Today I want to talk about hand washing.
We are living in an age of excessive hand washing. All of a sudden we are being encouraged to wash our hands for 20 or 30 seconds multiple times a day… Also, many people use harsh cleaning products such as Lysol and Clorox to kill viruses on all surfaces. For many of us, it can be an issue because our skin barrier can't really handle this much washing!
The first one has to do with pH and the second one has to do with the ingredients that are in the soaps and cleaners that actually do the cleansing.
Best hydrosol options:
- Lemon balm
On my web site here you can find a few options for natural bar soaps made by our partners Pacha soap company.
For moisturizing your hands, I recommend thicker creams and balms with plant-based oils and butters. You can find them here. All of these products are among our March Specials and 15% off!

I'd like to extend peace and love during this time of global uncertainty and sudden changes to our daily lives. We all know change can be difficult, particularly when it feels abrupt and imposed beyond our will.
However, we must remember that during this time, we are not alone and there is beauty to be found in what is our new normal! We can continue to do the familiar in our routine and as we adjust and accept a new rhythm in life.
I have found solace in the pieces of familiarity in my daily routine: morning tea, prayer, bouncing on my mini-trampoline, near-infrared light therapy, yoga stretching, walking in the park, taking an infrared sauna and my skincare routine, of course.
Continuing or adding acts of self-care to our daily lives will help normalize and even grow in unprecedented times!
Love and blessings,
