Hand Sanitizer: DIY

Here’s what you will need to make 4 oz of Thieves hand sanitizer: 

  • A 4 oz pump bottle 
  • A funnel 
  • A glass bowl 
  • A small spatula 
  • 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin 
  • 2 TB rubbing alcohol – this is what makes the hand sanitizer extra strength, must be at least 70% 
  • ½ cup of aloe vera gel 
  • 30 drops of Thieves essential oil (alternatively, you can use On Guard, Germ Fighter, or Medieval Mix)  
  • 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
