Natural Hand Sanitizer

Natural Hand Sanitizer

This recipe is super easy and alcohol free or if you want a little rubbing alcohol  in it you can use half witch hazel and half rubbing alcohol. I feel like the orange, lemon and tea tree essential oils do a good job disinfecting.  This recipe is also safe for small children who shouldn’t absorb rubbing alcohol into their skin as it can be too toxic for them.


8 ounces witch hazel or 4 ounces witch hazel and 4 ounces rubbing alcohol
8 ounces aloe vera gel
20 – 30 drops each orange, lemon and tea tree essential oils

Mix everything together and pour into bottles. Label and date.
