Zapp It: The Natural & Organic Germ-Fighting Handwash

At a time when handwashing and hygiene are of the utmost importance, our Zapp Handwash is a powerful germ-fighting blend of essential oils, which can be used as a handwash as well as used to wipe down surfaces and floors.

Made from Ti-Tree, Lemongrass and Pine – mixed together these three oils provide a strong defence against germs thanks to their anti-viral, anti-bacterial and antiseptic qualities. And if you should get ill, they also provide medicinal benefits as well, including…

Ti Tree – this totally unique oil is the essential oil for any germ-fighting kit thanks to its antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic AND antibacterial qualities! Renowned for its woody, medicinal aroma, Ti Tree has also been a key ingredient in helping to stimulate the production of white blood corpuscles giving it the capacity to fight many conditions from colds to cystitis.

Lemongrass – with its distinctly earthy aroma, lemongrass is a great strengthener for your immunity and has been used in Indian medicine for centuries to help fight infectious diseases and fevers.  The properties have also proven to sedate the central nervous system, so are great for stress and exhaustion (but must not be used direct on the skin).

Pine – is already a powerful disinfectant and used in many household cleaning products thanks to its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, it is also an excellent antiseptic that helps with bronchial conditions and flu. Strongly refreshing and with a sharp and invigorating smell, Pine also helps fight fatigue and feelings of weakness.

The Zapp Handwash is available in 250ml for £7. Delivery is free within Lymington or Postage & Packaging can be arranged for an extra charge.

How to fight off the flu with our immune boosting blend

Traditionally one of the coldest months of the year, February is the month where most of us will be trying to fight off the coughs, colds and other lurgies.

Our handmade essential oil blend from The Massage House is punch-packed with immune boosting ingredients that will refresh, uplift and restore whilst also kicking those bugs into touch, including:

Lemon – historically known for being a ‘cure-all’ treatment for everything from poisoning to typhoid and scurvy, lemon is used as a sharp, fresh and strong antiseptic. Largely misunderstood as an acid, it is actually an alkaline and therefore a huge benefit to the digestive system and the liver.  Aside from using it in our blend, you can also cleanse your system by drinking a squeeze of lemon juice in hot water to flush and boost your system.

Lemongrass – with its distinctly earthy aroma, lemongrass is a great strengthener for your immunity and has been used in Indian medicine for centuries to help fight infectious diseases and fevers.  The properties have also proven to sedate the central nervous system, so are great for stress and exhaustion. It increases circulation and helps to eliminate lactic acid, which helps to reduce cellulite and acts as a skin and muscle tightener (but must not be used direct on the skin).

Peppermint – is another essential oil with an ancient history as a detoxicant. Famous for cleansing the stomach and clearing nausea and headaches, it is highly beneficial and powerful so best used in moderation. It has fabulous cooling properties for reviving tired feet and legs, and it certainly takes the sting out of sunburn.

Ti Tree – a totally unique oil as it is antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic AND antibacterial! Renown for its woody, medicinal aroma, Ti Tree has been a key ingredient in the Aboriginal people’s first aid kit since the start of human existence, by helping to stimulate the production of white blood corpuscles giving it the capacity to fight many conditions from colds to cystitis.

ginger essential oil

Ginger – is spicy and instantly warming, so a great aid for chills and fevers, plus its cleansing antiseptic and pain relieving benefits help to stimulate your circulation system, clear cholesterol and purify the blood.

The February Blend is available as a Massage Oil (£10 for50ml) and Room Diffuser (£15 for 100ml). To shop online click here or select this blend at your next Massage House treatment.
