Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer

Tired of spending money on hand sanitizer? Make your own!

Hand Sanitizer 4b

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 15 minutes or less

Here’s How:

What You Need:

2/3 cup Isopropyl alcohol 91%

1/3 cup aloe vera gel
Essential oil in your choice of fragrance (optional)
A bowl and spoon
An empty container

Mix the aloe vera and Isopropyl alcohol together until well blended.

Add 8-10 drops of essential oil to the mixture for fragrance (if desired), and stir well.

Pour the finished hand sanitizer into an empty container and seal.

Tips:

Many essential oils like tea tree oil and lavender have antibacterial properties. Use one of these to boost the germ-zapping power of your hand sanitizer.

Save the bottles from store-bought hand sanitizer, and refill them again and again.

A little goes a long way with this recipe. Once applied, just rub your hands together until the moisture evaporates and the stickiness vanishes.
