Five Easy to Make Hand Sanitizer Recipes

Recipe #1

Ingredients
  • 8 to 10 drops essential oil, such as lavender, clove, cinnamon, or peppermint
  • Spoon
  • Mixing bowl
  • Funnel
  • Plastic container  
  • 2/3 cup 99% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or 190-proof grain alcohol
  • 1/3 cup pure aloe vera gel (preferably without additives)
How to make
 
Into the bowl, add the alcohol and aloe vera gel. Pour the ingredients into the bowl and mix well using the spoon. The combination should be completely smooth.
  1. If you want a smoother solution to add another spoonful of aloe vera. 
  2. Or just apply another spoonful of alcohol to thin it out.
  3. Stir in the essential oil. Put it in one drop at a time, then mix as you go. Smell the mixture after about eight drops, to see if you like the smell. Stop right there if it seems solid enough. If you like a better smell, just add a few drops more. Lavender, clove, cinnamon, and peppermint essential oils have the added advantage of giving the mixture additional antiseptic properties.
  4. If you don't like those scents, use whatever fragrance you're loving is perfect. Both fit well with lemon, grapefruit, and passion fruit.
  5. Funnel the mixture into the receptacle. Place the funnel above the jar mouth and pour in the sanitizer for the side. Fill it up, then screw it onto the cap until ready to use it. A small squirt bottle works fine if you want to take the sanitizer with you all day long.
  6. Save the remaining sanitizer in a container with a tightly fitting lid, if you make too much for the bottle.

 

Recipe #2

Ingredients
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • 1 cup pure aloe vera gel (preferably without additives)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons witch hazel
  • 30 drops tea tree oil
  • 5 drops essential oil, such as lavender or peppermint
  • Funnel
  • Plastic container
How to make
  • Stir in aloe vera gel, tea tree oil, and witch hazel. To thicken it, add another spoonful of aloe vera if the mixture seems too thin. If it is too thick, add another layer of witch hazel
  • Mix the essential oil in. Because the tea tree oil fragrance is already solid, go easy on the essential oils that are added. Five or so drops should be enough but mix it in one drop at a time if you want to add more.
  • Funn the mixture into the receptacle. Place the funnel over the mouth of the jar and pour it in the hand sanitizer. Fill it up, then screw it onto the lid until ready to use it. A little squirt bottle fits well if you want to take the sanitizer with you throughout the day.
  • Save the remaining sanitizer in a container with a tightly fitting lid, if you make too much for the bottle.

 

Recipe #3

Gentle Hand Sanitizer Recipe (Safe for Kids)

This non-drying herbal hand sanitizing gel feeds on aloe vera. It is so easy, too, that your kids could help you make it.
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup aloe vera gel
  • 20 drops germ destroyer essential oil
How to make
  1. Combine all ingredients together and store them in a silicone tube that can be used again.
  2. Use as necessary to clear germs from the hands, naturally.

 

Recipe #4

Stronger Hand Sanitizer Recipe
 
Try this recipe for a more effective hand sanitizer that works like commercial versions (without the triclosan). If you are working in a hospital, this may be a perfect one for personal use. I wouldn't use this formula for kids!
 
Ingredients
  • 20 drops Germ Destroyer oil
  • distilled water (colloidal silver/ionic silver adds antibacterial power if available)
  • 1 TBSP rubbing alcohol
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin (optional)
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
  • other essential oils (just for scent)
How to make
  1. Mix the aloe vera gel, optional glycerin, and rub alcohol in a small bowl to make.
  2. Add essential oil of cinnamon and tea tree oil together with a drop or two of any other oils that you wish to add for fragrance. Great choices include lemongrass, peach, lavender, and peppermint.
  3. Mix well and apply distilled water to thin to desired consistency (or colloidal/ionic silver).
  4. To pass hand sanitizer into a spray or pump-style bottles, use a small funnel or medicine dropper. That can also be packed for use on the go in tiny silicone tubes.
  5. Use it as you would use any other form of hand sanitizer.

 

Recipe #5

Strongest Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe (5 Minute Recipe)
 
Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup rubbing alcohol (70% or higher)
  • 20 drops Germ Destroyer Essential Oil. (You can also use the stronger Germ Fighter, but I wouldn't suggest it for use on children)
  • 2 Tablespoons aloe vera
How to make
 
Combine all the ingredients and mix them in a spray bottle (this is a perfect size) or in any small bottle. Use as you wish.
