Hand sanitizers that depend on essential oils for efficacy kill 99.99 percent of germs without chemicals or alcohol. In fact, you can make your own hand sanitizer with a blend of cinnamon, eucalyptus and other essential oils. When assessing non-natural hand sanitizers, it's important be aware of ingredients like Triclosan and Benzalknonium Chloride, which, ironically, have resulted in the growth of antibacterial-resistant strains of bacteria. A better bet is a natural sanitizer with an alcohol base; just make sure that you keep them away from children as they can be extremely toxic if ingested."
