Hand sanitizer can be a mom’s best friend in the winter, right? With germs everywhere and kids touching everything all the time, it’s a good defense against illness. But what happens if you don’t want to use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with your kids. Or you’re tired of the gross smell?
Did you know you can make homemade natural hand sanitizer? Yes!
I went on a quest to come up with my own homemade natural hand sanitizer that would protect my family without any alcohol or chemicals and I found it. It’s much easier to make homemade hand sanitizer than I ever would have imagined, and it smells so much better than the store stuff. And as an added bonus, it moisturizes instead of drying skin out!
What You’ll Need to Make Homemade Natural Hand Sanitizer:
*Witch Hazel – I did use a brand that had alcohol in it (which I didn’t totally mind for its extra germ killing qualities), but you can spend a bit more and get Thayers witch hazel without it if you prefer.
*Aloe Vera pure 100% gel – I got a 2 oz bottle in the travel section so that I could re-use it and put the handmade natural hand sanitizer in it for my purse or car.
You can choose to go all-organic, high quality for these ingredients and spend more money or buy the cheapest ingredients you can find. I’ve tried a variety and they all work well; the choice is yours.
