DIY Antiseptic

There are lots of commercial antiseptic ointments out there, and they are relatively inexpensive, but I’m a DIYer and like to make my own of whatever I can. For a few reasons such as I like Natural products, I like to know what is going in the stuff I eat/use, and commercial products may not always be around for purchase. That’s why this all natural DIY Antiseptic is perfect for my needs. It’s great on minor cuts, abrasions,  and scrapes to help them heal.

The science behind this recipe is simple. Melaleuca is antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiviral, antibacterial. Lavender is analgesic ( gives pain relief), antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiviral, and antibacterial. And Lemon Essential Oil is antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiviral, antibacterial. Plus Coconut Oil and Vitamin E Oil are good for the skin.

So try this Homemade Antiseptic next time you run out of the commercial stuff, you’ll be glad you did.

DIY AntisepticIngredients:

  • 1 Cup Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vitamin E Oil
  • 1-1/2 Oz Beeswax

    Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he just bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

    With these ingredients, I bet this would make an excellent salve for garden- or dishwashing-weary hands, too! Pinned to try it in the future. Thanks!
