From being without electricity, being without power, the vehicle accidents, roof leaks, days without sales, events cancelled, running out of groceries, worrying about friends and family away from us, busted pipes, and more.  Poor Texas; poor Boerne.

So now I'm deconstructing my hand cleansers! (our germ-fighting, antibacterial, moisturizing, sanitizer sprays) Ingredients: isopropyl alcohol, aloe vera liquid, vitamin E oil, lemon essential oil, doTERRA's OnGuard essential oils blend   ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL For our hand sanitizer, our recipe had to be formulated around 70% alcohol.  That's probably the only thing you want to have that much isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) in it.  😉  But what else can you do…
