INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Many people are having trouble finding hand sanitizer in stores due to an increased demand because of the coronavirus.

But good news—you can make your own supply in just a few easy steps.

The main ingredient is two-thirds cup rubbing alcohol. Make sure you get rubbing alcohol that is 91% or higher.

Then add one-third cup aloe vera gel, and finally add five drops of an essential oil to the bowl if you want to add a scent.
