Whisk in your essential oils.

(I've chosen essential oils that are shown to be safe for children. Please, check online guidelines for the safe ratio of essential oils to carrier oils recommended for the age of your little one)

If you're making this for adults, you can double the amount of essential oils in this recipe.

Step 4: Pour your gel sanitizer into a bottle.

Take your funnel and add the mixture into your bottle. Try to stop adding once you get about ½” from the top of the bottle. Once this is done, screw the lid tightly and attach a label to the bottle with glue!
