Today I’m sharing a super quick and easy DIY hand sanitizer recipe. While I prefer washing my hands if I can, that’s not always an option, so hand sanitizer is definitely one of my handbag essentials.
For this recipe, you will need:
- Real Aloe Gelly
- Witch Hazel
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- 1 ounce glass amber spray bottle
Part of what makes this recipe super easy is that there is no formal measuring – which means less things to clean up! Everything goes straight into the glass amber bottle.
Fill the amber bottle up about 1/4 of the way with the aloe gelly, and then fill to the top with witch hazel, making sure to leave room to add the spray nozzle. Next, add 4 drops of tea tree oil and 2 drops of lavender. (Note: This is a kid and pregnancy-safe dilution. If that’s not a concern for you, feel free to double the amount of essential oil drops if you prefer a stronger dilution.) Put the spray nozzle back on the bottle, and give a good shake to incorporate all the ingredients together.
That’s it! A super simple DIY hand sanitizer perfect for taking on-the-go. Give the bottle a quick shake prior to each use (just for good measure), and you’re good to go! This recipe contains ingredients that I already keep in my home anyway, so it’s super easy to whip it up in a pinch.
