DIY Hand Sanitizer Spray

When I first started using essential oils.  I was overwhelmed, a bit weirded out by those oil users so quick to push product in my face

But then I decided to try them.  It couldn’t hurt.

I’d like to say each day, but to be honest it’s probably a few times a week that I try to find an essential oil remedy to replace a less green product.

With it being germ season I really try to make sure little hands stay clean.  And prevent any unnecessary bug from entering our household.  But it’s hard, with kids it’s nearly impossible to keep the germs away.  But with compromised immune systems, and sensitive sensory systems I find that using more green products seem to help overall in our household.

There is reward in mixing up potions and rubs that actually do make a difference.

This quick DIY hand sanitizer spray only takes a few moments and can easily be refilled.

To be completely honest it cuts down a lot on cost.  And appeases my desire to live a more green lifestyle.

I not only use this spray on my hands, but in my car, on grocery carts, door knobs, you name it.  It’s exceptionally versatile for killing germs.

Lastly, orange essential oil is one of my favorites.

The list of benefits for the these three oils exceeds the few bullet points I jotted down.

What I love about Young Living Essential oils is the flexibility to adapt oils to your own personal needs and desires.

It isn’t just about diffusing something that smells great.  There is healing in essential oils.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to pick up a natural remedy from the comfort of your home.  Leaving you to design your potion to best fit your needs?

If you feel like you want to take a leap and give essential oils a chance.  Reach out and join!  You won’t be sorry.

Living a more simple, and green lifestyle has brought me so much peace and happiness.

    1. Thank you! Where I live it’s really dry in the winter so if you don’t have the same issues you could even forego the coconut oil but the added moisture is nice 😊 thank you for reading!
