  1. I’m a little confused, doesn’t getting rid of the alcohol remove the sanitizing effects of the sanitizer? O.o

    1. What’s nice about some essential oils is that they are not only anti-bacterial, but also anti-viral, anti-fungal, etc. We use doTERRA essential oils because of their purity and potency (CPTG: Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade). They are actually safe to ingest! They are also very safe for my children =). Thank you for posting this! I’ve been toying with the idea of making my own hand sanitizer gel with pure aloe vera gel, instead of just an on-the-go spray (filtered water and 10 drop EOs for every 1oz water in a glass spray bottle). I just wasn’t sure if I really needed to add anything else to it. Have you tried making a similar verson in a foaming hand soap pump (to put in classrooms, nurseries, etc)?
