We think you'll be delighted with our new hand spray, Serenissima™, a bona fide Herbaria product in that it's all-natural and scented only with essential oils. You'll love the way your hands smell!
We take 80% grain alcohol and add a unique blend of essential oils, a mixture based on a 15th-century herbal recipe believed to protect folks from the plague. We're not saying Serenissima will stave off the Black Death, but it smells superb from clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. The essential oils, along with moisturizing glycerin, leave hands feeling silky, not dry.
How to Use: Wet one hand completely with about ten sprays. Rub your hands together, covering all surfaces, for 20 seconds.
We cannot call this a hand "sanitizer" even though Serenissima contains, as the CDC specifies, 80% alcohol. The CDC also calls for hydrogen peroxide, but that is not a natural product. The CDC allows no other ingredients besides glycerin and water.
One last bit of technical information. We utilize the same natural grain alcohol we use in our Deodorant, denatured (made unfit for human consumption) with lavender essential oil. The CDC specifies denatured alcohol for use in a sanitizer, but there are dozens of chemicals used to make alcohol foul-tasting and often toxic. We're going with lavender, known and trusted for centuries.
