How We Keep The Germs Away {Dr. Mom Series}

Happy Friday! I’m royally excited for the weekend. We don’t have a lot of plans, so I’m hoping to tackle some home projects that have been hanging over my head. Yay!

I’ve been meaning to tell y’all about my favorite way to keep nasty germs away. I’m not a big fan of anti-bacterial soap and run-of-the-mill hand sanitizers because of the toxic chemical ingredients in them. I’m not comfortable putting these products on my children’s hands since they put their hands in their mouths all. the. time.

I do want to say that I’m not *afraid* of germs. I think they are good because God designed our immune systems to function with the presence of germs. However, I don’t want to unnecessarily expose my family to icky stuff if I can help it.

I’m so thankful for Thieves Foaming Hand Soap and Thieves Hand Sanitizer. The flu season that we’ve come through was awful. I would like to think that because we use these products every day…as well as other natural immune boosters, we avoided the flu.

When we are out running errands, touching door handles, grocery carts, bathroom faucets, checkout pin-pads and gas pumps, I always have Thieves Hand Sanitizer in my bag. We use it oftentimes when we get back in the car from shopping. I love that stuff!

Call us weirdos, but we also have developed a routine when we get home from being out and about. We all head to the bathroom sink and wash our hands with Thieves Foaming Soap.

We’ve also been known to use thieves hand sanitizer on a public toilet seat. Ahem. You just do what you’ve gotta do. ;)

I can’t sing the praises of these products enough. They last forever, so the extra cost {as compared to cheap antibacterial soaps and sanitizers} is worth it. I also love that they are non-toxic and they are full of therapeutic grade essential oils that are good for boosting our immune systems!

The history of Thieves oil is incredibly intriguing. Young Living has an entire line of Thieves products, many of which I have tried and love. I will share more about them in later posts.

  1. I love learning about new things like this. I just recently converted the household over to organic toothpaste and deodorant. Next is shampoo and soap. I am trying to switch over to all natural with the things we use everyday.
