Essential oils:

More often than not, I use tea tree oil every day. I mix a bottle 2 parts witch hazel, half part apple cider vinegar, and about 4-10 drops tea tree and spray it ALL OVER MY BODY after EVERY shower. Yes, I mean everywhere; feet, face, chest, back, etc...

Tea tree keeps me clean and feeling fresh all day long and I even use my spray instead of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

 

 

 

Exercises:
