You can avoid the price gouging that is going on by making your own.
I believe we should all be prepared but not overreact. Since supplies are running short all around the country, here is my tried and true personal recipe for flu and cold season.
(I'd added links for your convenience. They are my affiliate links, where I'll receive a few cents for every purchase made through the link.)
Don't panic. You can easily make your own germ killing spray for your hands and for surfaces with this recipe:
You'll need witch hazel, vodka, mugwort essential oil, thyme essential oil, and lemongrass essential oil.
In jar, combine 1 cup of witch hazel with 1 cup of cheap vodka.
Shake to mix.
Add 10 drops of mugwort essential oil.
Add 10 drops of thyme essential oil.
Add 15 drops of lemongrass essential oil.
Pour into spray bottles for hand sanitizer or a room and surface disinfectant spray. Use as needed.
Mugwort will continue to kill anything that touches it. It kills viruses long after it has been sprayed. I've used mugwort essential oil in my own cleaning products for almost a decade.
Thyme will kill any bacteria or virus upon touching it. This is why thyme is so effective in steams for colds and coughs. (That recipe and directions is upcoming.)
Lemongrass smells incredible and also has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
Vodka kills all germs upon contact the same way bleach does, but without the harmful reaction to the skin.
Witch hazel also kills all germs upon contact but is safer for the skin than vodka.
