Hand sanitizers seemed to have made their way into every car, diaper bag, backpack..you name it and its probably there. The concept is great. How many times have you touched something germy and wished you could find a sink to no avail. So we came up with these gels. Some of them on the market are okay (mostly vitamin E and alcohol) but there are some containing toxins like triclosan. I even read the ingredients on one bottle that had a type of antifreeze in it! But who has the time to read labels like that? Most of the time, the gels are at the store counter as an impulse item. This put me on a mission and here's what I came up with. Its a quick and easy recipe and can be put in any small applicator:
Mix 10 drops bergamot (or lemon, orange, rosemary), 30 drops tea tree, and 10 drops Vitamin E pure oils into 3 tbsp. vodka (yes vodka!) and 1 cup pure aloe gel. Blend it well until smooth (or put in blender) and store in an applicator bottle. (you can double thisto fill a soap dispenser)
At least you will know what you are rubbing into your skin so often! Its easy to live a little more naturally.
