Homemade Hand Sanitizer

If you want a safe hand sanitizer without potentially harmful chemicals, try this all-natural formula. It is perfect for all skin types, and the kitchen-cupboard ingredients really work to kill germs.

1/4 cup witch hazel extract
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
1 tsp. vegetable glycerin
1 tbsp. lemon juice or organic apple cider vinegar
10 drops tea tree oil

1. Place ingredients in a lidded glass jar and shake to combine.

2. Place a dab on your hands and massage into your skin.

3. Rinse with warm water.

Yes lavendar would also work along with tea tree e/o because it too has a disinfectant property and is also good and safe for the skin :p
