How to Naturally Protect yourself from Corona Virus

According to the Center for Disease Control, there is currently no vaccine to prevent corona virus; however the best way to prevent yourself from catching this virus is to avoid exposure and to practice preemptive actions to prevent the spread of germs, viruses and bacteria. Below is a list of natural ways to protect yourself from Corona Virus.

1- Be vigilant in public places.

To stop any pandemic, the trick is to avoid exposure. When you are in public, be vigilant of using public items like water fountains, handrails and door knobs.

2- Wash your hands.

Proper hygiene is essential to the prevention of germs, virus and pathogens. It is important to wash your hands after touching any public surfaces and before you eat.

3- Don’t touch your face, eyes, mouth with unclean hands.

Germs can stay on your fingertips and hands hours after being exposed to certain viruses and pathogens. This is why it is important to avoid rubbing your eyes, nose and face without washing your hands first.

4- Use natural remedies.

Diffusing essential oils such as lemon and eucalyptus can actually sanitize the air and provide a natural, clean scent instead of using toxic chemical aerosol sprays. You can also utilize things such as Himalayan salt lamps to naturally detoxify the air in your home.

5- Don’t share personal items.

It is important to keep your personal items to yourself and not to share items such as hairbrushes, make-up items, and toiletries. It is also helpful if you remove your shoes before entering your house and not to wear clothes you’ve worn in dirty public places in your home.

Are you exposed to hidden toxins?

 

Your life is made up of many factors, some you can control and others you cannot. That is why it is so important to be mindful of the choices that you are making.  Are the choices you make every day improving your life or making it more difficult?

Some factors that you can control in your life are what you expose yourself to physically and environmentally. Are you unknowingly exposing yourself to toxins?

Environmental toxins and harsh chemicals can be hidden in products you use in your home. Do you know what ingredients your household cleaners, laundry detergents and air fresheners contain?  You may be alarmed to discover many of these products contain toxins that can cause endocrine disruption and predispose you to certain cancers. This is why it is important to replace these chemicals with safe, natural options. For example, traditional air fresheners can be detrimental to those with respiratory illnesses such as asthma, COPD and emphysema. These toxic products can be easily replaced with natural solutions such as a homemade aerosol spray containing natural ingredients such as lemon essential oil and witch hazel. You can also replace traditional laundry detergents and household cleaners with safe, organic options. Please see our recipe section for natural recipes to help you eliminate toxic exposure in your home.

It is also important to be aware of the chemical composition of products that go onto your body. Most lotions, make-up, shampoo, conditioner and soap contain ingredients which are not organic or natural. This is why White Naturals is proud to offer natural beauty products such as our African Black Soap which is 100% pure and proven to be a wonderful natural replacement for toxic traditional soaps.  Our entire line of beauty and skin care products are organic and do not contain cancer causing chemicals. We also have many recipes on our website which will teach you how to make natural beauty and skin care products so you can completely eliminate toxins in your beauty routine!

Aromatherapy for Beginners

Aromatherapy for Beginners

There are hundreds of essential oil options, blends and remedies for just about every ailment. A holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being. Essential oils used in aromatherapy can benefit your health in many ways! Below is a list of great aromatherapy options.

Using essential oils in a diffuser or wax burner is a great way to promote wellness and improve the air quality in your home, car or office. Diffused essential oils can be used to treat a wide variety of issues such as: reducing anxiety, creating focus or increasing libido just to name a few!  So, the first step to aromatherapy for health benefits is to purchase a quality essential oil diffuser.

There are multiple types of diffusers:  ultrasonic, nebulizing, heat and evaporative.

Ultrasonic diffusers work by emitting oil particles into the air when added to water.

Nebulizing diffusers are waterless yet they work by emitting particles of essential oils into the air.

Evaporative diffusers typically disperse the essential oils by using a fan mechanism.

Heat diffusers transfer essential oils into the air by using high temperatures.

Choosing the right diffuser for you is a personal choice depending on the types of oils you diffuse, for what benefit and also the environment you are diffusing in. For example, heat diffusers may not be the best choice if you live in a hot climate and struggle to keep the temperature in your home comfortable.

Once you have purchased a diffuser, it is also important to choose high quality, therapeutic grade oils. Discount and low-quality oils are typically filled with additives that can clog or harm your diffuser. Before you purchase any essential oils, be sure that it is a high-quality product that is pure.

There are many essential oil blends that can benefit your health.

Basic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Remedies

Eucalyptus, Spearmint and Peppermint are the top essential oils recommended to provide relief of allergies.

Lemon has antibacterial properties and when diffused, actually purifies the air. It is recommended for use in cold/flu season.

Lavender is indicated for relief of anxiety, depression and insomnia. When placed in a diffuser at bedtime or during times of stress it can induce a more relaxed state.

Jasmine and Ylang Ylang essential oils are noted for having a romantic effect and can naturally increase libido when diffused or applied topically.

Orange essential oil has been shown to have an energizing effect and can help promote alertness when diffused.

Lemongrass essential oil is loved by people but hated by bugs and is a natural insect repellent. It is great for use at outdoor events and can prevent mosquito and other bug bites.

Finding essential oil options, blends and remedies to naturally treat ailments is a great way to benefit your life. Be sure to find a holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist that can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being or contact our staff here at White Naturals!.
