DIY Hand Sanitizer
This concoction is a definite keeper!! It's based off of the oils that make up Thieves/OnGuard - which contains super powerful antibiotic, viral, fungal, etc. properties yet, once mixed with aloe vera gel, is gentle enough for little hands and it isn't laden with any alcohols.
Love this stuff!
This recipe creates an all natural liquid, spray-on, hand sanitizer. I may play with this recipe some and see if I can create a thicker version similar to purell. Maybe exclude the water and use only aloe gel? ... we'll see.
What you'll need:
3 oz filtered water
1 tsp aloe vera gel
10 drops cinnamon essential oil
10 drops clove essential oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
20 drops lemon / orange essential oil
Mix ingredients in a 4 oz. spray dispenser and shake gently.
Mist onto hands - massaging for 30 seconds.
