Let's start by stating that according to all the health officials, the best way to protect yourself against germs and the current COVID-19 is washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. So this does not replace these recommendd hygiene regiments. For those of us who are still often on the go, and with hand sanitizer supply in decline in many local areas, here is a good DIY recipe from our essential oils and naturals friends:


  1. 5-10 drops lavender essential oil
  2. 30 drops tea tree essential oil
  3. 3 ounces rubbing alcohol (don't have that either? Try a high-proof vodka, like Everclear)
  4. 1 ounce aloe vera gel (or substitute with wit hazel to make a spray instead)
  5. ¼ teaspoon Vitamin E oil (helps keep hands soft and preserves)

Now, mix the oils. Add the alcohol and mix again. Add the gel and mix again. Voila! 

Put in small, colored, squirt bottles (or spray bottles if you opted for a spray version) and throw into your bag for on the go (colored so the essential oils are not exposed to light). This should preserve for several months. 

Make it a great day!
