We know you've been asking, so here it is - Diana's coveted recipe for her home-made natural hand sanitizer we have in our reception area:
2 drops tea tree essential oil
2 drops oil of oregano
3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
4 drops lemon grass essential oil
1 tbsp witch hazel
3 tbsp aloe vera gel
1 tsp vitamin E (soothing and acts as a preservative)
Combine ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well. Pour into the container of choice and use as needed!
This is a formula that is easier on your skin and doesn't have the strong smell of traditional hand sanitizers. There are natural germ killing properties in tea tree oil, oil of oregano and witch hazel. Use this DIY hand sanitizer in conjunction with regular hand washing, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, and limiting physical contact while sick to help prevent the spread of germs and sickness!
