If you suffer from allergies or eczema then, like me, you may also suffer from sensitive skin. This makes using commercial soaps a no-no and for years I have steered away from the commercial hand sanitizers on the market. Just a peek at the ingredient label on these products is enough to turn me off!
This Hand Sanitizer recipe is SUPER simple and only has three ingredients to make – Tea Tree Oil (Great cleansing oil that has anti-fungal properties!), Aloe Vera and Rubbing Alcohol!
Since using this recipe, I have had no rashes or ill effects to my hands. I find the Aloe Vera in the recipe stops my hands from becoming dry, a common problem that can occur with commercial hand sanitizers!
It is a bit of a runny recipe, unlike the gel consistency of the store ones. Therefore, I would suggest putting it in a spray bottle, but you can also just leave it in a normal non-leaking bottle if that suits you better!
Hope you enjoy!
