Antibacterial soaps are filled with harsh chemicals and can cause more damage than good to our bodies. We use soap to get rid of germs, right? But what if I told you that these soaps were also getting rid of good bacteria that your body needs for optimal health? Overusing antibiotics and antibacterial products are damaging our guts and immune systems. Bring in the essential oils!!
Several essential oils have antibacterial properties and by using them in this hand soap you can still have a soap with antibacterial properties just with our the chemicals.

MY FAVORITE ESSENTIAL OILS TO USE
Lemon is my favorite, especially when I am making a soap for the kitchen. It has a beautiful citrus aroma that makes me think clean. It has cleansing and purifying properties making it perfect to get your hands clean.
Similar to lemon, wild orange also has cleansing and purifying properties. This essential oil also has immune boosting properties and can be used to kill unwanted germs. I love the bright refreshing smell of wild orange and lemon mixed!
Lavender is my favorite essential oil to use when I am making a soap for the bathroom. It has antibacterial properties and is great for sensitive skin. It gives off a calming and relaxing aroma that can promote overall calmness to the body. I like to use a very similar recipe, with lavender, for my kids body wash. Get the full recipe here.
Melaleuca is a great essential oil to use for cleaning and can kill germs and purify the air. Adding melaleuca will make it a powerful cleansing and natural antibacterial soap.
On guard is a blend by doterra known as the protective blend. It is a blend of wild orange, cinnamon, clove, rosemary, and eucalyptus. It is great at protecting the body against environmental threats and boosting the immune system, Adding this essential oil to the hand soap makes it cleansing, purifying, and can support a healthy immune response.
