DIY Hand Sanitizer

One of the most difficult things to get your hands on (no pun intended!) during the COVID-19 crisis is hand sanitizer. And while nothing works as well as a good old-fashioned hand washing, here’s a recipe to make your own sanitizer at home.

3 ingredients.

5 minutes.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/2 cup Isopropyl alcohol (99 percent)
  • 1/2 cup Aloe vera gel (to avoid dry skin)
  • 10-15 drops Essential oils of your choice.

My fave essential oils? Glad you asked!

  • Tea tree oil and/or cinnamon oil for their antibacterial properties.
  • Ravintsara, peppermint, eucalyptus Radiata, wintergreen, lemon, and/or rosemary are all great for the respiratory system, for fighting colds and flu in general, and super immune-boosters.

DIRECTIONS
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until gel is formed.
  • Pour into squeeze, spray or pump bottles and label.

Be safe!
