      Tea tree oil is an essential oil extracted from the leaves of the Australian

      tea. The oil works against bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and viruses that attack

      the skin.

      2 cup glycerin soap base

      2 Tbsp. Tea tree oil

      To Make This Antibacterial Natural Soap: Melt glycerin base in double

      boiler. Blend in tea tree oil and pour into mold.

      Tea tree oil also makes a nice deodorant soap which is effective in cleaning

      out minor cuts and treating athlete’s foot. Glycerin is a gentle skin

      moisturizer soap that is available in clear and opaque. This soap base can

      be found at health food stores, some drug stores, craft stores or major

      department stores. Glycerin makes soap making less intimidating because

      glycerin soap recipes don’t require lye and fats. The trick to making this

      antibacterial natural soap is to keep the heat as low as possible. High

      heating temperatures heat will produce a mushy or beaded appearance. To keep

      the glycerin from attracting moisture from the air, tightly wrap the

      glycerin soaps in plastic after making.

      Sticky labels, round labels and heavyweight card stock can be used for

      labeling your antibacterial natural soap. Boxes and baskets are nice

      containers for soap, especially when you fill the boxes with other

      materials. You can fill the box or basket halfway with herbs, dried flowers

      or potpourri that matches the scent of your soap. Gift basket fillings,

      other toiletries, washcloths or sponges also make great fillers in the

      basket with your soap. Once you have added the filler and soap, wrap the box

      or basket in cellophane. Coffee mugs also great “baskets.” Add a filler to

      the cup and place a bar of soap in the center and wrap with cellophane or

      tulle. Small brown paper bags, cello type bags, wood crates and soap dishes

      are other containers you can use to package your soaps and salts.
