DIY, All-Natural Hand Cleaner

DIY, all-natural hand sanitizer made with doTERRA On Guard essential oil | Thriving HomeAhh… I’m totally bummed. 

Reason I’m bummed is because you’ve come to this page in hopes of finding a recipe for an all-natural hand cleaner, right?

Well, not long ago it was here. 

But now it’s not. 

Because of some new rules in place, I’m no longer allowed to share exactly what I use to make this stuff. 

So frustrating, right? 

If you want to know more about the oils I do use, please swing by my essential oils for beginner’s post. 

Alas, here is the recipe–minus the key ingredient you need to make the hand-cleaner. .

Homemade Hand Cleaner


  • 4 ounce glass spray bottle. (You can get these for less than a dollar here)
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera
  • Water
  • 20 drops Essential Oil Blend


Mix the aloe vera with the essential oils. Put mixture in the bottle and then fill the bottle with water. Use as needed!

    Whoa, an all-natural hand-sanitizer? This is a game-changer! I’ve been looking (fruitlessly) for years since my husband hates everything about the commercial stuff and we don’t use it on our toddler either. Definitely going to try this recipe. Question: does the spray bottle have to be glass, for any reason?
