I have read with great interest about the Swine Flu (H1N1) now hitting Mexico, NYC, Latin America and the Southwest US.
I am in one of the states affected. Texas.

I have already started Emergency Procedures here at the house:
I bought several vials of Lavender Oil at the local health food store, also a large bag of lavender flowers to make my own lavender oil. The blossoms are currently in a jar (old pickle jar, scaled out and clean) covered with almond oil, tightly capped and inverted out in the sunshine on the picnic table. I will do this for a week so all the essence of the lavender flowers gets into the oil. (Almond oil is an excellent carrier oil) I will keep that oil in reserve as I make it extremely strong.

The purchased lavender oil I use in a disinfecting spray. All bed linens, furniture, even the air is sprayed daily. Frequently, I walk through the house spraying the air. I spray down the bathroom, the door knobs, any surface that is frequently touched or handled.
Am I being paranoid?
Maybe a touch...but even the CDC has stated that this version of the Swine Flu could be the *pandemic* variety they have been dreading.
I also have broken out the face masks and latex gloves from my first aid kit...just in case.
I have 3 gallons of bleach, and Lysol as cleansing agents. All floors will be mopped with bleach in hot water (1 cup bleach to 3 gallons water). Before bed, all bathrooms will be wiped down with Lysol.

I urge anyone that reads this to get sickroom type supplies, plus cleansing/disinfecting agents.

My disinfecting Spray Recipe:
One cup rubbing alcohol
One cup water (I use distilled)
1 to 2 ounces Lavender Oil

I do hope that this is NOT the pandemic that the CDC and the World Health Org. is dreading, but I am being careful.

Put all in misting type bottle (I use an old Febreeze bottle)
Shake well before using.


  1. I mix lavender, lime, and lemon. Not only is everything killed off, but the house smells GREAT. Do you have any silver products? I am a big fan of Nature's Sunshine "Silver Shield" gel. It fixes burns, cuts, all sorts of infected goo, yeast infections, allergic reactions, you name it. Spraying colloidal silver will do it too.

  2. I have never tried colloidal silver, but I expect I am going to pick some up as a precaution from the local health food store on Monday!
    The new flu is spreading quickly and I suspect that any chance of containment is long gone.Once one person with the flu got on an went global.

  3. Hopefully it won't come to that, but there's no harm in being prepared for the eventuality that it does become a problem. I got a kick out of a news report this morning that said the Indian govt is advising travellers from that country not to go to Canada. Their water probably has far worse things in it than swine flu, LOL!!!


Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
