DIY HAND SANITIZER
If you’re stuck somewhere and can’t wash your hands, using hand sanitizer is the next best thing. But what if you don’t have any sanitizer – and/or your local store has sold out?
No problem! Make your own! It’s very simple.
TIP: The CDC recommends using a sanitizer that’s at least 60% alcohol. This recipe meets that requirement.
- ⅓ cup aloe vera gel
- ⅔ cup isopropyl rubbing alcohol or organic vodka
- (optional) 2-3 drops organic, all-natural essential oil
Mix all the ingredients up in a bowl and pour into a clean container (like a bottle with a secure top. Optional: use a bottle with a spray attachment.)
Use a small amount and rub over the fronts and backs of your hands.
This also can make a thoughtful gift!
“More than aromatherapy, the propolis vaporizers / diffusers eliminate bacteria, mold, viruses, and even air pollution, as well as enhancing the health of humans and animals. These electrical appliances diffuse propolis (a resinous material made by bees), known to have very important therapeutic properties – antiseptic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and as an immune system booster.” (Source)
I love this all-natural, chemical-free way to sanitize a room. It eliminates bacteria, mold, viruses, and air pollutants. I actually have 3 propolis diffusers that work 24/7 at home and in my office. I recommended it for:
- respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis
- allergies to mold, pollen, mites
- weakened immune systems
- old or young people vulnerable to contagions
- areas with lots of humans, i.e. carriers of flu, colds, viruses (Source)

Molekule Air Purifier
Many air purifiers simply collect pollutants on a filter. Those pollutants can multiply and be released back into the air. Molekule uses nanotechnology to destroy pollutants at the molecular level. Molekule destroys the widest range of pollutants and mold, including viruses. You can find more information here.
I also like to use Young Living essential oils for purifying my home. Purification and Thieves are anti-microbial. Lavender or White Angelica add a nice relaxing feeling to the home or office. They have beautiful diffusers, too, and you can find the products here. The Thieves Household cleaner and Thieves wipes are also wonderful for sanitizing the home.
The Force of Nature Non-Toxic Cleaning System
This is one of my favorite tools that I use here at Cornerstone Wellness Center!
The Force of Nature is an appliance that turns tap water, plus a capsule of salt, water, and vinegar into a multi-purpose natural cleaner and deodorizer as effective as bleach.
Instead of using toxic cleaners, we use the Force of nature to quickly and easily make a fresh batch of cleaning solution every two weeks. The Force of Nature powers through odors, grease, grime, soap scum and sticky, icky messes as effectively as bleach. It cleans virtually any surface – sealed stone, glass, stainless steel, wood, laminate, porcelain, composite, grout, tile, plastic & rubber. I even use it in Mr Cooper’s smelly golden retriever ears!
Right now, they have a promo code that gets you $40 off a starter kit too! Just use the code CLEANSAFE40.
Better Air Probiotic Machine
Coronavirus types can survive on surfaces and objects for days and can overwhelm your immune system. BetterAir not only supports your immunity but has been proven to eliminate pathogens similar to Coronavirus on surfaces within hours.
Only 20% of indoor pollutants are in the air. Conventional air purifiers only attack them in the air. Betterair® eliminates them on surfaces as well. According to the CDC, 80% of all germs are on surfaces where viruses and pathogens breed. Betterair® reaches them even deep inside pillows, mattress, carpets and keyboards. (Source)
My Better Air is ALWAYS hard at work in my office and I recommend using it after your house has been sanitized. Green Home Solutions is my favorite mold remediation company and they carry them. If you are interested in purchasing one, you can contact them at this email address.
