     I wasn't surprised to discover that most hand sanitizers on the market contain "inactive ingredients" that happen to be toxic to our immune system and our body overall. "Fragrance" and "Aminomethyl Propanol", both commonly contained in hand sanitizers, are proven to be skin irritants, cause immunotoxicity, and have negative effects on our endocrine system, affecting reproduction. Additionally, they kill off our good bacteria that are essential to keep our skin balanced and protected!

     The good news: you can make your own hand sanitizer at home. Here is a simple yet effective recipe you can whip up yourself in no time!

     Note: I understand it is difficult to purchase sanitizers during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, let alone the ingredients to make one, and this is why we will be launching our very own limited edition multi-purpose sanitizer! We felt it was necessary to have this available to you at this time so you can continue to actively protect your health and others. Please join our newsletter to be the first one to know when our sanitizer is available to pre-order, and you can additionally stay in touch on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. 

 

Simple DIY Hand Sanitizer

    • 2 oz spray bottle
    • 1/2 teaspoon jojoba oil
    • 1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera Juice 
    • 3 Tablespoons 190 proof grain alcohol (Everclear)
    • 5 drops each of: lemon, sweet orange and grapefruit essential oils
    • 3 drops of thieves essential oil blend or lavender essential oil

Combine ingredients in a measuring cup and pour into the 2oz spray bottle. Make sure to shake before each use! 

 

 

Disclaimer: We make no health claims, including claims that this hand sanitizer will kill COVID-19. This hand sanitizer is not a substitute for proper hand washing. While this home remedy contains natural anti-viral and anti-bacterial ingredients, and additionally contains 60% high proof alcohol which the CDC (Center of Disease Control) confirms kills COVID-19, we are unable to make any claims.

Any sub for 190 proof alcohol or advice on where to buy it? Can’t seem to find it in Ontario. Thanks for this recipe
