Now that the flu and colds have run through work. I was talking to my friend Cathy and she was saying she found a way to make your own hand sanitizer. I am not a huge user of it at home because I keep forgetting to buy it so…making it at home would be great.

The way to make it….or recipe, if you will is from a woman named jill at Made out of essential oils and it’s alcohol free, that means it won’t dry out your hands!

Most “recipes” you find online will be some combination of alcohol and aloe vera gel…but a pediatrician in New Jersey recommends hand sanitizer utilizing essential oils INSTEAD of alcohol because of their antibacterial properties and because bacteria can become immune to alcohol-based sanitizers.

So here it is:

•6 oz. of water

•2 Tbsp of Aloe Vera Gel

•10 drops each of rosemary, cinnamon, eucalyptus & clove bud essential oil

•20 drops of either lemon, wild orange or grapefruit essential oil – pick your favorite.

Jill recommends using empty hand sanitizers to recycle and to make it look the same to guests.Once done she recommends rubbing a small amount onto your hands. Repeat often. Hope it helps to keep you and your family healthy without dry hands.

Jill also has some food tips and beauty tips, the website again, if you make some, drop it off to me.
