    tea tree is amazing, thyme is, with its thymol oil, a wonder in this dept., there are myrrh and goldenseal and echinacea, turmeric, cinnamon, bayberry, eucalyptus, pau d'arco, olive leaves, lavender, citrus oils. look for essential oil tinctures.
    you can also consider things like garlic (garlicin) oil and cranberries extracts, and even honey (has to be real honey, not most crap in stores that is nowadays cut with GMO corn syrup or is just straight up corn syrup). the rawer the honey the better, and the stuff from AU and Africa can be magical. forget what some of that stuff is called.
    how about adding in some medicinal mushroom extracts? :al:


    this reminds me, though, when it comes time for me to grow, I imagine i will use these types of things to sterilize areas over using oust/lycol. I need to figure a way to make an aerosol so things aren't so wet tho, and leaving oily residue :/
    any ideas folks?

    So what your saying about the honey is that if you can get the bees to regurgitate into your soap it would be awesome?
