Coronavirus Safety Tips
What is Coronavirus?
Formally named COVID-19, Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases like MERS and SARS. A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
What do I do now?
In case of a city, state, or nationwide shut down, stock up on hygiene essentials for the whole family. It is very important to thoroughly kill and clean germs and outside contaminants with body wash, face wash, shampoo, and antibacterial essential oils.
Here are some of our recommendations to thoroughly cleanse any dirt, pollution, and bacteria from the outside:
Wash your body
Wild Aqua Foaming Body Wash thoroughly cleanses with an aquatic fragrance while nourishing skin with Shea Butter, Vitamin E, as well as Argan Oil. Vitamin E is known to act as a natural antioxidant which will also assist in reducing the amount of damage caused by excessive UV exposure.
Wash your hair
Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo And Coconut Oil Conditioner is our dynamic duo to detox, balance, and restore all hair types. It works for everyone in the family.
Stay away from public gatherings
For your health and safety, avoid large public gatherings commonly found at grocery stores and pharmacies. Take advantage of WOW Skin Science’s 35% discount by purchasing online. Essentials are shipped directly to your home without potential contact with at-risk people. You have more control over the sanitation and cleanliness of your home than in a public place.
Many states have moved schools online, asked employees to work from home and imposed bans on public gatherings. Listen to the authorities and trusted news sources like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to know what to do in your area.
How do I keep from getting sick?
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
If you haven't already, get vaccinated with the latest flu shot. Depending on your health provider, you can get vaccinated for free at some pharmacies if the doctor is fully booked.
In the meantime, the WOW Skin Science Immune Lift Essential Oil Blend of antiviral and antibacterial essential oils will purify your environment, kill germs and promote immunity.
Instead of hoarding masks, leave those to the professionals and ill that need protection. Wear disposable gloves in public places, make sure to thoroughly wash your hands as much as possible, and avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and face.
Relieve symptoms quickly
Before they get worse, fight any symptoms of cough, fever and runny nose with over the counter medicine or all-natural essential oils. If symptoms worsen, call your health provider to schedule an appointment and seek medical advice.
For at-home cold relief, try WOW Skin Science Cold Soother essential oil blend to soothe symptoms of a cold. This blend features seven 100% pure essential oils – Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Wintergreen Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil, Basil Essential Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil & Myrrh Essential Oil. In aromatherapy, each of these is recognized for its warmth inducing, chill busting and cold soothing qualities.
Clean everything, including your hands
As soon as you leave a public space, thoroughly wash your hands up to your elbows for 20 seconds. If you haven't already, sanitize any surfaces that have been touched and exposed like your phone, tables, counters, door handles, etc.
For a non-toxic cleaner, add a few drops of essential oils like rosemary, clove, and cinnamon into dish soap or laundry detergent to deep clean. For an all-purpose house cleaner, combine 30 drops of essential oils of your choice in a 16 oz. glass spray bottle, combining 1/4 cup white vinegar and 1 3/4 cups water. Be sure to add oils first and then the liquids to keep the bottle from overflowing.
All in all, keep your cool and think ahead to keep you and your loved ones safe. Panic buying does no one any good and can increase the risk of contracting viruses in crowded environments.
