Make Your Own Organic Hand Sanitizer Gel

Fall is fast approaching and that means cold and flu season is also around the corner. Are you dreading the constant use of hand sanitizer gels filled with synthetic fragrances, artificial coloring agents, petroleum derivatives and other questionable preservatives?

Essential oils have been proven effective to kill MRSA, H1N1 and other bacteria and viruses and have been used medicinally for thousands of years. We would like to share an effective, organic alternative that you can make at home and carry with you. It is perfectly safe for use by small children and since you only use a few drops of Essential Oils per bottle, its quite cost effective as well.

Miessence Essential Oils



  • 4-5 drops Organic Tea Tree Oil – a great antibacterial, antiseptic, antibiotic and antiviral essential oil
  • Fill the container with 2 parts organic aloe gel (NOT juice)
  • And 1 part filtered water (NOT tap)


After adding the ingredients, gently shake your bottle to mix. Use whenever soap and water are not available.

I have a question about the organic sanitizer recipe. What size container is this recipe for?

Hello Elaine,
I used a 6 oz bottle. You can use anything you have… scale up or down a drop or two on the essential oils. The other ingredients are proportionate to any container. Let me know if you have questions.
