DIY Hand Sanitizer and Wipes

NOTE: Essentials oils must be kept in glass containers. Essential oils CAN be stored in plastic containers if the essential oils are highly diluted. Make sure they are high quality if you do use plastic containers.

 

Hand sanitizer

Roughly 6oz bottle:

-5 tablespoons 100% aloe vera gel

-4 tablespoons water + more

-1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil

-8-10 drops On Guard Protective Blend

-Small Squeeze Container or 6oz spray bottle

You can either mix it in the bottle or mix in a bowl and pour into your container afterwards. Mix the aloe vera and vitamin E oil together (or add to the bottle). Add the On Guard and the water. Mix then pour into the bottle (or simply shake the bottle!). You want it to look slightly creamy/white. If it’s too watery, add more more aloe!

 

Wipes

-Bounty paper towels (trust me, you want Bounty. For some reason, almost all other brands fall apart)

-2 cups lukewarm water (you don’t want the water too warm or you’ll destroy the oils’ healing properties)

-1 or 2 TBsp coconut oil

-3 to 5 drops lavender oil

– 3 to 5 drops malaleuca oil  (aka tea tree)

-Large enough container to hold your paper towels (we use a Folgers container!)

Cut your paper towels in half so you have to mini sized power towel rolls. Mix your water, coconut oil, lavender oil, and malaleuca oils together. Place one of the paper towel halves into the container and slowly pour your oil mixture around the paper towels. Let sit for an hour, remove the cardboard center, and you now have pull-from-the-center wipes the moisturize and heal all at the same time!

One of my favorite oil blends is the PastTense. My husband gets horrendous headaches that last three days no matter what we do. I used PastTense on him (both temples and where the hairline meets the back of the neck) and it was gone within an hour.. and it hasn’t come back. That was YESTERDAY. This isn’t a “oh look what it can dooooo” story.. it is a real life experience of ours and wow, we’re hooked on THAT oil blend now!
