To make your own gel alcohol hand sanitizer, everything You need is to rub alcohol and regular aloe vera gel. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand cleansers must contain at least 60% alcohol to be effective. To make sure your hand sanitizer has enough alcohol in it, use rubbing alcohol that is at least 91%. Combine ⅔ cup (160 ml) of the rubbing alcohol with ⅓ cup (80 ml) of aloe vera gel in a bowl and stir the ingredients together with a spoon. Add 10 drops of essential oil if you want your hand sanitizer to have a scent. Then use a funnel to pour your hand sanitizer into a bottle. If you want to use your hand sanitizer, pour a little into the palm and rub the hand sanitizer over your hands until your hands are dry. Washing your hands with soap and water is the most effective way to kill germs, so only use hand sanitizer when you're on the go.
