How to Easily Make a Natural Homemade Antiseptic Soap

How to Easily Make a Natural Homemde Antiseptic Soap

I like to make my own soaps and in the past I already wrote about how to make your own fragrant homemade lavender soap. Due to the popularity of my other post I decided to write another post about how to make your own antiseptic soap.

This is an easy to make antiseptic soap that makes a fantastic hand and body wash because it contains tea tree and thyme essential oils, that have anti fungal and anti bacterial properties. It is also excellent to treat or prevent fungal infections like vaginal yeast infections, athlete’s foot and ringworm.  If you are interested to learn more about the amazing health benefits of tea tree oil, read my other post about the top 5 medicinal uses for tea tree oil.

So why don’t you give it a try and make your own antiseptic soap? You can buy soap molds online and they come in various shapes and sizes such as this beautiful flower mold.

Homemade Antiseptic Soap Recipe

300 g olive oil based soap (Castile soap)
500 ml water
5 tbsp almond oil (or olive/jojoba/avocado oil)
2 tsp tea tree essential oil
30 drops thyme essential oil
4 tbsp dried marigold (calendula) flowers

Great the soap into a glass bowl and add the water. Place the bowl over a pan of boiling water on a low heat (bain-marie) and stir until the soap melts. Add the almond oil, the two essential oils and the dried flowers, and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a soap mold and leave to cool and set. Once set, wrap the soap in greaseproof paper and leave to dry in a cool place.

How to use the soap? wash the affected areas with the soap once or twice a day, or as required. Rinse off well.

Storage – store in a cool dark place wrapped in greaseproof paper. Keeps for up to 1 year.

  1. Thanks for sharing. The tea tree oil in soap also has a fresh, invigorating, clean scent, as compared to any other soap. :)

    The only problem is… you have to be super careful about what essential oil you buy. Almost all those essential oils contain undisclosed super strong amounts of chemical preservatives that are known carcinogens… like parabens for example. So you could be trading Triclosan for something just as bad or worse if you aren’t really diligent about what oil you use. Some people think getting essential oils that say all natural or “no artificial scents” is all you need to do but it’s not. You have to actually scrutinize the company & actually be confident that they are selling you truly pure essential oils without chemical additives. Also, beware when anything you buy as “organic” has “essential oils” or “fragrance” because that is how they slip the parabens in… the chemical stabilizers and preservatives. Most companies don’t want to limit batch sizes, restricting their profit margins, as well as putting short expiration dates on products & taking the risk of having a bunch of products that have gone bad due to sitting on the shelf… it’s all going to eat into their profits, raise their labor costs, and cause them to have to put a lot more thought and planning into their business… not to mention assume some financial risk. That is why most of the so called organic beauty products are fake and use loopholes the FDA enables and supports in order to keep consumers unaware of what they are putting on their bodies. It says a lot about the world we live in when a whole society will perpetuate a practice of rubbing toxic products on little babies just to save themselves some trouble and work and make a little more money… but that is what is happening. So beware…
