How To Make Hand Sanitizer

Tired of paying for hand sanitizer? Then, grab a few ingredients, and make your own!
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 minutes or less

Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe

  • 1/4 c. aloe vera gel (as pure as you can get)
  • 3/4 c. rubbing alcohol (at least 65%)
  • essential oil

Here's How:

  1. Mix the aloe vera and Isopropyl alcohol together until well blended.
  2. Add 8-10 drops of essential oil to the mixture for fragrance (if desired), and stir well.
  3. Pour the finished hand sanitizer into an empty container and seal.
    Contains 65% Alcohol


  1. Many essential oils like tea tree oil and lavender have antibacterial properties. Use one of these to boost the germ-zapping power of your hand sanitizer.
  2. Save the bottles from store-bought hand sanitizer, and refill them again and again.
  3. A little goes a long way with this recipe. Once applied, just rub your hands together until the moisture evaporates and the stickiness vanishes.
