Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer With Tea Tree Oil

Make your own hand sanitizer with tea tree oil, a safer natural sanitizer that is much better than chemicals . You can make your own hand sanitizer without alcohol that dries or chemicals that you don’t want on you or your kids, and still help cut down on the germs.

Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer With Tea Tree Oil

When making this hand sanitizer we will be using soothing aloe vera gel and  tea tree essential oil which is a natural germ killer. You can put your sanitizer in a pump or squeeze bottle once you have it made. You can buy the aloe vera gel in different sizes so if you just want to make a large bottle of it you can buy the large bottle of  gel. You can also get a pack of four two ounce bottles and once mixed add it back to them so that everyone will have their own for purse or backpack.


Aloe Vera Gel, Large bottle or 4 pack of 2 ounces

Tea Tree Oil

Pour your aloe vera gel into a bowl and add 30 drops of tea tree oil for every 8 ounces of aloe vera gel. Stir together well and then put the mixture into your pump or squeeze bottles that you will use for your hand sanitizer.

The aloe vera gel is soothing and non drying and the tea tree oil is a germ killer and a fungicide, so it will kill a variety of things that can make us sick.  While the aloe vera gel will have preservatives in it to keep it from spoiling I like that better than the stuff that is in hand sanitizers.
