Things may seem a little chaotic right now, and in times of stress I create. I have to keep my hands busy and my mind occupied so DIY has been my form of therapy for years.
This is a perfect time to share my easy DIY hand sanitizer. It’s alcohol free so if you do not have any it’s okay!
This recipe includes Witch Hazel. It can kill bacteria and some studies show the tannins from witch hazel can make plant-based antivirals, which could fight the flu.
Please note according to the CDC soap and water is more effective than hand sanitizers at removing germs from the skin. So please keep washing your hands!
