How to Make doTERRA On Guard Hand Sanitizing Mist Spray
The doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist is the perfect product for on-the-go hand sanitizing. If you run out before you have the chance to order more, no worries, it's pretty easy to make yourself and only takes a minute.
What is doTERRA On Guard Hand Sanitizing Mist Spray?
Germs, bugs, microbes, bacteria—no matter what you call them, they’re everywhere. They can be found living on our skin, cell phones, keyboards, door handles, and elsewhere.
The manual removal of bacteria using soap and warm water is still the number one defense mechanism against bacteria and germs that make us sick. At times, we may not have access to soap and water, so a portable, easy-to-carry sanitizer can often come in handy.
What Makes it Unique?
By incorporating essential oils, alcohol, and moisturizing agents, doTERRA On Guard Hand Sanitizing Mist is a quick-drying antiseptic spray that also helps hydrate the skin.
The doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend is used in the sanitizing mist and it's made up of the following essential oils:
The essential oils give this sanitizing mist its uplifting, bright, and spicy aroma. In addition, the constituents found in many of these oils and the oils themselves have been shown to have surface cleansing properties.
Ethyl alcohol is what gives this mist its sanitizing properties, killing 99.9 percent of germs. It does this by clumping and denaturing important bacterial proteins, eventually causing these harmful cells to burst open.
While other hand sanitizers may feel harsh on the skin and leave it feeling dry, doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist includes apple fruit extract to moisturize and hydrate the hands, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
