  • 2/3 C Isopropyl Alcohol 70-91% or, 190 proof alcohol, avoid methanol or butanol
  • 1/3 C aloe vera gel prevents hands from drying out from the alcohol
  • 6 drops vitamin E oil adds moisturizing properties
  • essential oil optional - tea tree or lavender, a few drops


  • Mix all ingredients well.
  • Divide between several small bottles or tubes.


The CDC recommends hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol. So if you don't have essential oils, don't worry! The main and most crucial ingredient is the alcohol.
