All Natural Homemade Thieves Hand Purifier
Thieves® essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.
With the benefits of Thieves oil including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Looking to make your home smell as clean as it looks? Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.
- 100% aloe vera gel (this is the base and is soothing to the skin)
- 1 tablespoon witch hazel (helps heal skin and fight bacteria)
- 1/8 teaspoon Vitamin E oil (helps preserve the purifier and is great for skin)
- 7 drops Thieves essential oil (see above)
- 3 drops Lemon Essential Oil
Combine the aloe vera gel, water, vitamin E oil, and Thieves oil in a bowl. Transfer to 2 oz. squeeze bottle(s) using a funnel. Alternatively, you can get small bottles of aloe (like these ones), take a little out of each and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake before each use and apply as needed (no water necessary). I usually make several bottles at once and give them as gifts to teachers, friends and my kids to carry in their backpacks. This is a great, natural alternative to other hand sanitizers.
