WHAT BRINGS A SMILE TO YOU
Hello my followers, This morning Dan and I left the house early, for we had to go to deliver our medical records to our new functional medicine doctor here in Virginia. The earliest they can get us in is May and June.
Also; went to get some Vodka, so I can make some hand sanitizer, shower cleaner, and deodorant. Since everyone is on the rise of coronavirus, I saw this organic homemade hand sanitizer, which will help from spreading any virus. How to Make a Natural Hand Sanitizer Using 3 Simple Ingredients Vodka, aloe gel, and essential oils Plain vodka (a cheap brand is fine!) Aloe vera gel Lavender essential oil Tea tree essential oil
Other essential oils of your choice. Lavender and peppermint also make a great combo, if the scent of tea tree oil is too strong. Small 1-2 oz bottle. Both toxin-free plastic squeeze bottles or plastic or glass spray bottles work well. The hand sanitizer mixture is thin enough to be sprayed, though it will come out in more of a stream Fill your bottle 1/4 to 1/3 of the way full with vodka. Add 10 to 15 drops each of tea tree essential oil and lavender essential oil. These two essential oils have natural anti-bacterial properties, and together they smell great, making them an ideal combo. Fill your bottle the rest of the way with aloe vera gel and shake well. Toss it in your bag or purse and use as needed! Remember, hand washing with regular soap and water is always your best bet for killing germs, but a natural, alcohol-based hand sanitizer like this is your next best bet. With all the stress that is going around on social media regarding the virus, we need more meditation to lower the stress. Our immune systems need to stay strong.

And you can practice meditation wherever you are — whether you're out for a walk, riding the bus, waiting at the doctor's office or even in the middle of a difficult business meeting.Understanding meditation
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. Meditation originally was meant to help deepen understanding of the sacred and mystical forces of life. These days, meditation is commonly used for relaxation and stress reduction. Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Meditation produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. This process results in enhanced physical and emotional well-being.Benefits of meditation

Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and can even improve certain medical conditions.
