Natural Ways to Prevent Germs

Proper hygiene is essential to the prevention of viruses and pathogens but other than washing your hands how can you keep germs away? Below is a great is list of natural ways you can disinfect and avoid germs!

1-Use a Diffuser!

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.

2- Keep germs out!

Remove your shoes before entering your house and don’t wear clothes you’ve worn in dirty public places in your home.

3- Wipe down surfaces!

It is important to clean doorknobs, countertops, sink and shower handles frequently, as germs can linger on surfaces for long periods of time. You can wipe down these surfaces with natural disinfectants such as a mixture of melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil, lemon essential oil and witch hazel.

4- 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.

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. Also, wash your hands.
