If your skin breaks out in rashes from harsh chemical additives to personal care products, or you aren’t always near a sink for a thorough 20 second hand washing, here is a simple recipe for homemade hand sanitizer.
1/3 C. Aloe vera gel
2/3 C. Rubbing alcohol (99%)
Few drops of essential oil.
Combine all ingredients.
I had neroli oil on hand, but lavender oil, which has natural antiseptic properties would be even better.
Both essential oils and aloe are available at Common Crow.
