Have you ever looked at the ingredients in those hand sanitizers?
Well, if you do a quick google of 'hand sanitizer ingredients' it wont be long until you find some info going into detail about some of those ingredients and it isn't good. However I'm here to offer you a non-toxic, cost effective, beautiful smelling SAFE alternative using the doTERRA OnGuard blend.
Here are TWO easy recipes to use instead for germ busting on-the-go!
Which one is for you? Rollerball, spray or maybe both? It really depends on when and how you will use them and just personal preference - both are great!
Recipe #1 - Germ Busting Portable Rollerball
You will need:
Add OnGuard essential oil to your rollerball, I like to use 6-10 drops for an adult. However please use your personal judgment for dilution. Top up with the fractionated coconut oil - voila - you're done! So easy right?!
Uses: Use when you've been out and about touching dirty areas, rails etc in public, great for kids play zones, airports etc I like to do a roll of this blend on my hand and rub my hands together a few times during the day and in particular before eating meals or touching food.
Recipe #2 - DIY Germ Busting Spray
You will need:
Distilled or cooled boiled water
30ml Spray/spritzer bottle - recommend amber or cobalt blue glass
Fill your spray bottle with the water, leave some space at the top. Add OnGuard essential oil to your spray bottle, I like to use 4-5 drops. However please use your personal judgment for dilution. Screw on top so it is secure. Shake before use and you're good to go!
Uses: Use if you are travelling or out and about and want to clean an area. For example you may want to clean a desk, table, shelf, high chair etc. Can also be used on hands before eating the same as the roller.
Both these recipes include the doTERRA OnGuard blend. This is a powerhouse of support throughout winter time and can be used in a range of other ways!
- DIY cleaning
- Wellness Warrior rollerball
- OnGuard Apples
This blend consists of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary Leaf/ Flower essential oils. Clove is nature's most powerful anti-oxidant, it's no wonder it's in this blend - a staple in many households over winter.
