For those getting frantic for hand sanitizer to ease your mind but can’t find any at the store, I’ve come across a recipe to make your own.
This is from Lisa Taormino RN, BSN, ASN, BS, which came to me from Penn Herbs
If you’re running into empty shelves when you go shopping for hand sanitizers, don’t panic, just make your own. When you know you won’t be able to access soap and water, whip up a batch ahead of time to spray hands and surfaces.
What you will need: Bowl, spoon, spray bottle container.
2/3 cup 60-99% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)
1/3 cup aloe vera gel
8 to 10 drops essential oil (optional)
Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemon, Rosemary, and Tea tree are great options.
Nothing could be easier! Simply mix the ingredients together and then pour them into the bottle. Screw the lid onto the bottle and you’re ready to go!
