I never thought about germs to the extent I do since becoming a mother. It's hard not to wonder who's been there when your child start licking the window on a plane or chewing on a book at the library. Then when it feels like our babies end up with with some ailment every time we leave the house, becoming a hermit is awfully tempting.
I know I can't protect my kids from everything, germs are everywhere, and we will get sick sometimes, but I can bring my own reinforcements! ;) We go lots of places, and my kids touch everything, so all the while, I am wiping, spraying and sanitizing where I can.
There are a few products we love to have on the go to help our immune systems stay strong and fight germs! I love the Thieves line from Young Living because the products are effective, clean, and safe for babies. They are infused the powerful, natural oils derived from plants, so no icky chemicals here! If my child is going to lick everything in sight, replacing germs with toxins isn't helping! These products do a great job, but don't leave the harsh chemicals behind or a strong smell.
In fact, almost everytime I whip out these little warriors, someone comments on how amazing they smell! If you've never smelled Thieves, its a natural cinnamon, clove, citrus blend that smells like Christmas. :)
I love using these wipes to wipe down any and every surface. I like come ahead of my children and wipe down restaurant tables, high chairs, plane seats and arm rests, and excersaucers my babies use in public places. As soon as they sit down their hands, faces, and tongues are all over everything!
*I don't use these on my little ones, just on surfaces around them! ;)
I like to use this the same as any disinfecting spray in areas we will be spending any time in. I keep it in an outer pocket of the diaper bag and whip it out before we sit down. Again with the airplane, I spray this on our row. Since it's not harsh smelling, it doesn't choke everyone around us. The thieves oil blend is powerful for cleansing the air and boosting our immune systems. So, it is just what Mama wants everyone breathing in as we sit where hundreds of different people have been all day.
Thieves Hand Purifier
I have always been somewhat terrified of using hand sanitizer with little ones. The Thieves hand purifier is a perfect solution that is not as harsh and free of harmful chemicals. We bring this everywhere we go!
We don't leave the house without these items in our bag because they are so effective, and it just gives me peace of mind to know I'm doing everything in my power to keep my littles healthy and safe! To learn more about Young Living and get these products, visit here, or just let me know!
