With it being cold and flu season, many people add hand sanitizer to their shopping lists.

Older adults, children and people with compromised immune systems are the ones that are at the greatest risk of not being able to fight off colds, and flu (if they became infected).

The best thing we can all do is make sure to wash our hands often! Very Very Often!

Sometimes washing our hands just isn’t an option though.

So what do we do then?

We use hand sanitizer!

This homemade hand sanitizer not only works just as well as the store-bought types but it smells a lot better and is much less expensive.

You will only need a few simple ingredients from the store, although most of us may even have them in our homes already.

Medical professionals and the CDC have said that the most effective hand sanitizers are comprised of at least 60% alcohol.

Those hand sanitizers tend to really dry out your hands quickly because they are basically alcohol. That’s why we add Aloe Vera gel and Essential Oils.

Homemade Hand Sanitizer Recipe

2/3 cup Alcohol

1/3 cup Aloe Vera Gel

Essential Oil of your choice


In a bowl mix alcohol and aloe vera gel together.

Add several drops of essential oil till you have your desired fragrance.

Using a funnel, pour into a travel size bottle. This will work well to carry in your purse or in the car.

You can also pour this mixture into a pump bottle to use around your home or office.
