Make your own hand sanitiser quickly and easily!
As the urgency of our personal care and hygiene never stops, the use of hand sanitiser has now become part of our daily routine. For this reason, today’s article is about making a homemade hand sanitiser with three simple ingredients.
We all recognise how important it is to wash our hands often. Especially after the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the efforts for the benefit of our personal hygiene have increased. However, it is not uncommon being unable to wash our hands with soap and water.
Thus, using an antiseptic is the only way to get rid of germs. Below you will find instructions for making a hand sanitiser with aloe base based. Also, pay close attention to the tips you will see below as they can make the whole process easier for you!
What we will need:1. Aloe
2. Alcoholic lotion
3. Lavender and tea tree essential oil
How to make it:
a) In a bowl or food bag (see tips) place 3 tbsp. of aloe and 1 tbsp. alcoholic lotion.
b) Mix your base very well and add alcoholic lotion if the mixture is too thick.
c) Add half teaspoon tree oil and 7-8 drops of lavender oil and mix well.
d) Transfer the mixture to a bottle.
I. In order for your sanitiser to have a successful effect in killing germs, the alcoholic lotion should have a strength of at least 60%, and preferably 99% as it will be mixed with aloe gel.
II. The use of lavender and tea tree essential oils is not random. The lavender essential oil has healing and antiseptic properties. Tea tree oil, on the other hand, fights germs and has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
III. If you want your antiseptic to have spray form, you can add a larger amount of alcohol, in proportion to the aloe. Spray bottles can be found here.
IV. For a more comfortable transfer of the mixture to the bottle you can prepare your antiseptic directly in a food bag, opening and placing it on a bowl. So then, you will be able to cut off the corner of the bag and make a nozzle that will facilitate the pouring.
V. If we want to colour our antibacterial gel, we can add soap colour.
And so, there is no longer any excuse for dirty hands!
The importance of packaging to the pharmaceutical galenical preparations.
The quality of producing and packaging galenical preparations is the solution for every pharmacist who wishes to upgrade his business. But where does the term “galenical preparations” come from and are the advantages of creating these products?
The galenical pharmaceutics, in the first place, were the medicine that were prepared by Claudius Galenus (Galen), the second most important doctor after Hippocrates, during the ancient years. According to the bibliography, these pharmaceutics were complex and came from plants’ oils and animals.
It is true that the art of creating pharmaceutics had disappeared for a while and the pharmacist was just the seller of products made from pharmaceutical companies. But now, the market of galenical pharmaceutics is developing rapidly, creating a competition in this specific field.
The pharmaceutics that are prepared in a pharmacy lab have many advantages and a pharmacist can profit from them. There is also a big benefit for the patients that use them.
Galenical preparations cover a big range of needs, comparing to the industry made ones.
Some of these are:
• Adjusting the pharmaceutics to the patient’s needs, individually.
• Covering the needs that may appear in certain groups, such as the elderly or infants.
• Prescription of medicine, either non-existing or in lack of from industries.
• Changing the form of the medicine for easy use, for example turning a pill into a syrup.
• Preparing homeopathy pharmaceutics.
• Creating cosmetic products.
• Producing pharmaceutics without conservatives, suitable for long term treatments and ideal for sensitive skin.
