1. I have made and used a variety of hand sanitizer formulas over the years, and by far, this is my favorite. When our family eats out, we pass the spray around the table after handling the menus. Almost without fail the server will make favorable comments on the aroma :-) - Linda
2. This is my favorite hand sanitizer. I spray our hands but also public toilet seats and shopping cart handles. I give it as gifts to my family, and they love it as well. - Sherri
3. I waited on a table one night and was so drawn by the aroma I smelled there. I asked if the family used essential oils, and they showed me their bottle of Citrus Quench hand sanitizer. I loved it, and they gave it to me! I'm getting bottles to give away for gifts! - Cindi
4% dilution is considered a safe range to avoid skin irritation issues and/or photosensitization issues with Grapefruit and Lemon.
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil." We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
