This four thieves (or just plain ‘thieves’) makes an excellent homemade hand sanitizer! Its inexpensive to make and easy to bring along with you everywhere, like to the grocery store (for the shopping carts), the gym, public restrooms, etc. Or spray on your hands after touching other surfaces many people commonly use like banisters, hand rails, pens, handles, etc. That way you may be able to help keep your family from getting sick this cold and flu season!
Here is a quote from study to prove its effectiveness: “Studies conducted at Weber State University (Ogden, UT) during 1997 showed the antibacterial effectiveness of the Thieves blend against airborne microorganisms. One study showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing for 12 minutes. After 20 minutes of diffusing, the kill-rate jumped to 99.3 percent. Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.6 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion.”
