My Natural Hand Sanitizer Solutions

Restaurant playgrounds are gross.

Shopping carts are yucky.

The tables out need some cleaning.

And our hands need washing.

Toss the conventional hand sanitizer.

We use this stuff.

It’s OnGuard Sanitizing Mist.

It’s made with Wild Orange, Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary Plus it has Apple water! It does NOT leave your hands dry. It leaves them moisturized and clean – but without the toxins.

OnGuard Sanitizing Mist

We all know the protecting power of doTERRA On Guard essential oil blend and the wonders it does for us in helping our families and homes with environmental threats. Sometimes we’re on the go and wish that doTERRA On Guard could be in a format that’s handy, convenient, and easy to use.

In other words, sometimes we wish we had a sanitizer with the added benefits of doTERRA On Guard CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade® essential oils. Now we have doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist.

doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist purifies hands by eliminating 99.9 percent of bacteria and other germs on the skin through an extremely fine, quick drying mist. Infused with a natural apple extract, the moisturizing formula will not dry out the skin and leaves hands feeling soft and smooth.

doTERRA On Guard blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary CPTG essential oils provides an uplifting citrus spice aroma and its protective benefits. The naturally derived active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, gives the mist antiseptic properties to effectively cleanse hands and prevent the spread of bacteria.

Sanitizing hands with the convenient mist is perfect for traveling, school, work, and on-the-go families.

What it does:

  • Kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria
  • doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend provides an invigorating citrus spice aroma and protects against environmental threats
  • Infused with moisturizing apple extract
  • Cleanses hands when soap and water are unavaliable
  • Convenient size for travel and on-the-go use
  • Use to sanitize hands after touching gym equipment, door handles, and shopping carts

Make Your Own Natural Mist!

I personally prefer doTERRA’s premade mix. It’s convenient and it doesn’t leave my hands dry. This recipe below might leave your hands a little dry and it won’t have bold of a smell profile. Buuut it will still work!


  • High quality mister (glass, stainless steel, or higher quality plastic – recycle your empty OnGuard mist bottle or your Terrashield bottle!)
  • 10-15 drops OnGuard Essential Oil
  • water


Add OnGuard Essential Oil and water to your mister, shake before each use, spray as desired!

Yes it’s that easy and it’s that CHEAP.

10 drops of OnGuard essential oil is $1.36

And I only suggest 10-15 drops so that you have a smell profile! 1 drop, for only about $0.14 will get the cleaning job done! See my Price Per Drop sheet here.

Make Your Own Moisturizing Hand Cleanser


  • stainless steel, glass, or high quality plastic container
  • 1 part aloe vera
  • 1 part water
  • 1 part fractionated coconut oil (FCO) or jojoba oil
  • 10 drops OnGuard Essential Oil


Mix the aloe vera, water, FCO, and essential oils in the container, shake before use, apply as desired.

I still don’t like this option as much as the mist but it’s absolutely an option.

doTERRA Essential Oils

I recommend only one brand of essential oils. Please do not use these tips if you are going to go out and buy the cheapest brands that you can find. When it comes to essential oils, you get what you pay for. There’s hardly any regulation on the essential oil market so you have to do your due diligence when purchasing oils. After research, I fell on doTERRA. DoTERRA holds themself to the highest purity and safety standards on the market -plus they hold themselves to fair trade and sustainability practices.
