I hate to say it but I think we are going to have to refer to 2020 as the year of the germ. Obviously, the COVID 19 outbreak has left all of us wishing this year would end and the Coronavirus would exit with it. Unfortunately, we still have a few weeks left in 2020. Seven, to be exact so what to do to shield ourselves from more germs.

There is no doubt in my mind that social distancing and mask wearing is a must. Between COVID and all the other late fall early winter germs that will be heading our way over the next few month, I can't think of a better time then now to mask up. I realize that I am sounding like a germaphobe but who isn't these days.

Recently, I got a new work space and I got thinking if there was a way to make it more pleasant while also adding medicinal flair. I am a big believer in peppermint oil as a room diffuser but these days call for more drastic action so I order myself some fresh eucalyptus. The helpful people at the Flower Barn in Poughkeepsie ordered me this amazing bouquet which now has my office smelling fresh and hopefully warding a germ or two.

The links below are very helpful if you want to find out more about the benefits of Peppermint and Eucalyptus. Both are perfect for the winter air in your house.
