Chai-like Immune Booster Latte Recipe with Essential Oils

Delicious and good for you. This recipe is sure to boost your immune system and indulge your senses at the same time.

Baby it’s cold outside! …But I feel warm and cozy on the inside, thanks to a cup of Chai-like Immune Booster latte. I say chai-like because there isn’t actually any chai in it. This concoction is made of essential oils and as such, you get the added benefit of boosting your immune system while savoring the sweet, spicy chai-like flavors.

This recipe* makes one small cup, but double or triple it to fit your favorite tea cup!

  • ¾  Cup Very warm milk (not boiling)
  • 1 T Honey (or sweetener of choice, but I prefer the flavor of honey)
  • 1 drop Protective** Essential Oil blend
  • 1 drop Lemon Essential Oil
  • 1 Good book (optional) 🙂

Clean Naturally with This Cheap and Easy Recipe

I have been on a quest to find a DIY natural, effective, safe, and cheap granite countertop cleaner that even my kids can use. I found tons of recipes and variations of recipes out there and put together my favorite conglomeration for an environmentally friendly granite cleaner recipe that will also clean many other surfaces in your home.

So, in my research I found out that stone surfaces do not do well with acidic cleaners (lemon juice, vinegar, etc). These ingredients can actually “etch” your countertops and traditional cleaning products like Windex can strip the sealant off your stone. There is always soap and water, or even just water, but this leaves your countertops looking streaky or dull.

So, what’s a girl to do besides buy the special granite cleaner at $7 a pop for a mere 12 ounces? Check out this inexpensive recipe for a clean, shiny, streak-free, granite countertop (and some):


Recipe

  • ¼ cup Rubbing Alcohol (70%)
  • 3 drops dishwashing liquid
    I recommend castile soap or an organic brand, but check the label for citric acid
  • 2 cups of water
  • 5 drops of lemon essential oil (optional)
    Lemon essential oil masks the alcohol smell and has great shining, cleansing, and purifying properties. Don’t worry, there is no citric acid in the essential oil, so I am not contradicting myself. Also, I only use pure essential oils.
  • Spray bottle
    I am not a big fan of plastic, so I recommend using glass

Place all the ingredients in the spray bottle, shake gently, and you are ready to go!

Here is what you can use this amazing cleanser for*:

  • granite countertops (of course)
  • mirrors
  • stainless steel
  • porcelain
  • fiberglass
  • plastic
  • laminate
  • cooktops
  • microwaves
  • doorknobs
  • toilet seats

I am sure the list can go on and on. Let us all know if you come up with other uses or tweaks for this recipe. Happy cleaning and be well! -Lynn & Jon
