MamaSuds Germs Away Essential Oil blend of clove, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils has history/legend behind it. The legend is: germs away
“The usual story declares that a group of thieves during a European plague outbreak were robbing the dead or the sick. When they were caught, they offered to exchange their secret recipe, which had allowed them to commit the robberies without catching the disease, in exchange for leniency. Another version says that the thieves had already been caught before the outbreak and their sentence had been to bury dead plague victims; to survive this punishment, they created the vinegar. The city in which this happened is usually said to be Marseille or Toulouse, and the time period can be given as anywhere between the 14th and 18th century depending on the storyteller.” (Wikipedia)

How can you use this Germ Buster? germs away
- diffuse into the air (here is a link to the diffuser I sell – I have bought many in 7 years and this is by far the best and most durable)
- dilute with a carrier oil (like grapeseed or safflower) and slather on your feet, put on socks. I do this a lot in the winter months to my school-aged daughter.
- dilute and slather on anywhere you feel ‘something’ coming on. Feel a tickle in your throat? Put it all over your neck. Be careful to not get it in your eyes.
- put 5-10 drops in an all-purpose spray bottle with about 1-2 ounces of MamaSuds Castile Soap and fill with water. I used this a lot in my classroom when I was a middle school teacher and the kids would always tell me my room smelled like cookies or Christmas. Better than smelling like bleach cleaner! I use it as my cleaner in my home.
A word to the wise, if you ever feel like an oil is burning your skin the worst possible thing is to put water on it. The best thing is to put more carrier oil on and wipe it off with a dry cloth. I once caught my daughter with a bottle of cinnamon and she put her finger in her eye and wailed…. I ran her to the kitchen and poured olive oil on her eye and wiped it off. It instantly took the burn away.
