what is in natural hand sanitizer spray
On Guard essential oil: Supports healthy immune and respiratory function. Protects against environmental threats and supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses. Energizing and uplifting aroma.
Lemon essential oil: Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces, and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home.
Witch Hazel: Contains antioxidants which fight free radicals. Extracted from the Witch Hazel shrub, it is an effective natural cleanser. Alcohol-free but contains Aloe Vera, so your hands stay moisturized.
Fractionated Coconut Oil: an absorbent and light carrier oil that will help to increase essential oil distribution while leaving skin feeling smooth and soft. (You can also use Vitamin E Oil as it’s an antioxidant).
Distilled water (or Filtered Water): Best option for the cleanest hand sanitizer possible is distilled but filtered water is a close second because it doesn’t contain minerals found in tap water.
Glass Spray Bottle: Does not leach into essential oils like plastic does.
