How To Make Hand Sanitizer At Home

It is always recommended to wash hands with soap as the best cleaning method, but the question remains, what will you do if you do not have soap and water? The answer is hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizers that can protect you from bacteria are available in the form of commercial products, but they may be expensive, and due to their recent unavailability in stores due to the increased demand for them due to the Corona Virus (Covid 19) pandemic , there is a need to learn how to make them at home, which we review together in The following parts of the article. [1] It is a very simple process, other than the ability to adjust its ingredients to your personal preference, which is a plus of homemade hand sanitizers. Choose from the following either an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or a hand sanitizer with witch hazel and tea tree oil.

1-Alcoholic hand sanitizer


Gather the necessary components and tools. Homemade sanitizer will mimic the same commercial sanitizers, but without the chemicals and bad smell. And always remember that hand sanitizer is not a substitute for washing them with soap and water, but it is a good option if there is no way to wash your hands in a regular way (for example, when you are outside the house). Here is the list of components and tools we need to use in the steps below:
  • ⅔ cup of rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or grain/ethyl alcohol 190.
  • ⅓ cup of pure aloe vera gel (preferably without additives).
  • 8 to 10 drops of any essential/volatile oil, such as: lavender, cloves, cinnamon or peppermint
  • mixing bowl
  • spoon
  • respression
  • plastic bottle


2-Mix the alcohol and aloe vera gel in the bowl. 


Begin pouring both the alcohol and the aloe vera gel into the bowl, using a spoon to mix them together. You should keep stirring until you get a very smooth mixture.

You can increase the density of the solution by adding another tablespoon of aloe vera.
Or reduce the density of the mixture by adding another tablespoon of alcohol.


3-Add the essential oil. 


Add one drop of volatile/essential oil at a time, stirring well before adding the next drop. After you have stirred all eight of the drops, you can smell the mixture to judge your satisfaction with the fragrance, and based on your assessment, add more perfume drops if you want a stronger scent, or stick to the standard amount of perfume drops if you don't want more. [3]
It is specifically suggested to use volatile oils of lavender, cloves, cinnamon, and peppermint, as they add more beneficial antiseptic properties to your homemade hand sanitizer. You can use any other aromatic scent if you do not like the above, such as: lemon, grapefruit, or passion fruit.


4-Transfer the mixed solution to the plastic bottle with a funnel. 


Place the funnel over the nozzle of the plastic bottle and start pouring the hand sanitizer you made from the mixing bowl into the bottle. Fill the bottle to the end, and use another bottle if the amount you made is more than the current bottle can fill, and don't forget to close the bottles tightly with the cap. Store the bottles well until you need to use them. [4]
A small squirt bottle is recommended if you plan to carry sanitizer with you and carry it around throughout the day.
Use large glass containers to store bulks of your sanitizer, such as large glass jars with tight fitting lids.

Hamamelis hand sanitizer

1-Gather the necessary materials and tools.


 Due to the strong smell of alcohol and its negative effect on dry skin, some people do not prefer to use hand sanitizers that contain it. In this case, the best alternative is to rely on hand sanitizers containing Hamamelis (witch hazel / witch hazel), [5] to which tea tree oil is added for more Purifying properties. Here are the materials and tools needed to make this type of hand sanitizer at home:
  • A cup of pure aloe vera gel (aloe vera), preferably without additives.
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon of hamamelis (witch hazel).
  • 30 drops of tea tree oil
  • 5 drops of an essential oil, such as: lavender or peppermint.
  • mixing bowl
  • spoon
  • respression
  • plastic bottle/container


2-Mix aloe vera gel with witch hazel tea tree oil. 


Follow the same ingredients mentioned in the previous step, but if you want to increase the density than it is, you can add another tablespoon of aloe vera, while if you think it is too thick and you want to reduce it, add a tablespoon of hamamelis.


3-Add the essential oil. 


Note that the smell of tea tree oil is really strong, so you may not need to add a lot of the essential oil to the mixture. 5 drops or so should be quite enough, and it's OK to add more to your liking in general. Stir well after adding each drop before adding the next. 

4-Transfer the mixture to the plastic bottle with the funnel.



 Place the funnel over the nozzle of the plastic bottle and start pouring the hand sanitizer you made from the mixing bowl into the bottle. Fill the bottle to the end, and use another bottle if the amount you made is more than the current bottle can fill, and don't forget to close the bottles tightly with the cap. Store the bottles well until you need to use them.
A small squirt bottle is recommended if you plan to carry sanitizer with you and carry it around throughout the day.
Use large glass containers to store bulks of your sanitizer, such as large glass jars with tight fitting lids.


Warnings

Do not put hand sanitizer in your eyes, and if it gets in your eyes, be sure to wash them immediately or even seek medical help immediately if necessary.
