Question by cutie pie..: can i make a home made hand sanitizer with the use of any herbal plant rather than aloe Vera?
please make your answers simple, I’m just 12, and I need it for a science project..
Answer by boundlessearth The kitchen alone is chock full of stuff that is antibacterial etc.. However Aloe is nice as it has the gel ready to use etc.. Soaking herbs like thyme, oregano, basil, and mints in water, alcohol, or oil base (like olive oil) creates an infusion with active properties. This could be added to a bottle and squirted like dish soap I suppose, would need experimentation. Lastly, rubbing your hands with lemon balm, thyme, etc.. fresh from the garden leaves them smelling fresh & clean. The moisture in the mint/balms is nice for tha hands. Calendula is emollient like aloe and great for skin. Rose petal water is nice, Echincea is strong antibac etc.
