Stay strong and healthy when everyone else around you is sick👍🏻 and help spread a word to others on how to keep yourself up and running when others are down and weak. Some of the tricks I do may sound silly but from the experience it truly helps and prevents me and my loved ones from getting sick and that is what matters! Hopefully you will find some tips helpful to you as well.
1. Wash hands using birch tar soap – as often as possible. Birch tree soap kills bacteria very effectively from hands.
2. Cut onions – and put them on plates in every room of the house. It would kill the bacteria in the air.
3. Diffuser with lemon essential oil – in it and put it in a room where you are most often, it also kills the bacteria in the air.
4. Smelling minced garlic – will kill the bacteria in you nose. (Keep minced garlic in a small jar close to you and smell it often when someone around you is sick with the flu, or before going anywhere public).
5. Smelling birch tar oil – will also kill bacteria in your nose and prevent bacteria getting in your body through the nose for up to 8 hours. (Smell it when someone around you is sick with the flu, or before going anywhere public.)
6. Swabbing Carmex or Vaseline inside the nostrils – with a cotton swab will also get bacteria trapped in your nose and may prevent you from getting sick. (Swab when someone around you is sick with the flu, or before going anywhere public.)
*I like buying Carmex in a value pack of multiple tubes as shown on Amazon above, it’s cheeper and I can put it in multiple places at the house as well as my purse.
7. Take diluted oregano oil – under the tongue for about three times a day or so. (click to see how to dilute)
