DIY Hand Sanitizer

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

With germs at the forefront of washing, soap should be enough, but if your like me the kids just seem to be grubby ALL of the time!

Here's a super simple DIY hand sanitizer anyone can make at home to help aid the germ free mission.

What you'll need:

Pump bottle

3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99 percent)

1/4 cup of aloe vera gel (to help keep your hands smooth and to counteract the harshness of alcohol)

10 drops of essential oil such as tea tree or peppermint

How to make:

Pour all ingredients into a bowl & mix with a spoon and then beat with a whisk to turn the sanitizer into a gel.

Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use & prepare to spray!


This hand sanitizer is not a substitute for proper hand washing. And while this home remedy contains commonly-accepted natural antiviral ingredients, it has never been tested in a lab to determine it’s efficacy against viruses such as the coronavirus.

A tested recipe can be found through the World Health Organization.

As always, check with your health care professional before using any home remedy on you or your family.
