As cold and flu season are coming (sigh), many of us grab a bottle of hand sanitizer. Have you ever felt like this….
But, using these alcohol based hand sanitizers with other not-so-good ingredients can leave your hands dry and cracked, not to mention exposing your skin to unwanted chemicals.
I started using an all natural hand sanitizer and was quite pleased and satisfied with the results. It can be mixed in a few short minutes and has simple (did I ever tell you that’s my middle name?) easy to find ingredients.
Everything you see here is what you will need, including apple cider vinegar which is not pictured above.
1/4 cup 100% aloe vera gel
1/4 cup witch hazel
1 tsp vegetable glycerin
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
10 drops tea tree oil
a few drops of essential oil (optional)
bottle with lid, spray top or pump
Mix it all together and put it in bottle, shake and sanitize those hands the natural way!
Warning: This is more watery than the brand name sanitizers, but, at the same time, it is more moisturizing, distributes evenly and a little dab’l do ya!
