3-Ingredient Natural Homemade Hand Sanitizer

This 3-ingredient aloe and lavender recipe uses the natural germ fighting properties in tea tree oil to create an alcohol-free hand sanitizer.

Having a hand sanitizer in your purse or car to use in a pinch comes in handy when good old-fashioned soap and water are nowhere in sight.

However, most commercial hand sanitizers use alcohol as the antibacterial agent. These products are often drying and burn if you have even the slightest scratch on your hand, which can be painful for adults, not to mention children.

To make matters worse, many commercial sanitizers contain synthetic fragrances and parabens to extend the shelf life of the product. Luckily, creating a homemade hand sanitizer that contains only pure ingredients couldn’t be easier.

This DIY version is free of harsh ingredients and combines the soothing aroma of lavender with tea tree oil to combat germs, all in a moisturizing aloe vera-based gel. Grab a small pump or squeeze bottle and let’s get started!

Start out with an aloe vera gel that is pure and contains no fillers. A great aloe vera gel dries quickly, is moisturizing, and isn’t sticky. Aloe vera gel is available online and in health food stores, with plenty of natural brands to choose from.

Pour aloe vera gel into a pump or squeeze bottle. Next, add 3-4 drops of high quality tea tree oil and 4 drops of lavender oil. Lavender oil also has antiviral and antibacterial properties of its own.

If you prefer a stronger scent, add in a few more drops of lavender. Secure the lid and give the mixture a shake. Store your sanitizer in a convenient spot, like a purse or in your glove compartment.

Try these other great scents to add to your hand sanitizer…

  • Orange or citrus oil: uplifting
  • Peppermint oil: refreshing
  • Rosemary: relaxing
