DIY: Homemade Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap

DIY: Homemade Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap

Let’s face it, life on a farm while often idyllic is messy.  There’s mud, dirt and dust, chicken and horse manure.  I am in and out of the house all day long and most times my hands are dirty when I come in the house.  And much as we love our furry and feathered friends, the reality is that germs and disease can be easily transmitted from them through poor hygiene, so I am always washing my hands.

I love the idea of anti-bacterial soaps but worry about the commercial soaps because of the health warnings, so I decided to try making my own anti-bacterial hand soap. It turned out to be far easier than I imagined.  I used tea tree oil, lavender and citrus essential oils, which all have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, as well as some Vitamin E for soft skin.

    I just love the DIY antibacterial! My question is where did you get the pump top for your mason jar? I love mason jars and use them for just about everything you can imagine and would love to get a top like that. Thank you!

    I love this recipe! I made it as a gift and it is loved by all.
    I make my own dispenser tops for canning jars. I save the pumps from shampoo and conditioner bottles, Drill a hole in the canning lid so it fits tight. Gravity hold it in.
