Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe
February 3, 2014
Essential Oils Work Quickly!
Why Not Learn Something New Today?
When we began eliminating toxins in our home, Hand Sanitizer was the first homemade product that I put together. It is alcohol free, moisturizing, and antibacterial.
Here is the recipe:
1 Cup Aloe Vera Gel (with no alcohol or additives)
1-2 Teaspoons Witch Hazel
25 drops Essential Oil(s)
You can use any Essential Oils, but Melaleuca has the highest antibacterial properties, so I usually use 13 drops Melaleuca and then 12 drops of Peppermint for a fresh, clean scent.
Simply mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl, and then transfer to bottles using a medicine syringe or other similar utensil.
For more information on the antibacterial properties of Melaleuca, please see: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1360273/
