DIY Hand Sanitiser Spray


You'll also need 2 or more 10ml glass spray bottles, a small funnel, and a medium mason jar for mixing and storing. The idea here is to make about a cup of this mixture and once your spray bottle is low, refill! About the alcohol content It is important to understand the alcohol content of the substance you are using as this will affect the alcohol percentage of the final product. The World Health Organisation recommends at least 60% alcohol to protect against germs. Options are:  
  • Pure Ethanol made from sugar cane – often 95% alcohol, 5% water. Most natural option but difficult to come by.
  • Ethanol (Denatured) - will contain a synthetic chemical as the denaturing agent to make it taste bitter.
  • Ethyl alcohol – the alcohol found in alcoholic drinks such as beer, brandy, or whiskey. See note below on vodka.
  • Isopropyl alcohol - as purchased in pharmacies (check the alcphol %)


  1. Combine the ingredients in a mason jar and shake well.
  2. Using your funnel or a very steady hand, fill the spray bottles. Keep the remainder in the mason jar until you need to refill.

How to Use

Shake well, spray onto hands and rub them together. Use plenty to cover all the surfaces of your hands. Rub around hands until dry. Keep out of sunlight in a cool dry place. Use within 6 months.


As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you'd hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off'.

Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient's potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you've made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
