DIY No More Germ Ease Hand Wipes - OK For Kids

August 25, 2016

Germs. Are. Everywhere. And we’re not just saying that to scare you, but to bring your attention to a troubling trifle. When we learned that there are nearly 22 million school days lost annually due to the common cold, we knew we had to make a change (1). Thus, Germ Ease OK For Kids blend was born, and we believe it’s the next best thing to hand washing. This protective blend of top quality essential oils is a germ-killing machine, meaning more school days and less doctor visits.

    Hi Jennifer! We recommend grain alcohol as it is generally 120-190 proof. This high a proof of alcohol is necessary to preserve and solubilize the oils in water

    Several of your recipes call for grain alcohol. Can I substitute isopropyl alcohol? Is there a particular reason why E.G. uses grain alcohol?
