Herbal Hand Sanitizer Gel
1 Tbsp. Vinegar (I like using apple cider vinegar when making skin products, it doesn't smell strong when dry)
1 cup 100% aloe vera gel
30 drops tea tree essential oil *
8-10 drops essential oil of choice (rosemary, cedarwood, sage, or lavender)
¼ tsp. pure vitamin E oil
In a small bowl, mix essential oils with Vitamin E oil.
Add the vinegar to the oils and mix again.
Add this mixture to the aloe vera gel and mix well.
Pour the mixture into a couple of clean, dark 4-ounce bottles with pump caps.
Shake gently before each use.
* tea tree oil is found to kill most types of bacteria at a concentration of 0.5-1%. The concentration of tea tree oil in this recipe is 0.5%. If you adjust this recipe, be sure to keep the concentration of tea tree oil consistent so your recipe is effective.
