DIY Hand Sanitizer

It’s a crazy time and we wanted to share an easy hand sanitizer recipe for making at home. Sure, we could jump on making a bunch and putting them up for sale, but we feel like its better to share these easy recipes with our community for free. We are here for you.

We can’t say enough how important it is to wash your hands with good soap and hot water! But if you want a little more, here’s a few recipes to make your own natural hand sanitizer.


  • 5 oz. 190-proof vodka, alcohol or Everclear
  • Essential oils like: Clove bud, lemon, tea tree, cinnamon, eucalyptus, or grapefruit. I love simple tea tree & grapefruit. Use 40-60 drops.
    **Experiment with the smells you love the most
