Grape seed crush from Beeyoutiful:
Try the citrus solution to keeping your body and home healthy. Grapefruit Seed Crush, an extract made from the seeds and pulp of grapefruit, is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic for just about every healing, disinfecting, and cleaning need. It’s even safe and effective when taken internally — including babies and pregnant or nursing mommies. One great advantage of GSC over traditional antibiotic treatments is that “super bugs” don’t evolve to overpower this product as they do antibiotics. And Grapefruit Seed Crush doesn’t harm beneficial bacteria lining the intestines.
For personal hygiene, gargle with diluted GSC to help sore throats, mouth sores, and halitosis. Mix it with shampoo to treat eczema and dandruff, and spray a solution of GSC on athlete’s foot. Taken internally, Grapefruit Seed Crush fights parasites.
Around the house, instead of pouring on the usual, toxic cleaners and disinfectants, let the powerful anti-microbial action of Grapefruit Seed Crush keep your home clean and healthy. Mix up natural bathroom cleaners and mold killers, add it to your dishwater and laundry tub, or make anti-bacterial baby wipes for bottoms and public toilet seats. By creating your own health-friendly cleaners, you’ll save money, too.
There are practically limitless ways to put Grapefruit Seed Crush to work (see the long list below!), but for all uses, GSC should be diluted with water. Adding 3-6 drops to 6 oz. of water is generally a good proportion. GSC is non-toxic, so an extra drop here and there won’t hurt. Results are usually better, though, when Grapefruit Seed Crush is used frequently in a more diluted solution than less frequently in heavier concentrations. You’ll doubtless find your favorites as you try these ideas.
Sickroom — Spritz with a solution of GSC in water. Add it to a vaporizer or mop water.
Mouth and Gum Infections — Swish and gargle with water-diluted GSC. You can swallow it for internal benefit.
Sore throat – Gargle with diluted GSC and swallow. Many germs enter the body through the mouth, so stop them in their tracks. GSC kills strep throat germs and helps viral sore throats, too.
Candida Overgrowth — Drink a diluted GSC solution to kill yeast in your gut. Even babies with thrush (an oral yeast infection) can be helped by drinking a few ounces of water with a couple drops of GSC added. For female yeast infections, dilute and douche 12 hours apart for at least 3 days (grapefruit seed extract is considered by some to be even more effective than nystatin and other yeast-killing agents—and without the bad side effects of those drugs). For thorough treatment, some women drink GSC regularly for several months. Others stay on a maintenance dose for longer. And, of course, cutting down on sugar and refined foods will improve your chance of victory in the yeast war.
Baby wipes — Mix water, aloe vera gel, GSC, and any pleasant-smelling essential oil. Soak paper towels or small washcloths in the solution, and store them in a plastic container near the changing table. GSC kills painful yeast-related diaper rashes.
Skin and scalp cleaner – Add GSC to shampoo and regular liquid soaps, or dilute with water and chamomile tea or aloe gel for a facial scrub. It’s beneficial for dermatitis and acne. For warts and cysts, GSC can be applied undiluted (the only exception to the dilution rule) directly onto the affected area; cover with a bandage. With these applications, you can skip the antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers. They cause your body to become more resistant to antibiotics — which you might really need someday for a life-threatening emergency.
Diarrhea, food poisoning, stomach flu – Dilute and swallow GSC every few hours as needed. Be sure to take GSC on trips out of the country (use bottled water for diluting).
Poison ivy and poison oak — Symptoms improve and feel better quickly after an application of diluted GSC.
Parasite cleansing — Even folks in non-third world countries can have parasites that weaken their health thanks to imported foods, sushi, other popular raw foods, and household pets (dogs can transmit 65 known parasites to humans while cats carry about 40 contagious diseases that affect people). Drink a few ounces of GSC solution regularly, and enjoy your pets and sushi without worry.
Athlete’s foot, ringworm, and other skin and nail fungus problems. — Spray with a diluted solution.
General Purpose Uses:
Animals – Dogs, cats, birds, all livestock, and even fish can benefit from GSC for wound healing, parasite treatment, and in place of antibiotics. Cats will ingest sprayed-on GSC solution when they groom themselves. Clean your dog’s kennel and the cat’s litterbox with diluted GSC. Put a few drops in your fish tank and get rid of algae problems! It helps prevent fish diseases, too.
Drinking water – If you aren’t sure about the safety of water you have available and can’t boil or distill it, first let the particles settle (or filter them out), then treat with GSC. It tastes a little bitter, but you”ll know it’s keeping you safe from parasites and disease.
Toothbrushes – Keep family members from re-infecting themselves with germs left on their toothbrushes. Mix up a glass of GSC solution for each person to soak their toothbrush in between uses. The mixture will last for several days before needing replacement (a GSC-soaked brush should be rinsed before using it again).
Fruit and vegetable wash – Remove pesticides and parasites before eating. You can add GSC to a bowl or sink full of water, or you can make a spray. This is much cheaper than expensive food washes sold at the store and just as effective. You’ll find fruits and vegetables stay fresh longer, too.
Replace toxic cleaners and bleach — Make a spray bottle for cleaning your bathrooms and kitchens (don’t forget the cutting boards). It disinfects even better than rubbing alcohol or colloidal silver! GSC helps do away with mold problems. Add GSC to your laundry to disinfect and brighten clothes and bedding.
Public bathrooms — Combine a dab of baby shampoo with water and GSC, and soak paper towels in the solution to make your own wipes. Keep them fresh in a zippered plastic bag in your purse or diaper bag. Or carry a tiny spray bottle with the diluted mixture to spritz questionable surfaces.
Houseplants – If you have an aphid problem or scaly mold, dilute GSC with water and spray the tops and bottoms of leaves and stems. You can add cayenne or garlic juice for stubborn plant problems.
Sprouts — Treat the sprouts you grow with a diluted GSC mixture and spin them dry for a longer life in the fridge.
For home and body health, a Grapefruit Seed Crush solution is the solution!
Important: Always dilute Grapefruit Seed Crush before using, and never use any form of Grapefruit Seed Crush in your eyes.
