Can’t find any hand sanitizer in your area? This will do the trick!
Home Made Hand Sanitizer
2/3 cup isopropyl alcohol 91% (rubbing alcohol)
1/3 cup aloe vera gel
8-10 drops of essential oil
In a mixing bowl, stir Isopropyl alcohol and aloe vera gel together until well blended.
Add 8-10 drops of scented essential oil (optional, but nice!). Stir to incorporate.
Pour the homemade hand sanitizer into an empty container and seal. Write “hand sanitizer” on a piece of masking tape and affix to the bottle.
The CDC recommends using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. This recipe makes a sanitizer that slightly exceeds that alcohol content at 60.66%, so follow the proportions exactly. If you want a sanitizer with a higher alcohol percentage, decrease the amount of aloe vera to 1/4 cup.
Suggestions of essential oils: rosemary with orange or lemon; lavender with or without frankincense; tea tree with just a drop of mint.
