (relaxing) measure to the reusable tea bag.
