Germs are everywhere. Bacteria lurks on the surface of your keyboard, in the air we breathe and in the water we drink. Though most germs are harmless because our bodies immune systems protect us from these tiny organisms, it is still important to practice healthy habits- especially hand washing.

When you can’t wash your hands, be sure to keep a healthy hand sanitizer in your bag. A healthy, natural option is Burt’s Bees Aloe and Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer. Burt’s Bees Aloe and Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer combines ethyl alcohol, aloe vera and witch hazel to kill germs and soften hands. Witch hazel is used as an herbal remedy to cleanse skin. Witch Hazel also contains flavonoids, which contribute to its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties.

For centuries, aloe vera has been used as a home remedy to heal wounds and various skin conditions. Aloe vera contains 18 amino acids all of which strengthen its healing capabilities. One of its many uses is to soothe sunburned skin.     

Burt’s Bees Aloe and Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer is an all-natural product, which means it does not contain any synthetic or petrochemical ingredients. Burt’s Bees Aloe and Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer costs $5 for a 2 fl. oz bottle. It is available online and can also be purchased at Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens and Whole Foods.
