I’ve been hearing all these wonderful things about Witch Hazel (<—this link gives 12 wonderful uses for witch hazel) so I decided to get some. Someone shared a post on making homemade hand sanitizer so I thought I would give it a shot. I love it! It is so moist and doesn’t dry out your skin like a lot of the alcohol based sanitizers seem to do.
Here is the recipe I used. I also added a few drops of Tea Tree oil as well. I used lavender essential oil in mine and since Maddie doesn’t like lavender I used orange essential oil in hers. I just need to get some cute little bottles but for now I am storing it in an old jelly jar.
I got the recipe from The Greenbacks Gals Their link also explains how it works.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 4 oz Aloe Vera Gel
- 1/2 T Witch Hazel
- 1 Vitamin E Capsule
- Lavender Essential Oil
Hope you enjoy!!
