  • 1 ounce of the plastic flip-top bottle

  • My Christmas Special: Fir Needle, peppermint and vanilla absolute (Fir needle reminds me of the Christmas tree smell so why not bring in the old memories at home?)
  • Fresh: There is no other blend that brings fresh scent every time you sanitize than lemon, eucalyptus, and peppermint.
  • Presence of Mind: I call it that because these essential oils encourage focus! If you feel you need it, try cedarwood and sandalwood. 
  • Sneezy: Do you have a sensitive family member? I have one. However, she does not seem to sneeze when using this blend. Try lavender essential oil for a sweet scent, or lemon and peppermint will do. 
  • Smile: Anything that makes you happy is worth the try, even for hand sanitizers. The mixture of grapefruit and vanilla absolute is excellent. You want to try and find out if it makes you feel in a good mood? 
  • Goodnight: Do you know that Roman chamomile and lavender are essential oils that encourage drowsiness? Then it would be a good idea to use your hand sanitizer blend of these essential oils at night. 
  • Healthy: It is funny when I use my hand sanitizer mix out of ginger, clove, rosemary, tarragon, anise, and fennel essential oils. These oils mean to boost your immune system. Hence, if this helps, I might as well use them when I am not feeling okay. I make my hand sanitizers, so I can make as much as I can, and use what I like, anytime!
