In the midst of this outbreak, sanitizer has become a commodity! So much of a commodity that it is literally sold out in most stores! Never fear! doTERRA’s onGuard Sanitizing Mist is truly a pleasure to use AND it is effective, containing the amount of alcohol recommended by the CDC. You can get your onGuard Sanitizing Mist here.
Sometimes, even with the best supply chain, things still get sold out temporarily. If you can’t get your hands on sanitizing mist and need some immediately, don’t go spending hundreds on the Black Market! (Yes, there are actually people out there spending ridiculous amounts of money on tiny amounts of sanitizer…) Just make some yourself! If you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty with a little DIY, here is an effective sanitizer recipe that is pleasantly moisturizing and smells great!
If you can’t get your hands on the Apple Liquid Extract or Liquid Glycerin, don’t worry! You can safely substitute Aloe Vera Juice, Aloe Vera Gel, Fractionated Coconut Oil or Castor Oil for either or both of those ingredients in this recipe.
