DIY Hand Sanitizer

DIY Hand Sanitizer


Dear Students and Faculty – here is a Home Made Hand Sanitizer Recipe for you!

What you’ll need:

•3/4 cup of isopropyl or rubbing alcohol (99 percent)

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

•10 drops of essential oil, such as lavender oil, or you can use lemon juice instead


•Pour all ingredients into a bowl, ideally one with a pouring spout like a glass measuring container.

•Mix with a spoon and then beat with a whisk to turn the sanitizer into a gel.

•Pour the ingredients into an empty bottle for easy use, and label it “hand sanitizer.”

Ingredients to order:


Aloe Vera:

Essential Oil (here Lemongrass):

Measuring Cup:

Glass bottle (a little more expensive):

Or plastic bottles (not too environmental):
