When shopping for household cleaning or personal items I would generally buy what has the cutest label, the most current marketing gimmick or simply what’s on sale without ever glancing at the ingredient list. Now that I’ve read Skin Cleanse I have become quite curious as to what ingredients are in many of my daily household items and was able to start making my own hand sanitizer using essential oils.
Maybe it was just simply educating myself or finally wanting to put my kit of Young Living essential oils to use, but when possible I’ve been trying to make things on my own rather than purchasing something that’s often filled with harmful chemicals.
This simple recipe only contains 3 ingredients (see if your current hand sanitizer can say that!) and is far better for your skin and more effective at doing what it’s supposed to do.
DIY THIEVES HAND SANITIZER SPRAY
Ingredients & Supplies
2oz Amber or Blue Glass Bottles with Fine Mist Sprayer
10 drops Thieves Essential Oil (mine is from Young Living)
Kraft Paper Stickers
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
Pour sea salt into glass bottle.
Apply the 10 drops of Thieves essential oil directly on top of the salt. Let it absorb for 5 minutes.
Fill the remainder of the bottle with distilled water. Shake and spray!
How easy was that?!?!
*Note — I purchased my spray bottles at Whole Foods, but they have great affordable options on Amazon as well! As for my kraft paper stickers, this were originally purchased from the Target dollar section, but are no longer available.
The best part about making them in these 2oz bottles is that they’re the perfect size to stash in your handbag, glove compartment, stroller, gym bag, etc. I am that person at the gym who immediately whips out her little sanitizer bottle and gives the machine a nice little spray and wipe down before and after using it. I get a few odd glances my way, but I actually think they’re wishing they had it too!
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
