How To Make Hand Sanitizer At Home?

One of the most common questions out there is whether or not you should use a hand sanitizer. Honestly, I don’t recommend using conventional hand sanitizers.

I see women and kids carrying around little bottles of hand sanitizer with them and that’s horrifying to me. I refuse to purchase those or let my kids use them. Most on the market today contain harmful ingredients that are causing more harm than good.

It’s been noted that washing your hands with plain soap and water is the best way to clean your hands. We need to get over the whole anti-bacterial fad. This is one fad that’s harming your health. When you don’t have access to wash your hands, then I would suggest carrying your own DIY hand sanitizer.

When you make your own products, it gives you control over the ingredients they contain. You can find many recipes online, however, I like to keep things as simple as possible. My go-to is a mix of water and the protective blend essential oil in a glass spray bottle. I carry this in my purse everywhere I go.

Being an avid essential oil user, I have empty bottles lying around. I clean those up and re-use them to make my hand sanitizer or any other items I can use around my home.
