NATURAL GRAIN ALCOHOL
This is naturally derived Ethanol produced via fermentation of sugars in grain prior to repeated distillation. The water in the alcohol opens up bacterial pores, allowing alcohol to infiltrate the bacterial cells and kill them which gives this disinfectant quality to alcohol. It is a solvent, meaning it dissolves dirt and oil and is fast drying. Alcohol is rapidly bactericidal (bacteria-killing), fungicidal, and virucidal. It can be a great stain treatment on certain fabrics, removing difficult stains like ink, grass, grease, or sap.
Water distillation removes waterborne biological contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, organic and inorganic chemicals, heavy metals, volatile gases, cysts, and other contaminants. Distilled water contains virtually no solids, minerals or trace elements which therefore prevents residue and watermarks from being left on skin or surfaces.
A clear, odorless liquid, derived from the oils of plants. It is a natural solvent, and it is antimicrobial and antiviral which makes it good for cleaning and stain removal. It has a pH level that closely matches that of the skin, which makes it gentle. Used topically, Vegetable Glycerin attracts and locks moisture into the skin, thereby softening, smoothing, and soothing the complexion.
Used medicinally, Vegetable Glycerine cools, soothes, and facilitates the healing of skin discomforts and conditions, such as scratches, cuts, blemishes, burns, itching, hives, rashes, sores, eczema, psoriasis, and other ailments that are characterized by dryness, itchiness, or inflammation. It creates a protective barrier on the skin to guard against environmental contaminants, destructive bacteria, and pollutants.
ORGANIC LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL
Lavender is one of the most commonly cultivated plants in the world because of the fragrant aroma, vast healing uses, cleansing abilities, and insect repellent properties. The name Lavender is believed to be derived from the Latin word “lavare,” meaning “to wash.”
Lavender Essential oil has shown antiviral and antibacterial activity against common viruses and strains of bacteria. Researchers have found that this antimicrobial activity is a result of the synergistic action of major and minor components of the essential oil. Linalool and linalyl acetate have been detected as the primary powerful antimicrobial agents in this oil. Some other compounds of this oil such as limonene, α-pinene, and β-pinene have antibacterial activity against different human pathogenic bacteria.
When used in aromatherapy, Lavender is a mild sedative and is reputed to reduce stress by relaxing the brain waves, which is also said to reduce cortisol levels that contribute to the stress hormone. Since cortisol leads to lower immunity, Lavender would accordingly support the immune system by helping relieve feelings of stress that can weaken health. Several studies have tested Lavender's anxiety-reducing effects in specific populations. For example, a study published in Physiology & Behavior in 2005 focused on 200 people awaiting dental treatment and found that breathing in the scent of lavender both lessened anxiety and improved mood. Several studies have also shown Lavender essential oil may help promote sleep and fight insomnia.
Lavender has also been used for hundreds of years as a powerful repellent. Apart from mosquitoes and ticks, Lavender often deters spiders, ants, and fleas. The essential oil and plant part of Lavender, which contains the linalool, produces a strong odor that is pleasant to humans and detestable to mosquitos. This is primarily because it overloads their sensitive olfactory organs, much in the same manner as DEET
Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea tree oil is an essential oil obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a plant native to Australia.
Tea tree oil contains constituents called terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant constituent in this oil and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity.
