Here are a few homemade hand sanitizer recipes for you:

Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer Recipe


  • 1 cup PURE aloe vera gel (not the green stuff)
  • 1-4 teaspoons of Witch Hazel (amount depends on desired consistency)                                             5-10 drops of essential oil (tea tree and peppermint also have natural antibacterial properties) properties
After stirring the aloe vera in a bowl for a bit, slowly start adding the witch hazel (or alcohol) until it forms the consistency level you would like to have. Then, add your essential oils in the amount you desire. 

Another Alcohol-Free Recipe

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup pure  aloe vera gel
  • 1-2 teaspoons of witch hazel (add until the desired consistency is reached)
  • 1/4 tsp (or 25 drops) tea tree oil (or increased amounts of other essential oils)

Hand Sanitizer with Alcohol

  • 1/4 c. aloe vera gel (as pure as you can get)
  • 3/4 c. rubbing alcohol (at least 91%)
  • 1/8 c. vegetable glycerin (optional) (if omitted, use an extra 1/8 c. aloe vera gel)
  • 10 drops essential oil (cinnamon and sweet orange are only two examples) (optional)
Pour everything into your food processor or blender and let it go on high for a minute or two. Bottle and use as you would any hand sanitizer. Keeps for 6 months or more.

Hand Sanitizer with Soap

  • Ingredients:
    1. some small soap pieces
    2. water
    3. a few drops of perfume, essential oils, rose water or a little honey

    Add simmering water to the small soap pieces or directly immersed in distilled water after shaking a few days. Add the oils or whatever you want to add to this mixture. Pour it all into a suction pressure type of a container. 

    This sanitizer should be able to stay for a few months.
