NOTE ON ESSENTIAL OILS

I am not affiliated with any brand of oil and you will find Young Living, Doterra, Plant Therapy and others in my herb closet. You can use whatever brand you like. However, the higher quality oils require less due to how they are manufactured. (Hence why they tend to cost more.) For brands like Doterra you only need about 1/3rd the amount of drops to be effective. Compare sizes, costs with drops to decide which one to buy that fits your budget.

I have a close friend who is a trained herbalist and creates her own salves etc. This is what she told me:

“One to two drops of a Doterra in 8 oz. [or other high quality oil] is plenty for use as an anti-bacterial. You need five to ten for a cheaper brand. For example, for a healing product you would have to use 60 -70 drops per gallon with other brands. With Doterra you would only use 12-15 drops.”

blank630x20Ingredient Option Details

Aloe Vera Gel: The Aloe Vera plant is wonderful for using in hand sanitizer because of its powerful antioxidant and antibacterial benefits. Plus it’s great for the skin and is also widely used or healing burns. This will make your sanitizer thick but it’s optional.

Tea Tree Oil: Also known as melaleuca oil, this is one of the most powerful and safe antibacterials available. (Natural or otherwise.) There are other oils that have the same property but I always use tea tree. Why? Because it will heal MRSA and did so for my son saving him the loss of his finger.

Distilled Water: You can use tap water for mixing your sanitizer but if the mixture is not used up within a few weeks it can start to putrefy. Tap water is filled with microbes and possible contaminants. Distilled water has been stripped of everything so there is nothing to “go bad”. Hence why it’s used in all herbal creations.

Containers: You can purchase various types of small empty containers at most stores including dollar stores. Or just use an empty container from something else. Because this mixture is not exact and is very forgiving you can make a larger batch easily by adjusting the amounts. It doesn’t matter if you use 10 or 15 drops of tea tree oil. It will work great!

As is a good idea for anything you’ve not used before, test these items separately on a small patch of skin.
