In this video I show how to put together an anti-viral scouring powder...similar to Comet cleanser. It works the same as the stuff you get from the store, but all-in-all cheaper, and here we can concoct our own healthy, medicinal version. Due to the current international outbreak and concern of the Coronavirus I thought I'd share this recipe I leaned from Clinical Herbalist, Heather Nic an Fhleisdeir (The Village Herbalist see link below).

Here is the recipe:

  • 3 Parts Borax (sodium tetraborate)
  • 1 Part Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)
  • 1/2 Part Salt
  • 1t Vodka or Isopropyl Alchohol
  • 1t Juniper essential oil
  • 1t Rosemary essential oil (anti-viral component)
  • Food coloring (optional)

A small list of anti-viral essential-oils:

  1. Bergamot oil is effective against flu viruses as a vapor after just 10 minutes of exposure.
  2. Eucalyptus oil shows anti-viral activity as a vapor.
  3. Red thyme oil is effective against flu viruses as a liquid phase.
  4. Cinnamon leaf oil also shows antiviral activity as a liquid.
  5. Tea tree oil is effective against the flu virus within 5 to 10 minutes of exposure, as found in another study.
  6. Lemon balm is also shown to prevent the avian influenza (bird flu) virus from reproducing.

There are many more effective anti-viral essential oils, please do your research to find the one(s) that will work for you.
