CBD Home Hand Sanitizer

In these uncertain times our health and hygiene has never been more important in order to try and fight the spread of this terrible virus. From self-isolation, to quarantine, social distancing – things are changing and this is a sign that they must continue well past the Coronavirus (COVID-19) times.

We are being told to wash our hands on a regular basis, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. This has been proven the best way to maintain your hygiene but if this is not available then a good quality hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol is the next best thing. But with the low supply and ridiculous cost of hand sanitizers, if like us you are in lock down, you have some time to make your own and save some cash!

But why are we adding out CBD oil to hand sanitizers? Studies are under way at the moment on CBD (cannabidiol) that are showing CBD has an amazing ability of killing a wide range of gram-positive bacteria. COVID-19 of course is a virus rather than a bacterium, but is an excellent additive to your home sanitizer to give an anti-bacterial boost.

Using isopropyl alcohol is a very common disinfectant in pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and clean rooms. You should be able to find it in a hardware store. Between the concentration of 60%-90% isopropyl alcohol is very effective against microbial bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Home Hand Sanitizer Recipe:

2 parts - 60% to 90% Isopropyl Alcohol

1 part - 100% pure Aloe Vera Gel (from live plant or store bought)

4 full 1mL Droppers of Platinum edition CBD oil

Mix ingredients well in a clean bowl and transfer into a clean empty hand-sanitizer or travel bottle that be can bought even in Dealz these days.




Hand sanitizer recipes are intended for use by professionals with the necessary expertise and resources for safe creation and proper utilization.

Only use homemade hand sanitizers in extreme situations when handwashing isn’t available for the foreseeable future.

Don’t use homemade hand sanitizers on children’s skin as they may be more prone to use them improperly, leading to a greater risk of injury.
