Travel DIY Sanitizing Spray Tutorial
As travel increases during the holiday season it coincides with cold and flu season so this sanitizing spray helps keep the germs at bay. This tutorial for how to make sanitizer spray is very easy.
Witch hazel is a gentle natural alternative to alcohol and it is used in this recipe. However, if you want the most effective sanitizing spray you can get- the CDC suggests using at least 60% alcohol to help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. So just substitute isopropyl alcohol for witch hazel if you prefer.
Items Needed To Make Sanitizing Spray:
- Small spray bottle (1 -4 ounces will work)
- Distilled Water
- Witch Hazel
- Young Living Clove Essential Oil
- Young Living Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
- Funnel (optional)
How To Make DIY Sanitizing Spray:
Start by grabbing your supplies and head to the kitchen counter.
Grab your spray bottle and add the witch hazel first. Witch hazel actually has quite a few benefits and medicinal properties. You are going to fill your bottle 2/3 of the way up with witch hazel.
Next, you will add your essential oils. Add 5 drops of your Young Living Clove Essential Oil and 5 drops of your Young Living Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil. After you have added those, add 3 drops of your Young Living Lemon Essential Oil and 3 drops of your Peppermint Essential Oil. These Young Living oils have antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties making them great choices for this spray!
Once you have added all your ingredients into your spray bottle, screw the spry top on, give a gentle shake and the DIY sanitizing spray is ready to use! Double or triple the recipe if you have several bottles to fill up.
These make great little stocking stuffers or add-ons to other gifts you might already have. A fun little label would be a nice touch to the front of the bottle as well.
