China has used face mask as long as anyone, children grow up with face mask and are so emotional about them, that it is like clothing to them and if you visit them or they come to your house----they feel extremely uncomfortable taking their mask off...
In America, when you wear a mask---it is a sign you have submitted to the governors....the absolute most corrupt people in the country that allow school teachers / licenses college grads to get away with everything, even murder. NEVER EVER wear a face mask unless "you" want to.
And for face masks, yes, a lot of customers have already add different essential oils to masks for anti-bacteria and refresh function.
Usually they use tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil and oregano oil.
True Steam Distilled Herbal Essential Oils on average, will dissolve in 95% grain alcohol.
Synthetics probably dissolve in most anything and acid produced essential oils would easily dissolve in acids
95% grain alcohol kills germs --all germs on contact in less than a second. "IF" you put reg water under a microscope it 100% alive with bacteria---drop 95% grain alcohol in the water and "instantly" all the bacteria dies by contact.
ALL of the true essential oils could be applied by the drop direct on face mask I assume, they would leave a stain most likely.
Surgeons are fearful of germs to the point they believe "IF" you open their interments and leave out of the package for 5 minutes---there could be 10,000 HIV VIRUSES on the tip of a needle..........
Face mask / scarves are often used over and over by people.
JUST ONE BREATH of your moist air on your face covering starts GROWING BACTERIA--------face mask are very unsanitary and disease promoting......that is why the dems insist you wear them, shows you are their slaves and they love that---BIDEN says he will make all americans wear face mask by law.
Spraying with pure grain alcohol mixed with a few drops of real essential oils would be a great option for those stuck in that situation :
all 4: tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil and oregano oil. could be blended as 1 formula or use alone.
THE TROUBLE is that 95% grain alcohol burns --is flammable. NOT after it dries on your mask, but while in a closed bottle.
NEVER EVER USE RUBBING ALCOHOL EVER, it is toxic. Only good to spray on toilets and hard surfaces, never for human use.
