Thank you for your interest in my homemade hand sanitizer! Unfortunately, there is never a guarantee, that despite all your efforts, you won’t come down with any illness caused by a virus…but this is a great first step to help with keeping your hands clean!
As with all of Wicked Good Scentz handmade products, our hand sanitizer is made entirely from scratch. I never use a “base” or a re-packaged product from another source. What is the fun in that?
This sanitizer is not as thick as what you may be used to, since it is made with Aloe Vera juice vs Aloe Vera gel. Here is some information on a few of the ingredients I used to enhance my hand sanitizer.
Organic Castor Oil: This is an emollient and a humectant. Emollients help soothe and soften the skin while a humectant helps retain moisture in the skin. Both are great for this hand sanitizer where the alcohol content is high and can be drying.
Organic Rosemary Extract: Not only slows oxidation but can help soothe the skin due to it being blending in olive oil. Olive oil also makes a great natural cleaner.
Non-GMO Vitamin E Oil: Helps support cell function and skin health. It is also an antioxidant which makes it effective in combating free radicals produced by toxins found in the environment.
No harmful chemicals! This almost completely organic quick-drying formula contains no sulfates, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, dyes, artificial colors, or fillers. Hand sanitizers do not take the place of soap and water and should only be used only when soap and water is not available.
Directions: Shake a little before each use. Use as needed. Spray on your hands and rub in until dry. 1-2 sprays go a long way. This can also be used on clothing, such as the bottoms of shoes after being outside.
Ingredients: 60% Everclear, *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, *Ricinus communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Lavandula x intermedia (Lavandin) Hydrosol, **Vitamin E Oil, *Rosemary CO2 extract, Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, *Citrus limon (Steam Distilled Lemon) Essential Oil, *Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) Essential Oil, *Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea tree) Essential Oil, *Eucalyptus Radiata (Eucalyptus) Essential Oil.
* Organic ** Non-GMO
I know I added in the directions to shake a little before each use… but I wanted to share this blog post I found on how amazing Everclear is for DIY products such as this hand sanitizer.
Safety: Due to the eucalyptus essential oil, use on kids 6 years and older. Due to the high amount of alcohol content, this can be drying for children and they may not like the feeling. Use caution when using on children 6 and older. If you are not certain, you can use them on children 10 years and older, or try my alcohol-free version which will be safe on children over 1 years old. Keep all sanitizers out of the reach and away from children, away from heat, and this is for external use only. Most importantly, do not use on open skin wounds.
*Always do a small skin test first before using any topical product.* You can find how to do this on my website under “about me”, then under safety info!
This product comes in two sizes; 2 oz and 4 oz. I will also be creating another scent soon to add to my website.
**Please limit quantities to 3 per order.
DISCLAIMER: I just want to point out, this hand sanitizer is not a substitute for proper handwashing. This is a home remedy that I created, which contains commonly-accepted natural antiviral ingredients, it has never been tested in a lab to determine its efficacy against viruses such as the coronavirus. This version of hand sanitizer, includes the 60%+ alcohol content that the CDC and other health organizations recommend for hand sanitizer to properly kill coronavirus. This version is using 190 proof grain alcohol (Everclear), and again this version has still not been tested for efficacy against coronavirus.
