Keep germs away with this DIY Hand Sanitizer Spray and these fun colorful labels! Use your favorite essential oils for a fun seasonal gift!
Okay ya’ll, tis the season as they say… for germs and colds and all the germs. So, you know… wash your hands, catch your cough in your elbow, take some zinc. BUT if you’re like me, washing your hands may be a little harder to do when you’re wrangling kids who are also sneezing and all that grossness. My solution? I carry DIY Hand Sanitizer Spray with me everywhere. I taught the kids how to use it too!
MAKE IT: Mix Up an Easy DIY Sugar Scrub
I learned how to make this at Craftcation from the lovely Joan Godspeed from Break N Remake – Go check out her YouTube for some seriously awesome sustainable DIYS! – And I wanted to add a bit of Do It Your Freaking Self to it, so I created these ridiculously sassy labels to adhere to the bottles. Wanna make your own? Let’s get started!

MAKE YOUR HAND SANITIZER
I got these 3oz spray bottles from the target travel section and they’re absolutely perfect. You can also buy some from amazon, just look for 2-3 oz bottles.
Fill up your spray bottle about 2/3 of the way up with rubbing alcohol.
Add 2-3 drops each of glycerin, essential oils and vanilla extract.
Fill the rest of the bottle up with filtered water.
Add the cap and shake!

ADD YOUR LABELS
Print the labels on sticker paper or full sheet labels. I printed these at 85% to fit a 3oz bottle. You can decrease your print size for smaller bottles too.
Cut the labels out and apply to your bottle, grey tab first.
And voila! Keep those germs the FUNK away! You can also add a strip of clear packing tape around the label to keep it waterproof. Enjoy!!!
