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!
