RECIPE: SO SIMPLE SANITIZER

Five years ago I posted this Hand Sanitizer recipe on an old blog and it is still a huge hit. Thought I would share here for those who haven’t seen it!

This recipe is, well, so simple! I’m about to head out of the house and want my family to do all they can to stay healthy. This So Simple Sanitizer is a great thing to keep on hand this time of the year. 

To make: Add 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel and 20 drops of OnGuard essential oil blend from doTERRA into a small spray bottle. Next fill the rest with water. Replace cap and shake, shake, shake! That’s it! Seriously. 

To use: Shake well and then apply 3-5 sprays on dry hands. Rub well.

Recipe: Lemon Hibiscus Kooler (Kool-Aid alternative!)

The sun is shining! Kids and moms alike are looking for an icy drink to quench their thirst. This recipe is a mom must-have! And so easy too! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 Hibiscus Tea bags (we like Bigelow Cranberry Hibiscus)
  • 5 drops DoTERRA Lemon Essential Oil
  • 40 drops liquid Stevia
  • Water
  • Ice

Begin by steeping tea bags in 2 cups hot water. I just boil water in a mason jar in my microwave for 2 minutes. Let tea steep for about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile add Lemon Essential Oil & Stevia to a pitcher half full of ice water. The Lemon EO gives another depth of flavor to the kooler and adds a healthy boost too!

After 2 minutes, remove tea bags from tea concentrate. I give them a quick dunk into my ice water so I can squeeze all the goodness out of them without getting burned!

Finally, pour concentrate into pitcher and you’re done! I told you it was easy! 😉

Serve to your sweaty eight-year-old and watch him SMILE! Tastes so delicious that he doesn’t even mind that this sweet drink is sugar-free, dye-free AND healthy! Mom win!
