Battle School Germs With Homemade Hand Sanitizer With Essential Oils

natural hand sanitizer for school germs with essential oils

Let’s face it, back to school means it’s back to our kids being in a petri dish of germs. New germs every day in the classroom, on the playground, in the lunchroom, etc. We have a simple and convenient way (it’s a portable keychain) to help all you parents fight the germs – a homemade hand sanitizer with essential oils. If you want to skip the homemade part of this project, just buy the portable hand sanitizer bottles (with the sanitizer already in it) and customize the bottle with fun stickers! Kids would love to do this for themselves, and make others for friends! Friends don’t let friends spread germs.

Step 1: Make the sanitizer. Mix all the ingredients below together in a bowl.

Ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera  (the clear, non-scented kind, organic and 99% aloe vera is best), 1 cup
  • OnGuard, doTERRA essential oil, 25 drops
  • Water, 1/4 cup (witch hazel works here, too)
  • Vitamin e oil, organic, 1-2 tsp

Step 2: Fill the portable containers with the sanitizer. We did it teaspoonful by teaspoonful. We saved and filled containers that were previously filled with hand sanitizer, but if you buy new bottles, you can use it, or put in another container (and use in the office, or at home), and then fill it.

Step 3: Remove any label from the bottle.

Step 4: Remove the rubber keychain, and add paint and/or fun stickers to the bottle. Happy Planner at Michaels had amazing stickers! It would be fun to use monogram stickers, too.

Step 5: Apply Mod Podge over the sticker design. Repeat once the first layer is dry.

Step 6: Put the rubber keychain back around the bottle, and then attach to your childs backpack, and tell them to use it at school. Obviously it’s not for ingesting, and remind them of that!

On Guard is a doTERRA proprietary blend of oils including Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary that contains protective immune benefits, cleanses hands when soap and water are not available, and kills germs on surfaces in the home. They have an awesome cleaning concentrate that we love, too!
