DIY hand sanitizer

When you’re traveling, anti-bacterial hand washes are great to have because more often than not, you’re eating on the run. My good friend D. over at Less is More Balanced has come up with a recipe to make your own hand sanitizer which not only smells amazing and really works, but also is a genius way to keep all those little bottles out of the landfills.
Make a solution of 60% of alcohol and 40% distilled water and then add a dash of your favorite essential oil. Peppermint smells amazing, but I’m sure any oil would work just as well. Since it is liquid, you will want to put it in an atomizer or spray bottle (I like the one’s sold by Muji) because that will make application easier.
