I've been making my own foaming hand soap using diluted Dr. Bronner's in a foaming dispenser. Well, the upcoming flu season has me thinking about antibacterial stuff. Plus, I feel a little more comfortable with antibacterial soap in the kitchen as well for washing off raw chicken and stuff.

 

We were taking our children to a wholistic ped for a while and I noticed in the soap dispensers in the bathroom it looked like they had crushed garlic in them. I was going to ask the ped about it but got sidetracked. I'm guessing this was for antibacterial purposes. I've googled it and found nothing. Anyone know anything about this??

The natural antibacterial soaps all have tea tree, lavender and/or thyme in them. I don't know about using garlic, there probably is a way, but I personally would go with one or more of the three things I listed.

Great, thank you! I'm already using lavender castile soap so maybe I'll try adding some tea tree oil to that. I would imagine this would smell better than using garlic anyways :p
