Homemade Natural Hand Sanitizer
My Version Of Purrell But Better!
It is that time of the year and the flu season is here once again!
I felt that in leu of the holidays and flu season being among us that I would put out this post about hand sanitizers and provide a recipe to make your own.
The hand sanitizers out in the stores are effective for their intended purpose which is to reduce the bacteria and viruses that come into contact with the skin or your hands.
I am a firm believer that everything you apply to your skin is absorbed from the skin into the body from there.
The ingredients that are in the conventional hand sanitzers are active ingredients and non-active ingredients.
Yes they do their job but some nonactive ingredients that are there to preserve the solution and thicken it may also be harmful to the body.
This got me thinking, what is the ingredients in hand sanitizers and than how can I take the main ingredients in it and make my own homemade natural hand sanitizers?
By all means I am not telling anyone who needs a flu shot to not get the flu shot, please do get one if you need one – Elderly folks, young children and immune compromised people are the people who should definitely be encouraged to get their flu shot.
And anyone else, talk with your doctor about the flu shot it will help to provide protection against this years strands that are out there.
I am a whole hearted believer of washing hands and sanitizers should never replace hand washing especially if the hands are visibly soiled or dirty.
But if you are somewhere or in a situation where you do not have access to a sink, running warm water and soap sanitizers is the next best option.
Wash your hands, but if you cannot sanitize.
Why not feel a bit better about using sanitizers when needed?
