How to Get Rid of Germs With Essential Oils

      I've been watching a channel called Veria on Dish Network channel 218 and there is a show called "Everybody Nose" hosted by Noelle Katai.  Noelle is a certified Aromatherapist from the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy in San Rafael California and a member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA).  She has been practicing aromatherapy for over 15 years.  Here is a link to her website:  I'm going to recap a show where she discussed making a blend of essential oils for naturally fighting germs.  I've discussed earlier on one of my posts how many of the anti bacterial products have ingredients that are killing not only the bad germs but also some good germs we need to stay healthy.  So when I saw this particular show it captured my interest.  I still believe it is good to be able to fight off bad germs, but I want to stay healthy in the process.
     In this episode Noelle was discussing how to get rid of office germs.  The first ingredient she used for her Germ Control Blend was Pine Oil, it's a powerful anti bacterial, anti fungal essential oil.  Next, she used Lemon Oil which is also a disinfectant and an anti viral, anti bacterial oil.  Last, she used Eucalyptus Radiata Oil which is the most mild and sweet smelling strong anti viral oil.  In an essential oil spray mix bottle she added 5 drops of the Pine Oil, 10 drops of the Lemon Oil and 10 drops of the Eucalyptus Radiata Oil.  She then added distilled water mixed with 50% white vinegar to fill the bottle.  She discussed that the white vinegar by itself is a natural disinfectant which is easy on the skin and easy on most surfaces.  However, she also mentioned you can leave out the white vinegar if you like and just use distilled water to fill the rest of the bottle.  Once this is done you want to shake the bottle.  You can then use it to spray your keyboard, phone, desk and even just spray in the air to refresh your space.  Noelle also explained that Lemon Oil had been used in World War II to disinfect hospitals. This is a natural way to kill not only office germs but germs in your home with essential oils.
