Easy Peasy DIY Hand Sanitizer Recipe

Rest easy germophobes! In this era of superbugs when hand sanitizers may be just as lethal as the germs you are trying to combat, we have got your back. Hand sanitizers contain triclosan which could lead to bacterial resistance and hormone disruption. That’s why we have developed an easy, effective hand sanitizer made from natural ingredients.

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup aloe vera gel
  • 2 tsp. witch hazel
  • 15 drops teatree oil
  • 5 drops of lavender oil

Mix together in a squeeze bottle and just squeeze onto your hands when needed.
