DIY Natural Hand Sanitizer

DIY Hand Sanitizer DIY Hand Sanitizer

Little hands carry lots of germs and, happily, I found the perfect recipe for an all natural and effective hand sanitizer that you can make with just a few simple ingredients!


  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Witch Hazel – you can purchase at any drugs store but I recommend getting one that is 86% witch hazel, 14%alcohol
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil (optional)
  • Essential Oil (optional) I used lavender
  • This is a great essential oil starter kit that includes tea tree and lavender

Recipe (makes slightly more than 1 cup)

  • 8oz Aloe Vera
  • 1 Tbs Witch Hazel
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Tea Tree Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Vitamin E Oil (optional)
  • 10-20 drops Lavender Oil (optional) *you can use any essential oil for scent but Lavender and Peppermint are good choices because they have antibacterial properties.
