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.


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.
