How To Make Hand Sanitizer With Essential Oils

In today's fast-paced world, hand hygiene plays a critical role in maintaining our health and wellbeing. With the rise of hand sanitizers as a staple in our daily routines, why not elevate your sanitizing experience by creating your very own hand sanitizer infused with the benefits of essential oils? In this guide, we will explore how to make an all-natural hand sanitizer using Oshu Oils' artisan essential earth oils and provide essential tips on choosing the right ingredients for your personalized sanitizer.

Get to Know Your Ingredients

Before jumping into the process of making your essential oil-infused hand sanitizer, it's crucial to become familiar with the key ingredients required for an effective result. Here's a list of what you'll need:

- Isopropyl alcohol (at least 60%) or ethanol: This serves as the base ingredient for destroying germs and bacteria. A minimum of 60% alcohol content is required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for effective sanitization.

- Aloe vera gel: This natural ingredient is known for its soothing and moisturizing benefits, keeping your hands soft while combating dryness from the alcohol.

- Essential oils: High-quality essential oils like those from Oshu Oils provide a pleasant aroma, create a sense of luxury, and offer a range of therapeutic benefits. Popular choices for hand sanitizers include tea tree, lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon.

Choose the Right Essential Oils

Selecting the perfect essential oil for your sanitizer depends on your desired benefits and personal preferences. Some popular essential earth oils and their properties are:

- Tea Tree: Known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, tea tree oil is an excellent choice for hand sanitizer that gives an additional layer of protection.

- Lavender: Coupled with a soothing aroma, lavender oil offers antimicrobial properties and creates a calming effect, ideal for relaxation.

- Eucalyptus: This invigorating aroma comes packed with natural germ-killing properties, making eucalyptus oil perfect for uplifting your spirits while keeping your hands clean.

- Lemon: Refreshing and energizing, lemon oil provides antimicrobial benefits and reinforces the alcohol's germ-fighting actions.

Creating Your Essential Oil Hand Sanitizer

With your desired ingredients on-hand, it's time to create your custom essential oil-infused hand sanitizer. Follow the simple steps below to achieve an effective and luxurious hand sanitizer:

1. Prepare your container: Choose a small, airtight container or bottle capable of holding at least 1/3 cup of liquid. Reusable and travel-sized containers are ideal for carrying your sanitizer wherever you go.

2. Mix your base: In a bowl, combine 2/3 cup of isopropyl alcohol or ethanol with 1/3 cup of aloe vera gel. Mixing well ensures a consistent, smooth texture.

3. Add your essential oils: Depending on the intensity of the aroma, add 10-20 drops of your chosen essential oil or blend to the mixture. The more potent the oil, the fewer drops you'll need.

4. Transfer to your container: Use a small funnel or a dropper to transfer your sanitizing mixture into your chosen container, and seal it tightly.

5. Label your creation: Get creative with your label, including the name of your sanitizer, ingredients used, and any special instructions.

How To Make Hand Sanitizer With Essential Oils Example:

For a refreshing and energizing hand sanitizer, try this recipe:

- 2/3 cup isopropyl alcohol (99%)

- 1/3 cup aloe vera gel

- 10-15 drops lemon essential oil

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and transfer to a reusable container. Enjoy a zesty aroma while keeping your hands clean and protected!
