DIY moisturizing hand sanitizer from flax


Hand sanitizer for your flu season needs, that is 60% alcohol as recommended by the CDC. The essential oils in this recipe do more than just disguise the scent of the alcohol.  They are also antimicrobial, increasing the strength of this hand sanitizer.




  1. Mix all the ingredients in a glass measuring cup. Use a stick blender to mix the alcohol and aloe gel.  The aloe gel may stiffen and resist mixing if you mix with just a spoon.  Blending it with a stick blender will solve the problem.
  2. Put the mixture into a 2 ounce silicone squeeze bottle.
  3. You can also use a 2 oz. spray bottle. It’s thin enough to work through the sprayer.
  4. Label and date the bottle.
  5. Use as needed


The CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer that is 60% alcohol to kill germs and reduce the spread of Covid-19.  Alcohol is very drying to the skin.  Use a lotion bar after hand sanitizer to keep the skin soft and prevent cracking.
