DIY: how to make your own hand sanitizer in 5 minutes


With all the panic and concern going around amidst COVID-19 concerns, it's important to know the measures you can take independently to secure your safety. With hand sanitizer, soap and other supplies going out of stock at retailers near you, we took the liberty of adapting a DIY hand sanitizer recipe for you to make your own hand sanitizer at home. 

  • 2/3 cup rubbing alcohol (70% or higher)
  • 2 Tablespoons aloe vera (Glycerin can be substituted)
  • 20 drops Germ Destroyer Essential Oil. (You can also use Germ Fighter- stronger, not recommended for use on kids)

Mix ingredients together, and combine in a spray bottle (can be purchased at the dollar store) or a small squeezable bottle of any kind.

The CDC recommends at least 60% alcohol in hand sanitizer to fight viruses. This formula follows the percentage, adding aloe vera for gentleness and essential oils for extra virus fighting. 

Stay safe, everyone!
