Health is such an important part of your inner beauty. I just got over bronchitis, which put me in bed pretty much for a whole week. Coughing and hacking all over the place does not look pretty! It was a not-so-gentle reminder of how important it is to take care your body.
If you’re suffering from the flu or something similar to what I had, I highly recommend eating a piece of raw garlic. It stops the coughing instantly. It tastes nasty as heck, but you won’t be staying up all night coughing up a lung. Also, sucking on a lemon helps for a sore throat as well.
Every one of us probably knows someone who's been sick recently. I don't know exactly how to prevent the cold or flu except to take daily vitamins and exercise consistently to boost your immune system. That's what I've been told anyway.
I know that hand sanitizers are a big thing for people who are conscious of the spread of germs. I’m not a germaphobe and I generally don’t use any hand sanitizer. I’m fine with just washing my hands, however, there have been times when it wasn’t possible to wash my hands which made me wish I did have hand sanitizer handy.
My problem with most hand sanitizers are the chemicals that are put in them. Instead warding off the germs that get you sick, I think it’s these chemicals that actually make you sick. You put the hand sanitizer on your hand and then those chemicals are transferred to the food you eat - if you're eating something like a sandwich. Or you bite your fingernails...or lick your fingers after eating chicken...
Frais hand sanitizer until I found out that it contains natural non-toxic ingredients like ginger, tangerine, lemon myrtle, niaouli, orange, basil, grapefruit, and cardamom. Other ingredients include Australian-blended essential oils, and 66% high grade eco-friendly sugarcane alcohol.
My nose really picks up the scent of the ginger in Frais hand sanitizer. What I like most is that it leaves your hands feeling real clean and fresh. It doesn't have that residue that I feel with other sanitizers.
