How to prevent coronavirus with hand sanitizer: How to make your own

How to make your own hand sanitizer for the prevention of coronavirus
As it is well known that hand sanitizer is sold out at stores across the nation, shoppers are not waiting for shelves to be restocked and are turning to the web to learn how to make homemade versions recently.

As the outbreak of the deadly and injurious coronavirus continues, demand for basic sanitary items namely: hand sanitizer, is increasing alongside  with it. Hand sanitizer is sold out at stores across the country over the weekend, thereby leading people to turn to the web in search of it — only to find the product was largely unavailable there as well or being offered at a costly or unaffordable price.

Health professionals continue to stress that proper hand-washing is the best way to prevent viruses such as the deadly coronavirus. But if soap and water aren’t available then hand sanitizer is the next best option if it contains at least 60 percent alcohol, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says.
Can’t you find hand sanitizer to purchase? Don’t fret because you can make your own.
Anne Marie Helmenstine a scientist who holds a Ph.D in biomedical sciences recently shared how to make homemade hand sanitizer.

2/3 cups 99% rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or ethanol,
1/3 cup aloe vera gel
8-10 drops of essential oil, optional (such as lavender, vanilla, peppermint, grapefruit)
Bowl and spoon
Recycled liquid soap or hand sanitizer bottle
