Support for the Efficacy of Bandit's Blend

One of my best selling products, Bandit's Blend, is based on a medieval formula which thieves used to avoid catching the plague (literally) while robbing dead bodies. In the Hamilton Spectator, Sept. 11, 2009, an article was published citing that cinnamon oil does indeed have antiseptic properties! A pediatrician quoted in the article recommends using a blend of cinnamon, lemon and eucalyptus (which is, of course, in Bandit's) to use as a hand sanitizer!
I suggest using Bandit's to disinfect one's hands, or hard surfaces. My favorite way of using Bandit's, however, is for reducing the symptoms of a cold or flu, and hopefully, shortening the length of the illness. To do this, bring a bowl of water to steaming (using the microwave,) spritz in a few sprays of Bandit's, cover your head with a towel, and very carefully lower your head until you can breathe in the steam comfortably. Steam is hot! Be careful!! Ten minutes of this as often as you can during a cold or flu will help relieve nasal congestion. Or, you can use a diffuser with Bandit's spritzed into it to help reduce airborne virus in a room. Great if you have a sick person!
Bandit's retails for $18 (tax incl.) for 30 ml.
