Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are a cheap and effective way to kill germs when you do not have access to running water, but some times sensitivity to fragrances or other ingredients may necessitate finding an alternative. Below are a couple of recipes so you can make your own.

 Spray Hand Sanitizer

4 ounces distilled water

2 teaspoons aloe vera gel

1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil

15 drops tea tree oil

5 drops lavender, clary sage or rosemary essential oil

Place all ingredients in a small spray bottle and shake well. Shake before each use.

Gel Hand Sanitizer

10 drops lavender, clary sage or rosemary essential oil

30 drops tea tree oil

¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil

1 Tablespoon witch hazel

8 ounces aloe vera gel

Mix all oils into witch hazel. Add aloe vera and mix thoroughly
