#MakersWednesday: DIY moisturizing vanilla hand sanitizer

Posted By on Mar 12, 2014 in Handmade Love and Inspiration


It’s Flu season, and that means germs! Time to protect yourself, but if you’re like me you probably hate the smell and ickiness of commercial hand sanitizers. Lucky for us, it’s pretty easy to make your own since the main ingredient in most is rubbing alcohol.

For this week’s #MakersWednesday, we’re going to DIY some germ prevention!

How to make your own hand sanitizer:

1. Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 1 part witch hazel

2. Add a few drops of jojoba oil and vanilla fragrance. (Make sure you use a fragrance or essential oil that is skin safe!)

That’s it – this recipe is easy peasy, yummy and clean!
