Tea Tree Soap

  • Two tbsp Tea Tree Oil which by the way has wonderful natural antiseptic and antibacterial effects
  • Two tsp Turmeric Powder, again something that packs antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities
  • Two cups clear glycerin soap base

The procedure is quite simple and starts with combining the soap base, tea tree oil and turmeric root powder and heating them until the mixture turns into a yellowish semi-clear liquid. Now transfer the liquid into molds and cases of your choice and allow it to set and cool down. The turmeric especially has a coarse texture and that acts as a mild exfoliator. These powerful antiseptic ingredients are perfect for any cuts and wounds that you might have. Tea Tree soap is also ideal for general protection against harmful bacteria and viruses while the turmeric present also functions as a skin lightening agent.
