Unless you’ve been living under a rock you are probably well acquainted with all of the precautions you need to take to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

However…

While washing your hands for 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer is great for your immunity,  it will rip the skin on your hands apart!

Make sure you are also carrying a shea butter hand cream. One of my favorites is Farmhouse Fresh. It comes in a variety of scents, including the ever popular “Whoopie Pie” that smells just like a yummy dessert!

If your local store is out of hand sanitizer and you weren’t able to hoard your own stash, you may want to make your own!

This recipe is even better than most commercial bottles because you can make it smell the way YOU want it to!

~2/3 Cup of rubbing alcohol 60% or or higher

~1/3 cup of aloe vera gel

~a dash of Vitamin E to help hydrate the skin

~Your own selection of essential oils to make it your own (just a few drops)
Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl and put in any bottle you choose. Change up the scents as you like.

Be the envy of all of your friends with your very own custom sanitizer!
