Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe

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/
