Homemade Hand Sanitizer Spray

While I’m not a big fan of hand sanitizer, since it can be drying to your hands and it usually just smells bad, I can understand that it has its time and place. If you are in a very dirty, germ-filled grocery store with nowhere to wash your hands during flu and cold season, you aren’t going to care if your hands smell a little bit from using hand sanitizer; at least they are clean!

If you’d rather skip the store version, it’s actually pretty easy to make your own DIY Hand Sanitizer Spray. You just need a few simple ingredients. Here’s the simple recipe for how to make hand sanitizer spray!

What You Need: 
  • 1 1/4 cup 99% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol
  • 6 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Gel
  • 20 drops of Tea Tree Oil
Instructions: 

In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together until they are well blended. Pour into a small spray bottle and use as needed. Be sure and give it a shake before using to help distribute the essential oils better.

This will make the perfect amount for a 12-ounce spray bottle. You could also pour it into smaller bottles which will fit easily into your diaper bag or purse so you can always have it on hand for those trips to the grocery store, restaurant or after playing at the park.
