3 Healthy Hand Sanitizer Options You Need to Try

3 Healthy Hand Sanitizer Options You Need to Try

It’s flu season, and you know what that means? Germs—everywhere! So, what is the best way to keep those flu and cold viruses at bay? As we become more aware of what we are putting into our bodies, we must also consider what we put on our skin. It’s always a good idea to try healthier, effective alternatives.

Hand sanitizer is a quick and easy way to get instant germ protection in the absence of water. The popularity of this convenient method has made its way into hospital rooms, clinics, and emergency waiting areas across the nation.

Even though I fully support anti-germ awareness in this form, I have found that there are other, non-toxic ways to get the same protection while saving my body from unnecessary chemicals.

Here are some healthier alternatives to try:

Everyone Hand Sanitizer Spray

This hand sanitizer spray by Everyone offers everything you would want in a safe 2 oz. spray bottle. It proudly boasts GMO-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and no synthetic fragrances.

There are other, non-toxic ways to get the same antibacterial protection while saving your body from unnecessary chemicals! Here are 3 to try now!

Make Your Own Sanitizer Wipes

If you’re more of a do-it-yourself gal, then you may prefer this method.

What you will need:

1 ½ C. very warm filtered water
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol
3 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops lemon essential oil
Enough half-sheets of quality paper towels to suit your needs (small batches work best!)
Some form of resealable container


Mix ingredients together in a small, easy-pour bowl making sure the coconut oil is completely dissolved.

Place folded napkins into your choice of container. You can use a resealable plastic bag, a small plastic container with a lid, or if you want something cute to throw into your purse or car. You could even use one of these travel size baby wipe containers.

Slowly pour liquid mixture over the paper towels. Since you will be making small batches and depending on how many paper towels you use, you could separate this into two batches. One for home and one for on the go!

There you have it, friends! Three more health-friendly hand sanitizer options—enjoy!
