Natural Hand sanitizer

We’re experiencing a time when hand sanitizer is in high demand. Most of these contain alcohol which can be extremely drying to the skin. There is a great and natural alternative to purchasing these sanitizers and the neat part is that you can also not only use them in your home, but they work great to put outside the chicken run. Putting the mixture in a cool mason jar with a pump and making a wooden holder for it works out great!

To make this natural sanitizer you’ll need the following:

  • 6 oz aloe vera gel
  • 1 tablespoon liquid vitamin E
  • 6 oz witch hazel
  • You’ll want to add 30-40 drops of whatever essential oils you like. Below is a list of different essential oils and their benefits.
  • Lemongrass protects against staph
  • Basil protects against E. coli
  • Thyme protects against staph
  • Cinnamon protects against both staph and E. coli
  • Lavender protects against staph
  • Peppermint protects against E. coli and salmonella
  • Sage protects against salmonella
