Hand Sanitizer – Day 31 – 31 Days of DIY Cleaners


If you love the idea of hand sanitizer but want to make your own, try this gentle and moisturizing (and great smelling) solution.  Store in a squeeze bottle and keep in your purse, car, diaper bag or wherever you think you’ll need it!

  • 1/2 cup aloe vera gel (if you can get pure —not green—, that’s the best)
  • 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol 
  • 1 tablespoon nourishing oil (vitamin e, jojoba, sweet almond)
  • 15 drops of your favourite essential oils (lavender, tea tree, vanilla, thyme, rosemary, lemon, peppermint, etc.) 

Mix the solution together in a clean squeeze bottle and adjust the amount of rubbing alcohol to achieve your desired consistency.  Shake well and use as required!
