This DIY hand sanitizer contains enough alcohol to be approved for disinfection during the coronavirus epidemic.

DIY HAND SANITIZER – Apply to hands for 60 seconds or more and let wet


3/4 cup of isopropyl or alcohol. It must be between 70% and 99%. Pay attention to the percentage on the front of the bottle

1/4 cup aloe vera gel (to keep your hands smooth and counteract the hardness of alcohol)

10 drops of essential oil such as lavender oil or lemon juice


Pour all of the ingredients into a bowl with a pourer, as a glass measuring jar can best.

Mix with a spoon and then whisk with a whisk to turn the disinfectant into a gel.

Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use. A squirt bottle works too. Be sure to label it hand sanitizer.

This is a really great hand cream to use with the disinfectant. It prevents the hands from drying out and is not sticky or smooth.


Mix two parts of glycerin (in drugstores or Amazon) with one part of lemon juice. You can use fresh lemon or keep bought lemon juice.

Place it in a small labeled container with a tight lid.

The nice thing about it is that it is not greasy. Because it smells clean and natural, it's fantastic for men or women.
