    • MYO: Waterless Hand Sanitizer

      Hand sanitizer is a must-have item to keep in your purse for quickie clean-ups and refreshing the hands, particularly after using public areas. Here is a simple, no frills recipe for homemade hand sanitizer that smells good and wont dry out your skin.

      1 cup aloe vera gel
      2 Tbs Rubbing alcohol
      2 tsp. vegetable glycerin
      6-8 drops Eucalyptus or Tea Tree Essential oil*

      Blend well. Use as you would commercial hand sanitizer. In addition to the rubbing alcohol's germ fighting capabilities, both Tea-Tree & Eucalyptus oils contain antibacterial properties as well.

      *Not Fragrance Oil!

        Could you use Lavendar essential oil since it's antibacterial also? I like the smell better.

      A nice touch for privacy is a hula hoop with a shower curtain attached with rings and hung from a low branch of a tree. It works around a one ring baby swim pool for bathing privacy as well.
