Try It Tuesday...DIY hand sanitizer

This past weekend I whipped up some hand sanitizer using essential oils and other household items. Super simple so I suppose I should share (couldn't think of anymore "S" words). I'm a little bit of a germophobe and the alcohol in the regular store bought sanitizers were drying my hands out way too much so I thought why not put my oils to use. Each single pure essential oil consists of several natural chemicals which have antibacterial properties. I used lavender because it is my all time favorite "go to oil" for almost every situation, melaleuca (tea tree oil) because it's the most popular antibacterial oil, and On Guard which is an oil blend that kills harmful bacteria, mold and viruses. I'll keep the 1oz. bottle in my purse and I doubled the recipe below to put in a 4oz. bottle to keep in my car.
