Healthy Hand Sanitizer

DIY Healthy Hand Sanitizer - Aloe Vera Based – Organic – Non-Toxic (By WhippedGreenGirl.com)

Finding a healthy hand sanitizer has become a real challenge for me. I’ve been forced to use the generic “hand sanitizers” made by major companies at work. Every time I goop on that clear jelly, I get an eczema break-out a day later… It’s harsh, toxic, and filled with perfumes.

I get the need for hand sanitizers, especially during flu season, but on the flip-side I’m also a health-nut and won’t just goop anything on my skin. Coming-up with my own healthy hand sanitizer recipe only made sense, so I put my aromatherapy skills to work.

I’ll share my entire recipe below, it’s quick/simple and you don’t have to be a chemist! You’ll be able to spay this stuff on guilt-free, all day and night. It’s aloe vera based with some witch hazel love. Three essential oils that won’t break your bank (tea tree, thyme, and peppermint) and you have yourself a DIY healthy hand sanitizer.

I know pictures make life easier, so I’ll lay-out ever step for your eyes too.

RECIPE:

Supplies:

  • Glass bowl for mixing (anything but alumin bowls, they react negatively with essential oils…)
  • Mixing spoon
  • Amber glass spray bottles (I buy mine from NewDirectionsAromatics)
  • (optional) A large liquid syringe for transferring liquid to bottles – makes life easier…

DIRECTIONS:

Step 1: Get supplies, ingredients, and bottles ready.

Step 2: Pour aloe vera gel into bowl (sometimes can be a little lumpy- stir it and break down as many lumps as you can – some aloe vera gel can be really gooey and lumpy…)

Step 3: Pour witch hazel into bowl and mix into aloe vera gel for a few minute… The goal is to break down every last aloe vera gel lump. You can’t have lumps in your final product; it must be pure liquid or it won’t spray out of the spray bottle.

Step 4: Add vitamin-e oil and vegetable glycerin, mix well.

Since my bottles have these tiny little holes, pouring is a no go. My solution was to order a liquid tranferring syringe on Ebay.com for a few bucks. Very worth it, makes the job way easier!
