DIY: Homemade Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer 
It’s easy to make your own hand sanitizer, but what if you want an alcohol-free, all-natural version? With a few common essential oils, you can easily make a homemade one for yourself, as noted by Dr. Lawrence Rosen at MindBodyGreen.P
The blend includes oils with proven anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties and adds aloe vera gel for smoothness. It contains no chemicals or alcohol, which might cause skin irritation, Dr. Rosen says. Here’s his recipe:P
Start with a 4 ounce spray bottle.
Fill it about ¾ full with sterile water.
Add 1 TBSP of aloe vera gel.
Add 10 drops each of cinnamon, clove, rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils.
Add 20 drops of either lemon, orange or grapefruit essential oil – whatever aroma fits your mood.
Place the spray dispenser top on securely and mix thoroughly.
Spray two or three times on your hands and rub together.
Repeat as needed.

You should know, The Wall Street Journal notes that alcohol-free hand sanitizers don’t have enough clinical studies to prove whether they are as effective or more effective than alcohol-based sanitizers. Then again, if you’re making or using an alcohol-based sanitizer, then make sure it has alcohol concentration of at least 60%—anything under that won’t kill microbes, according to The New York Times.
