‘Tis the Season for cute hairstyles, sports activities, and …….germs! I’m not being negative, just facing reality. School and increased group activities tend to lead to more sharing; sharing in the bad way. I’m all for exposing my kids to general bacteria in an effort to keep their immune system strong, but there are some major sicknesses that I just want no part of. They’re past the stage of putting everything into their mouths, but I would still like to be cautious after visiting certain locations.
Why Make Your Own
So, why make your own hand sanitizer when it’s pretty cheap just to buy some at the store?
The real reasons: healthy ingredients and better scent!
When you make your own, you know exactly what’s in it, no questionable toxic ingredients or ingredients of unknown origin.
I’ve got to mention scent as well. Those store bought hand sanitizers give me an instant headache. I LOVE making my own because I can make it smell however I like. So don’t be afraid to add another essential oil than the ones listed for an aromatherapy touch.
