Make Your Own Chemical-free Antiseptic Soap at Home

Make Your Own Chemical-free Antiseptic Soap at Home

A huge chunk of people in our modern societies are now embracing natural living. This is a leaning towards the use of more natural health and beauty products. It is also about using environmentally friendly household cleaning and body products for better health. Antiseptic or antibacterial soap is mainly used to keep our bodies free from harmful germs. However, recent findings have revealed the dangers of using commercial antiseptic soaps. Most recently, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded in a report that there is no evidence to show that antiseptic soap is better than ordinary soap. The report went on to state that some of the ingredients used in commercial antibacterial soaps could even have harmful effects!.

Harmful ingredients contained in commercial antiseptic soap

Watch this video to learn how to make your own natural liquid soap!

Looking at the actual constitution of an antibacterial soap is important. This way, you can judge each ingredient by its merits. Some of the most harmful ingredients to find in these commercial antiseptic soaps are as follows;

  • Tetrasodium EDTA – this is an ingredient used as a preservative. It is known to enhance better penetration of the soap into the skin. The problem is that it is a known carcinogen. This harmful ingredient when used over a long period of time will certainly have a bad effect.
  • Benzyl Salicylate – according to the European Cosmetic Directive, this compound is an allergenic and causes irritation to skin. Over time, normal skin can become problematic due to this ingredient.
  • Perfume – as you already know, perfume provides the scent needed. Did you know that a single scent can be produced by up to 3,100 compounds? Many of these compounds have not been studied to determine their effects. The synthetic compounds are many times derived from petroleum which is known to have toxins that can interfere with hormonal function.
  • Saponified palm oil – sodium palmate is many times produced unethically; causing great harm to the environment. It is used in antiseptic soaps because it is cheap and readily available.

There are many other harmful ingredients to talk about including parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). With the above information, the need for chemical-free antiseptic soap arises. The good news is that you can make your very own soap at home with simple ingredients. and avoid all the harmful effects of commercial antibacterial soap.

Where do you start with homemade liquid antiseptic soap?

You start by looking at the most suitable natural ingredients to use. Go with proven options that do not have any ill effects. Keep in mind that even natural compounds can be harmful when used the wrong way. Below are the best ingredients to use;

Castile soap

This is a very popular soap that is named after the region of Castile in Spain. The soap is named after olive oil soaps that originated from the region. Castile soap is made using natural ingredients like vegetable oils. The soap is mainly made of hemp oils, coconut oil and olive oil. This soap is an excellent alternative when you are looking to eliminate harmful germs from your body. This soap is widely available in the market and can be both in liquid or a solid bar. In this article, you will learn how to create a liquid antiseptic soap at home using Castile soap as an ingredient.

Ordinary soap bars can also be used as an ingredient to create an antiseptic soap. The best ordinary soaps are the unscented ones. If you feel that you want to go 100% organic and chemical-free, there are organic soap options that you can consider. Some vegan brands are really good for making your liquid antibacterial soap at home.

Essential oils

You might be familiar with some top benefits of essential oils. You will be delighted to learn that these oils can be used to create a potent antiseptic soap at home. Below is a quick look at the best oils for this job;

Tea tree – This oil is known for its antimicrobial effects. It is able to kill harmful germs effectively without causing adverse effects when used properly.

Cinnamon leaf – The antiseptic properties of this oil are well known. It is also an anti inflammatory agent that will leave your skin feeling soothed.

Eucalyptus – This oil has been used for a long time to treat skin infections. This is because it kills germs naturally without harming your skin.

Peppermint – This oil is effective against fungus, bacteria and even viruses. All the oils above also come with a great aroma to give you some aromatherapy benefits. There are many other essential oils to use for antimicrobial purposes.


Essential oils are naturally very potent. Using them should be done carefully while using right quantities. Using carrier oils such as coconut and jojoba oils will have a better effect on your skin. Above all, use little amounts of the oils where you do not have the actual guide on the amount to use.   

Best recipes to make homemade antiseptic liquid soap

Recipe 1 – The ultimate antiseptic hand wash soap


This liquid soap is made using a host of ingredients. In this recipe, you will need several essential oils and liquid castile soap; among others. This liquid soap will not only remove germs but will leave your skin smooth and supple. It will protect sensitive skin and provide excellent scents to your delight.  

  • Half a tablespoon of almond oil
  • Four drops of lavender essential oil
  • Seven drops of tea tree essential oil
  • Three capsules of vitamin E oil
  • Quarter cup of liquid castile soap (made of olive oil)
  • Quarter cup of distilled water (purified water)

Steps to make the liquid antiseptic soap:

  • Start by pouring the distilled water into a glass jar and adding the liquid castile soap. Then, add the almond oil followed by the vitamin E oil. Puncture the capsules properly before adding.
  • When you have a consistent mix, pour the liquid soap in a suitable hand dispenser. Your antiseptic soap is now ready for use. You can use it for up to four months. This is the perfect natural and chemical-free hand wash liquid soap to have in your home. Making the soap is also very easy and cost-effective as well.  

Recipe 2 – Soap-based lemon oil hand wash

If you are looking for the easiest way to make your very own antibacterial soap at home, this is the best recipe for you. All you need is a good soap and lemon essential oil.


  • Any unscented soap bar (organic soap is 100% natural)
  • Five drops of lemon essential oil
  • Two cups of water
  • A pot
  • A grater or a food processor


  • Start by grating the soap using the cheese grater or a food processor. It should be shredded into small pieces.
  • In your pot, pour the water and allow it to boil. Then, add the shredded pieces of the soap and stir. When all the soap pieces have melted, remove the pot from the heat and allow it to cool.
  • Finally, add the drops of lemon essential oil to the liquid. It is perfectly fine to substitute another essential oil of your choice that has antiseptic properties such as lemongrass, lavender or rosemary. If you are not sure about the amount to use, a guide is that the oils should only be 2% of the entire recipe for adult use; and 1% for children.
  • Pour the final product into a desired soap dispenser and you can start using your soap. This liquid soap can be used for up to six months.

Recipe 3 – Essential oil blend antiseptic soap

This is a rich liquid soap that will do your skin so much good. You can tap into the merits of essential oils and benefits of castile soap. In this recipe, you will need fractionated coconut oil; or alternative extra-virgin coconut oil. The fractionated kind will last longer. Below is a list of the things you will need;



  • In a bowl, mix the liquid castile soap together with your coconut oil. Using a glass bowl or jar is ideal when you are making soap at home.
  • Take all the essential oils and add them to the mixture. Blend all the ingredients until they are mixed properly with a uniform consistency. An electric hand whisk will help you achieve the best results.
  • Finally, take your liquid soap and place it into a suitable dispensing bottle. Your soap is ready for use; and you can use it for about four months. This liquid foaming antiseptic soap is easy to make and will save you a lot of money.

Remember, you can play around with the ingredients as long as they are natural and suitable. Choose essential oils that work best for your needs. If you are allergic to any natural ingredient, be sure to use better alternatives. This way, you can come up with your very own recipes at home that will work.   

Where can you get natural liquid antiseptic soap?

When you are looking to buy alternative liquid antibacterial soap that is chemical-free, it is important to source from the right people. Choose trusted brands that actually produce the soap ethically for unlimited health benefits. Utama Spice is a natural aromatherapy brand that is ideal for you.

Benefits of using chemical-free liquid soap

  • Homemade liquid soap is much cheaper than commercial options. This is a great way to save money while getting full value for the ingredients you use.
  • When you use natural products, you will be promoting a chemical-free environment. This will reduce your carbon footprint and make you a good steward of the environment around you. If every person was to take personal responsibility, the environment would not be as badly degraded as it is the case today.
