Review: By Nieves Cloud of Protection

With a name like "Cloud of Protection," there is something undeniably alluring about this unique, handmade product from By Nieves. But what, exactly, does it do? According to the bottle, it "contains essential oils that fight airborne bacteria & viruses, traditionally used to clear negativity and cleanse the space." It also doubles as a hand sanitizer. Does this product live up to its claims?

  • Gentle formula
  • Multi-tasking product
  • Sanitizes hands easily
  • Freshens a room
  • Handmade
  • Limited retail availability
I was unable to test the protection against airborne viruses and bacteria, as I haven't been sick for a long time and didn't bring this out and about with me. However, I tested this product as a hand sanitizer and room freshener. As a sanitizer, it works similar to most other spray sanitizers. I found the cedar/rose scent to stick around longer than other scents in sanitizers, probably since the scent is from essential oils. The oils definitely scented the room, although the effect was relatively short in duration. As a psychological "cloud of protection," you'll have to be the judge. The formula itself seems quite mild, rating the lowest (a 0) on EWG's Skin Deep scale. If you'd like to buy someone a unique gift or are looking for a fun homemade product to carry on the go, this Cloud of Protection just might fit the bill.
