It seems like we are still in the mode of using hand sanitizers like they are going out of style! While I agree that we need to be careful about transferring germs and bacteria, does it need to be done by using so many toxic options??? Here is a non-toxic, natural hand cleansing gel that you can easily make and then store in whatever size bottle is convenient for you and your family.
5 tablespoons aloe Vera gel
4 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil
8-10 drops essential oil (Tea Tree, On Guard, Wild Orange, Eucalyptus, Clove and/or Lavender are all great choices)
2/3 cup isopropyl alcohol
In a bowl, combine aloe Vera and vitamin E oil. Add the essential oil (s) of choice. Add water and mix well to combine. (You can add more or less water depending on your preferred consistency) Pour into pump container(s).
