How to make your own Herbal Hand Sanitizer

Let’s talk germs! Everyone knows that prevention is way better then the cure! Everyone washes their hands more then enough to keep germs at bay. We even use those convenient store bought chemical laden hand sanitizers we see sitting so pretty on the shelves at Wal-mart.

However! There is a better way to get our hands clean and germ free then lathering Trisclosan, the active ingredient in hand sanitizer, all over your hands. This effectively kills any good bacteria lowering your body’s natural defenses to all the bad bacteria. This also increases the body’s absorption of a dangerous chemical!

There are always germs to worry about! However if we make our own hand sanitizer we can rest in the knowledge that we know what we are putting into our bodies via our skin.

Try the following sanitizer as a safe alternative to the harsh chemicals found lining the shelves of our supermarkets!

1/2 C organic aloe vera gel
2 teaspoons Herbal infused oil
1 teaspoon Thyme tincture
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil

1. Add the Aloe Vera and and herbal infused oil together and whisk.
2. Then add the Thyme and essential oils to the Aloe Vera mixture.
3. Place in a container of your choosing and enjoy!

Simple easy recipe for your own Hand sanitizer 🙂 Now I wonder if the children’s school will accept this…
