Have you made hand sanitizer before?

Everyone knows that washing hands is the best way to keep germs away.  What do you do when you can't wash your hands?  You can clean them with your own homemade hand sanitizer.  Here's how!

You will need:
- a 3 oz bottle
- 1.0 oz aloe vera gel
- 1.5 oz rubbing alcohol
For extra potency, you can add tea tree oil and lavender essential oils. For a recipe this size, you can add 2-3 drops of tea tree oil or 2 drops of tea tree & 1 drop of lavender (to take the edge off the medicinal smell of tea tree).  Both tea tree and lavender essential oils are not only antisbacterial and antifungal, but also antiviral.

You can alter your batch size -just keep the ratio of 3 parts alcohol to 2 parts aloe vera gel to ensure germ fighting abilities).
