Homemade Hand Sanitizer

Homemade Hand Sanitizer

Do you have any idea how easy it is to make your own Hand Sanitizer??  
It's WAY easy!  

I can't wait to tell you how :)

Supplies:
 Aloe Vera Gel
Rubbing Alcohol
  Travel Bottles to put your Hand Sanitizer in

By the way, I got all these supplies at the Dollar Tree!


So all you do is mix equal parts Aloe and Alcohol to make the sanitizer.  

 That's It!  Seriously..so easy right?

Now you can get creative here too folks..and here's how..

Essential Oils...add your favorite scent to your Hand Sanitizer
Lemon, Orange, Tea Tree Oil...or Lavender are just a few suggestions


I made mine with Lavender because it's the only oil I had, 
but I would love to try Tea Tree Oil.

The bottle on the left I added Lavender Oil and Dried Lavender,
The Pump on the right just had the Lavender Oil in it.

Now the reason I like making it myself is..we go through A LOT of Sanitizer...
And you will never guess what we have....
Yup..we really have a wall mounted Hand Sanitizer thingy in our bathroom..
Don't judge me! LOL..it comes in handy when you have kids :)

Enjoy!

  1. Actually, I wasn't judging. I was thinking how much of a genius that idea is. I am so hitting up my husband for the dispenser in our bathroom too.

  4. I purchased the containers at my local Dollar Store..great price if you ask me :) However, i'm sure you could find similar style containers in the travel section (soaps, toothpaste, etc) of any supermarket. Have a great day :)

  6. Does the aloe gel have to be 100% pure? I can't seem to find 100% anywhere? I found 99% and alcohol free witch hazel ...but OMG it cost way to much! Cheaper to buy the sanitizer already ready to go ..yah know?

  8. Oh and I did read, when using essential oils to never put in plastic containers cause the oils pull out toxins in the plastic? Do u think the plastic is ok for just the aloe and alcohol mix?
