Effective, protective and aromatically uplifting. Spritz on hands and surfaces as frequently as required to eliminate all manner of germs, leaving nothing but the sweet scent of Australian peppermint, blue mallee eucalyptus and mandarin.
Scented with all natural essential oils and produced as per the WHO recommended formula with 75% pure (99%) isopropyl alcohol. Enriched with locally grown aloe vera to care for dry skin. For best efficacy be sure to rub well between hands after spraying and allow to dry.
FLAMMABLE, as alcohol is - keep away from heat, open flames and unsupervised children/pets. For external use only, avoid contact with eyes.
After the pandemic hit, small business owners like myself were required to have a COVID Safe plan, in order to trade at markets. One point on this was the requirement to provide and encourage the use of sanitiser, so, being me, I looked up how to make it myself. So many of you complimented me on the smell and feel of my sanitiser spray that I (finally) figured I'd make it available here. Throughout the pandemic I've been thinking about how our lives will look different once we're all vaccinated and out of this, and I think sanitising is here to stay.
Having never been one to sanitise with an alcohol rub or spray myself, I've now discovered the many non-covid related uses for carrying this with me. Super useful for cleaning hands on beach/street litter clean-up walks, or after enjoying that sugary / greasy / messy treat where there is no bathroom nearby. Also great for cleaning glass and mirrored surfaces without leaving any streaks!
CHECK THE INGREDIENTS!
isopropyl alcohol 99%, aqua, aloe barbadensis, essential oils: mentha piperita (peppermint), citrus reticulata (mandarin) and eucalyptus poybractea (blue mallee).
Once empty - KEEP THE BOTTLE! You can return it for a $2 refill discount (check out the 'important to note' page to find out how) or alternatively find a way to repurpose or recycle it. Glass is infinitely recyclable, and the label is completely biodegradable paper with non-toxic, plant-based inks and adhesives.
Order the 'aluminium screw top' option if restocking and you can simply remove the screw top, recycle (inside a bigger piece of aluminium like a ball of foil or a tinnie) and pop your old pump top in the new bottle to save a little plastic from landfill. The pump tops unfortunately cannot be recycled, the glass absolutely can.
$1 for every bottle sold goes to support the work of Beyond Blue, Australia's most visited mental health support service. Their number is 1300 22 4636. If you're struggling at the moment, you really are not alone, and there are some great people offering free help you can access. Reaching out may just well be the thing to break the cycle of depression / despair / isolation.
Take care of you x
