If there is one thing we got to know this past year, it is that hand sanitizers dry out our hands and typically include chemical ingredients to kill the germs we don’t want. Naturally, there are brands that realized that with a bit of science and nature we can kill those germs and still be left with softer hands and better ingredients. PlaneAire® Hand Sanitizer kills 99.99% of most common germs–they’re made with the healing power of aloe vera and organic essential oils.
These plant-based hygiene products have a few scents to choose from so your hands can smell great, but it is the ingredients that are most impressive. They include a unique selection of premium, nourishing ingredients like moisturizing green tea extract, soothing aloe vera, hydrating glycerin and vibrant essential oils.
Even more impressive than the scents and ingredients is the fact that PlaneAire started in the air. The CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to kill Coronavirus. PlaneAire Hands contains 70% alcohol. PlaneAire is FDA approved and CDC compliant.
I love the scents and the gel-like texture that softly absorbs into my hands. It will not leak and always smells great. You can find PlaneAire, the responsibly sourced, Hand Sanitizers in gel, lotion or spray at PlaneAire.com or at Amazon.
If you have school-aged children they have had the longest break from the school building ever and learning for them drastically changed suddenly last spring. I know some school remained in-person, but here in Was. state and other areas schools have yet to open since March.
Kindergarteners as a virtual learner are heading to a classroom soon for the first time ever or as a secondary student trying to keep grades afloat in a change into independent learning before they were ready, going back will be an adjustment.
I found some books to help your child transition back to in-school learning. You will want to start reading now to open the discussion about going back, schedule changes and socializing again on the playground with new classmates. These books are great for older siblings to read to younger siblings so all ages are discussing the changes together.
One of my FAVORITE children’s book Authors’ write for A Kids Book About. If you have not seen these books I highly recommend all of their titles on many common and new topics for kids. For heading back into the classroom I recommend A Kids Book About Change. Buy on Amazon
This book is so fantastic! The Invisible String is most popularly known as a best book for loss and grief, it is a great book to have on hand if an unexpected loss does occur in your family. However, it also is a great read for separation anxiety as it touches on the same need to feel connection when apart no matter how ‘apart’ they are. This is great for the child heading off to school for the very first time. Buy on Amazon.
My Strong Mind: A Story About Developing Mental Strength is a great book for so many situations to have on hand. For back to school, your child will be eager to start the new change off with a more positive mindset. When anxieties and worries start it’s time to use that brain power to work through change and new situations. Buy on Amazon.
What Should Danny Do? School Day (The Power to Choose Series) brings problems forward. This is a fun read for kids that may have had to be out of structure as they have juggled at-home learning, working parents, siblings home all day. Now your child has to head back to class, sit still, make smart decisions around new kids and Teachers. This book is 7 stories in one and a great conversation book where your child and you can discuss ways Danny’s day should end given his situations he finds himself in. Buy on Amazon.
Many children have not been out and about as much or everyday and going back for many kids will still be while masked. If you have avoided public due to mask wearing anxiety with your child and now they may have to wear one back to school for a bit, this book is a must! Remember to Smile is a silly book that also introduces your child to many heroes and people that have to wear masks in their jobs and other situations making it less scary! Buy on Amazon.

Could you imagine if someone would have told you this time last year that there are books guiding our kids through a Pandemic Holiday? It would have sounded crazy. Here we are making changes to traditions, staying home more, schools in most are4a still not back in session and reading books to get us through a COVID Holidays.
Here are 2 books both available to download now or order.
Remember to Smile by Shannon MCDonals. This is can arrive by Christmas for most Amazon customers as I write this. It is also available as a digital copy right now. It is a silly yet comforting book about describing and illustrating all the different styles of masks, characters that wear them, when you can wear them, and ‘interesting’ ways to use them. I love the fun and colorful illustrations and the ease it brings for wearing a mask. Buy now on Amazon.
Santa in a Snow Globe by A. H. Edelman. This fun book is great as we realize our kids may find St. Nick behind glass in some cases, staying safe and doing his part to keep people safe. This book is a great keepsake for years to come even post-COVID. Download to read now or order t=for your yearly book collection! Available at Amazon and other book stores.
Never has there been a better time for Target to begin carrying such a necessity – Elyptol Natural Cleaning Wipes! In these COVID times a hand sanitizer lingering in the bottom of your purse or car console is not enough germ protection. This year will go down in history books beside other health crisis of the past and we have such great retail access to products that can literally become barriers.
When I clean surfaces I use sanitizing wipes + Sanitizing spray after I wipe down. I double-protect all touch surfaces often in my home. I still work at the school only partially open and my husband is in retail management so we leave the house to come home daily and making sure we clean often is very important.
These Elyptol Natural Cleaning Wipes are made for hard surfaces and are created with only 3 ingredients – Eucalyptol, Natural Ethonol (alcohol) and water. Safe your surfaces, your skin and the environment.
Use these wipes to clean stoves, toilets, countertops, desks, and bathtubs without leaving a streak on surfaces or residue on hands. They are made of soft non-woven cloth and infused with eucalyptus essential oil. Enhanced by the healing properties of eucalyptus oil combined with naturally sourced pure ethanol, Elyptol wipes are safe and gentle for all ages and skin types.
