Last Summer I really started to make more of my own cleaners and natural remedies for chemical-filled household items. I’ve said before, I know I am not even close to getting rid of all the chemicals within my house, but slowly, over time I am working to get rid of more and more. Insert DIY: Clean Hands here
I made this hand cleaner to keep on my kitchen counter. I’m always working on projects and I wash my hands a lot. But I have always been a hand sanitizer person too and I won’t lie, you’ll still find it in my house because I am not a money waster either. So as those items get finished off I just won’t buy more. But I use this often and so do my kids because it is just awesome to have. I keep a big bottle at our lake house because right now we keep the water off in the winter but a girl still needs clean hands, yes?
10 drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
10 drops Frankincense
10 drops On Guard
1 Tbsp Witch Hazel
Top with Water
One of my favorite things about this is that it smells delicious so I don’t feel like I am missing out on all those fun flavors that you find at the lotion store! One scent I look forward to making is Eucalyptus and Spearmint because that combination is awesome! And I recently made more combos so keep an eye out for those posts coming soon!
As you can see, with only 4 actual ingredients this is super easy to make and have on hand! So don’t waste any more time and make some for yourself!
