HOW TO MAKE THE MOST EFFECTIVE HAND SANITIZER AT HOME :
Before you start making your own hand sanitizer at home, there is a very important point to note.
Isopropyl alcohol is highly flammable and will burn your skin should it come into direct contact with your hands.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Pour the Isopropyl Alcohol and Aloe Vera Gel into the bowl. As hand sanitizers need to contain at least 60% alcohol to be effective, you should ideally maintain a 2:1 ratio of Isopropyl Alcohol to Aloe Vera Gel. For every 4oz of Isopropyl Alcohol you add, you should mix 2oz of Aloe Vera Gel
- Add essential oils to the mix if needed. You don’t necessarily need essential oils, but if you like a particular smell, you can add a few drops of oil. (Lavender, Lemon, Berries)
- Stir the ingredients together with a spoon and pour them into plastic bottles using a funnel.
- Your hand sanitizer is ready to go.
