Disinfecting Hand Gel for Caretakers and Kids

One 4 oz spray bottle of natural, chemical-free disinfecting hand gel


4 oz organic aloe vera gel
4 drops Peppermint essential oil
8 drops Ravintsara essential oil
8 drops Orange essential oil

One 4 oz PET plastic spray bottle

Add oils to the aloe vera gel, shake vigorously to combine.

Apply liberally to hands and rub until
the gel has evaporated. This can be stored in
the fridge and transferred into convenient 1 oz
spray bottles to keep in your purse or diaper
bag for hand sanitizing on the go. Store extra
gel in the fridge if you make a large amount
ahead of time.

Avoid purchasing aloe with extra ingredients.
A small amount of natural preservative is fine.
