DIY aromatic antibacterial hand gel | Easy to make!

July 16th, 2019

Let me introduce home-made antibacterial hand gel that you can quickly manage hygiene when you want to use.

It’s the hand gel with aromatic healing effect as well!

What essential oil is the most favorite for antibacterial action?

Tea Tree essential oil has excellent antibacterial action, and its effect has been verified in various experiments already.
There is also a report that it also works on MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), a representative case of nosocomial infection causing pathogens *, and it is possible that Tea Tree Oil may be useful for antibiotic resistant bacterial problems.

Tea Tree Essential Oil is also marketed here and there, including antimicrobial sprays and deodorants based on it, and it is widely known about its antibacterial effect.
