Virtual La'au Lapa'au class: Making Aloe Hand Sanitizer w/Kumu Cody Keale
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Let Grace In & other bereaved families for a virtual La'au class.
In Hawaiian medicine, Pule (prayer) is an important part of lā‘au lapa‘au. I was taught that the body cannot fully heal if the spirit is not healed as well. Cody will also be leading with a "though of the day", and we will have an opportunity to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings as a group.
Things you will need if you decide to make your hand sanitizer with Cody:
- Aloe Vera plant or gel. If you are working with a live Aloe Vera plant or a single cut of Aloe Vera, you’ll need to squeeze out about ¼ cup of gel. For this you will need a cutting board, knife and spoon, plus measuring cup
- 3/4 cup Isopropyl alcohol (or high-proof vodka like everclear)
- The essential oil of your choice. 10-15 drops
- 2oz. spray or squeeze bottle to put the sanitizer in. This recipe will yield about 1 cup of sanitizer. The remainder can be stored in a jar for refills.
