DIY – hand sanitizer spray quickly made with manuka oil
Here we show you how you can quickly and easily make a DIY hand sanitizer spray from vodka and our essential manuka oil.
Essential Manuka Oil According to many studies, it has antibacterial, antiviral and fungicidal effects. Responsible for this are the contained monoterpenes. I currently use it to disinfect my hands, door handles, telephone, etc. We also "purify" our office air with an aroma lamp that vaporizes the essential manuka oil.
Since manuka oil is very well absorbed through the mucous membranes, I dab a droplet under my nose when I have a cold and let the oil work on it. This is how I prevent the typical "blocked" nose.
Since manuka oil has a very low cineaol content of only 0.17% in the total oil, it is well tolerated by the skin (essential tea tree oil contains 2 to 7% of the skin-irritating cineaol!).
Mix the essential manuka oil with your hand cream: put 1 droplet of manuka oil in the palm of your hand and your hand cream - so you have protection and care in one.
Make your own spray solution: Put 100 ml of vodka with 10 drops of essential manuka oil in a spray bottle and shake vigorously. Since essential oils do not dissolve in water, let's take vodka. But please shake the bottle vigorously before each spraying. To get a different scent and other active ingredients in the room spray, you can add a few drops of the following essential oils: lemon, orange, all coniferous woods, eucalyptus, thyme, peppermint - just try it out!
Manuka honey with an MGO value of 100+ can be sucked from a teaspoon for sore throats and pharyngitis. To soothe a cough, best stir in warm (not hot!) tea or milk and sip.
Add 10 drops of essential manuka oil and a small dash of washing-up liquid to two liters of warm water. With this solution you can, for example, clean the refrigerator, freezer, doorknobs, shelves, etc. intensively.
