MOMtrepreneur Tip of the Day: How to Make Lori's Homemade Natural Hand Sanitizer


I know a lot of people who use hand sanitizer religiously. However, there are others who don't want to use santizers because of the alcohol. That's why Lori, who lives a healthy lifestyle, decided to make her own natural version.

Lori, of Health Extremist, found a natural ingredient that helps fight germs and viruses. She said it's antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiviral, which makes it a great all natural alternative to alcohol based sanitizers. 

Ingredients:
  • 8 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Gel
  • 16 Drops of Tea Tree Oil
  • 10 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
  • Optional: Add a few drops of other essential oils such as thyme, lemon, or orange

If you would like to know where to buy these ingredients, and the instructions, please visit Lori, at Health Extremist.

Great idea and very useful. Perfect for school, work, the car...we buy small bottles of hand sanitizer for lots of places, and it would really be nice to make our own.

What a great idea! Thanks -- I have edged away from using hand sanitizer because of its alcohol content -- you've solved that problem!

My son loves to use hand sanitizer, which I'm grateful for. It's great to see how to make it myself to save some money.

This is great! I can't use hand sanitizer because I always have my hands around my face and I end up ingesting it, which makes me feel very sick. This stuff is probably a lot better!
