Making your own hand sanitizer is easier than you may think. In fact, you only need three ingredients to whip up a batch of hand sanitizer at home.

To make your own hand sanitizer, you’ll need:

The type of essential oils you choose to use will depend on your tastes and needs. In this simple DIY adult hand sanitizer recipe, I used lavender oil for the scent and tea tree oil for its antibacterial qualities.

I suggest sticking with tea tree oil in your hand sanitizer recipe and swapping out lavender for any scent of your choice.

Other great options could include:

Whichever scent you choose, keep the number of drops the same as my recipe for the perfect combination of oils in your DIY adult hand sanitizer.

To make your own hand sanitizer for this easy gift idea, start by whisking together your alcohol and aloe vera gel in a small bowl.

Continue whisking until the two ingredients are well combined and the gel is a smooth consistency.

Then, add the essential oils to the mix and whisk again to incorporate the oils into the gel.

After making the DIY adult hand sanitizer recipe, it’s time to package it into a cute handmade gift. The first step is to place your homemade hand sanitizer into a cute container.

My simple handmade gift is packaged in a small jelly jar, but there are several different ways you can package your own hand sanitizer, like:

After you have placed your hand sanitizer in a cute container, print out my free printable gift tag on heavy cardstock.

Cut the tag out around the outer border and attach it to your gift.

You can secure the tag directly on the jar or punch a hole in the top and thread a piece of ribbon through.

Tie the ribbon to your hand sanitizer gift to finish decorating the present.

Then give it your favorite person to help them stay healthy all year long!
