With the shortage Hand Sanitizer in stores, here is a quick way to make your own.  

Ingredients

2/3 c. Rubbing Alcohol (at least 60%)
1/3 c. All-Natural Aloe Vera Gel 
3 drops Tea Tree Oil
3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
3 drops Lemon Essential Oil 

Instructions

In a small/nonreactive bowl, combine alcohol and aloe vera gel until well mixed (for thicker sanitizer, add an additional tablespoon of aloe vera gel), then stir in tea tree, lavender and lemon oils. Stir well to combine after each drop. 

Use a funnel to transfer sanitizer to a glass bottle with a spray or pump top. Leftover sanitizer can be kept at room temperature in a tightly sealed jar/bottle.

Note: We also have created our own hand sanitizer. Check it out here!

DISCLAIMER: This hand sanitizer is not a substitute for proper handwashing. And while this home remedy contains commonly-accepted natural antiviral ingredients, it has never been tested in a lab to determine its efficacy. As always, check with your health care professional before using any home remedy on you or your family.

    I love the idea of this under normal circumstances but if folks are hoping to kill a virus, the hand sanitizer needs to be over 60% alcohol(according to the CDC and WHO). In the recipe above, the sanitizer quickly falls below that threshold as soon as the aloe is added to the rubbing alcohol. One would need to start with closer to 100% alcohol if they wanted to dilute it with 1 part aloe.

    Take care and enjoy the lovely sun out there!
