Making Your Own Non Toxic Hand Sanitizer
I am going to show you how I make an excellent “Non Toxic Hand Sanitizer”. This is a replacement for the very toxic hand sanitizers we are all being forced, or recommended, to use when we go into any buildings or place of business.
Most of us have no idea what toxic ingredients are in the hand sanitizers. You would think since the sanitizing product claims to clean or disinfect your hands from germs and other pathogens, that it would be safe for you and your family to use.
We are forced to follow the guidelines mostly all around the world from the recommendations from the elected scientists and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). The story is that the current virus is a worldwide pandemic, causing most of the economy from all around the world to be halted to an abrupt stop.
Most of the world have many new rules to follow such as “Social Distancing” 6ft apart, home quarantine, no schools, conventions, personal or religious gatherings, mask wearing, curfew in some areas, rioting/protesting and the use of hand sanitizers in every business or gathering you want go into. These are some of the alleged recommendations that have been handed down to most of the world, and given for us to follow in order to slow down the infection and death rate.
I do not agree with using toxic hand sanitizers with antibiotics, chemical perfumes or smells, isopropyl toxic alcohol, parabens and many other synthetic chemicals added to your conventional hand sanitizers. Our Non Toxic Hand Sanitizer is very easy to make, and if you need to use a hand sanitizer you must make your own if you really want it completely non toxic.
Remember, the skin can absorb just anything that you rub into it!
Toxic Hand Sanitizers
Almost all commercially made hand sanitizers are loaded with a variety of toxins, chemicals, residues from synthetic molecules, toxic alcohol that can lead to cracking of the skin, antibiotics to lower the immune system, fragrances made of hundreds of synthetic chemicals, petrochemicals coming from crude oil, to name a few of the toxins, and endocrine disruptors that are commonly found in most of the commercial grade hand sanitizers.

Is Hand Sanitizer An Endocrine Disruptor?
“You use hand sanitizer to keep dangerous germs out, but you’re really inviting toxic chemicals in. Research proves that the active ingredient in hand sanitizer is an endocrine disruptor(1), easily absorbed through your skin, and might be linked to cancer.” – src: HEALTH DANGERS OF HAND SANITIZERS – Upper Cervical Maine
Are Fragrant Chemicals As Toxic As Secondary Cigarette Smoke?
Most people think of a smell, as not synthetic but some kind of natural smell from maybe a flower oil, herb oils or derived from a plant of some kind.
Over the last 40 years, fragrance chemicals have been introduced into every market imaginable from underarm deodorants, laundry and dish detergents, shampoos and conditioners, skin lotions, sunscreens, perfumes, home and car air fresheners, aftershaves, tampons, deodorants, foods and drink that contain synthetic flavors and of course, even your hand sanitizer could have many toxic chemicals in them.
When you can smell the synthetic perfume you are actually breathing, the outgassing of very tiny particles of the chemical fragrance from the product into your nose, lungs then into the body.
These non natural smells are tricking your senses, in fact, they could be made up of hundreds of different chemicals to create the desired smell for the product.
Young children are very susceptible and sensitive to these endocrine disrupting (hormone disrupting) toxins in their little bodies, that accumulate with age and repeated use.
My recommendation is to reduce your exposure as much as you can from all toxic synthetic fragrances and scents in all products in your house and lifestyle.
Second Hand Fragrances (smoke)
When we go to public places we are all sharing the same air. The air now is like second hand smoke, but this invisible smoke is not coming from cigarettes or cigars – it’s coming from all of the synthetic fragrances people are wearing or using such as: perfumes, aftershaves, air fresheners, cleaning products, scented candles and incense, hair spray, soaps that have chemical fragrances, shampoos, detergents which are all off-gassing synthetic chemicals in the air and causing many people to have allergies.
When I go on hikes in the mountains, and when other hikers pass by me or we cross each other’s paths, I can smell all of the toxic products they are wearing and using including their scented underarm deodorant.
People are off-gassing all of these toxic fragrance chemicals in the workplace and at home with family, as well as while socializing in larger groups – all off gassing their toxicity to one another unknowingly.
These fake synthetic fragrances give me a headache immediately, and are very repulsive to my senses.
Again, when you smell these chemicals in the air, you are absorbing micro sized invisible molecules of the chemical synthetic fragrances.
Consistent daily exposure could be a grand hidden assault to your endocrine or hormonal system. Many peoples symptoms from breathing these chemical scents are complaints with sinus mucus and pressure, red eyes or itchy eyes, dripping nose, sneezing, skin rash, etc.
So, rubbing on these fake scents/perfumes/fragrances on our hands several times a day, will be giving us a slow accumulation of many of the chemicals being absorbed transdermally through our skin and respiratory tracts.

Only use organic or steam distilled essential oils for all of your scents you wish to use in your house or on your person. Non organic essential oils are usually broken down by toxic petrochemicals instead of using a steam distilled method.
Read the labels of the products you are using and upgrade to non scented products, or one that has only added organic essential oils.
Toxic chemicals are in many of the products that we buy (or told to use) such as the hand sanitizers we are using. If your hand sanitizer is scented, it is probably loaded with toxic synthetic chemicals.
Companies do not have to disclose the ingredients that make up the toxic secret scent recipes, and can be a combination of one of the 5000+ chemical scents companies use.
Most hand sanitizers contain phthalates, which are found to be endocrine disruptors that mimic certain hormones, mainly estrogen, and can alter genital development.
“Toxic effects of the easily avoidable phthalates and parabens. … Parabens, which can be dermally absorbed, are present in many cosmetic products, including antiperspirants. Their estrogenicity and tissue presence are a cause for concern regarding breast cancer.” – src: Toxic effects of the easily avoidable phthalates and parabens.
Ethyl Rubbing Alcohol And Isopropyl Alcohol
Isopropyl alcohol is mainly used in hand sanitizers up to 60-90%. The alcohol is the main killing or disinfectant in the hand sanitizer.
We are going to exchange the toxic alcohol for an alcohol that is used for drinking. The reason why we are using a 3-6 times distilled vodka as our base, is because it is not toxic to the skin as the other alcohols used in hand sanitizers.
Isopropyl alcohol, when used over and over again like hand sanitizers are used, can eventually dry the skin and be very corrosive, causing the skin to crack and flake.
How Toxic Is Isopropyl Alcohol And Methanol Used In Hand Sanitizers?
“Consumers who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should seek immediate treatment, which is critical for potential reversal of toxic effects of methanol poisoning,” the FDA wrote on June 19.
“Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death,” the report indicated.

“Mechanism of Toxicity: Isopropyl alcohol is a potent depressant of the CNS, and intoxication by ingestion or inhalation may result in coma and respiratory arrest. It is metabolized to acetone (dimethyl ketone), which may contribute to and prolong CNS depression.” – src: Chapter 89. Isopropyl Alcohol
“Isopropyl alcohol is readily absorbed through the skin, so spilling large amounts of IPA on the skin may cause accidental poisoning. Small amounts of IPA on the skin is generally not dangerous, but repeated skin exposure can cause itching, redness, rash, drying, and cracking. Prolonged skin contact may cause corrosion.” – src: The Dangers of Isopropyl Alcohol
Is Ethyl Rubbing Alcohol The Same As Isopropyl Alcohol?
“They are liquids used primarily as a topical antiseptic. They also have multiple industrial and household uses. The term “rubbing alcohol” in North American English is a general term for either isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) or ethyl alcohol (ethanol) products.” – src: Rubbing alcohol – Wikipedia
Triclosan Is A Wide Spectrum Biocide
“Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent present in some consumer products, including toothpaste, soaps, detergents, toys, and surgical cleaning treatments. It is similar in its uses and mechanism of action to triclocarban.” – src: Triclosan – Wikipedia
Is Triclosan In Hand Sanitizer?
“Triclosan is a popular additive in many consumer products because it kills bacteria. Since the 1950s, it’s been added to hand sanitizers, toothpastes, cookware, gardening tools, clothes, toys, furniture, and even some baby teething products.” – src: Triclosan, A Chemical Found In Hand Sanitizers And Cookware, Linked To Gut Problems In New Mouse Study
Triclosan: Toxic To People And The Environment
“Triclosan tends to bioaccumulate (Samsøe-Petersen 2003), or become more concentrated in the fatty tissues of humans and other animals… A secret study by Colgate scientists revealed exposure to low levels of triclosan caused liver tumors in mice (See 1996).” – src: Pesticide in soap, toothpaste and breast milk – is it kid-safe?: triclosan toxicity
Non Toxic Hand Sanitizer Recipe
This recipe just takes a few minutes to make.
- Fill Vodka 3/4 full in 2-4 oz Glass Spray Bottle
- Add 3-5 drops 2% Lugol’s Iodine
- Add 5-10 drops of Clove Oil
- Add 5-10 drops of Lemon Oil
- Add 5-10 drops of Distilled Pine Oil
- Add 5 drops of Liquid Sole Salt
- Add 1 tsp of Castor Bean Oil
Caution: If you choose to use coconut oil, know that if the temperature of the solution goes below 70 degrees, the coco oil will harden and will not work in your spray pump.
Add Distilled Water if you desire to dilute the alcohol concentration.
The higher the alcohol content the more cleaning and disinfecting power the solution will be. I like to use full strength. If I want to have a less potent solution then I add 10% distilled water.
Mix ingredients vigorously together before each use.
I would recommend you look into some of the research studies and articles, to see that your hand sanitizer is not only toxic, but many of the chemicals we are talking about in hand sanitizers are also in many products you are using at home or in the office.
The hand sanitizer we made has many uses other than just cleaning your hands. I keep a bottle in the bathroom to clean the toilet seat or freshen up the air, and I have a bottle in the car or when I go camping and I can’t wash my hands easily. I also use the sanitizer to clean the steering wheel from the work truck when I need to use it 🙂
The solution not only will sanitize your hands, but will also remove grease and grime build up. The castor bean oil I use will also soothe and protect your hands from cracking.
The hand sanitizer recipe is a great gift to give to your family and friends.
