This DIY homemade hand sanitizer with essential oils can help protect you and your loved ones from germs keeping hands, fresh and clean. Keeping your hands clean is one of the most effective ways to stay healthy and ensure that you don’t spread germs to others.
Sometimes busy schedules and travel can lead to using harsh, drying chemicals to sanitize your hands on the run. This DIY natural homemade hand sanitizer is the perfect quick fix to soothe, sanitize, soften, and refresh your hands, wherever you are.
The recipe is the perfect blend of aloe and five essential oils that help stop germs in their tracks. The base ingredient of the homemade hand sanitizer is soothing, cooling aloe gel. Kokokahn offers an aloe gel which is cold pressed, 99.75% organic, pesticide free, and the purest form we have found on the market. It has a 2 year shelf life refrigerated, and comes from a Texas farm in the U.S.A.
The next antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungal and immune supporting ingredient is lemon essential oil, which is cold pressed from the rind of the fruit and has countless beneficial purposes besides sanitizing your hands!
Next, the perfect complement to the recipe is happy, and uplifting cold pressed orange essential oil, cheerfully contributing its own antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungal and immune supporting super powers.
Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the peppermint plant and adds antiseptic strength to the homemade hand sanitizer. The antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties of tea tree essential oil contribute as well.
Last but certainly not least, is the powerful, therapeutic lavender essential oil. Kokokahn’s lavender essential oil is from Provence, France. The germ fighting, immune bolstering strength of the homemade hand sanitizer is matched with its unique, uplifting, relaxing, rejuvenating, and naturally appealing scent.
What could be easier? Simply funnel the aloe gel and the following recipe ingredients into the 1 ounce PET plastic spray bottle, then cap, shake and drop into your purse, kid’s backpack, pocket, travel bag, beach bag, diaper bag, car storage bin…and you are ready to spray germs away and enjoy sanitized and smooth hands in a snap, everywhere you go!
