Looking for a quick way to DIY your own sanitizer (rather than brave the store)? We can help. While there is no substitution for washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds, we have a simple recipe you can make to keep your hands moisturized and clean in-between washing.
What you’ll need:
- Cherry River CBD Aloe Gel (or any other aloe you may have at home)
- 99% Isopropyl Alcohol (can be found in the First Aid aisle at your local grocery store)
- Cherry River Baobab Oil (or Vitamin E oil, or even your favorite lotion!)
- Plant Therapy Germ Fighter Essential Oil Blend (you can use other brands or blend your own as well)
- Measuring instruments: tablespoon (TBSP), teaspoon (tsp)
How to mix:
Add 3 TBSP of aloe to a clean glass bowl.
Add 1 TBSP of isopropyl alcohol.
Add 1 tsp baobab oil.
Add 5 drops of the essential oil blend.
Mix well for approximately 30 seconds.

I’ll stress again: this is NOT a substitute for washing your hands. While we’ve added alcohol to our aloe, it does not meet the 60% alcohol requirement from the CDC to qualify as a sanitizer — it does, however, have cleansing properties, and can keep your hands moisturized in-between hand washing. It can also be bottled and kept in purses or diaper bags for when washing hands isn’t easily accessible.
