Antiseptic Body Wash
Every day we step out of our homes for our daily activities and endeavors, we put ourselves at the risk of contracting different bacteria and disease causing germs and even more. This happens as we come in contact with different surfaces, door handles, shake hands, count money and all sorts of things we do daily. Your chances of such are higher if you work in an environment where hygiene is not taken seriously. In any case, one of the best ways you can protect yourself and family is by using antiseptic soaps.
Antiseptic soaps contain ingredients that clean and moisturize your skin and also help you to get rid of germs.
Bacteria and germs are harmful and pose a risk to our health especially when we are continually exposed to it. This antiseptic body wash is an excellent wash in the shower after a hard or sweaty day. If you experience body itches, this is the wash for you.

STEP 4: Now add in your already dissolved SLS to the mixture and stir very well for 15 minutes to blend. Make sure to dissolve your SLS before you start
Well dissolved SLS is usually colorless and clear
With the addition of SLS, your mixture will be foaming now as a result of the presence of foaming agents in this solution
Give about 20 minutes time for foam to reduce and clear
STEP 5: Add your 100ml pine oil to the solution and stir well to blend for 15 minutes.
Pine Oil is a mild antiseptic agent that is effective against household germs and odor causing bacteria and it is a good addition to your body wash, as a matter of fact, it is pine oil alongside tea tree and peppermint oils that adds antiseptic properties to this body wash.

TIP: Cover your antiseptic body wash for about 4 hours to blend and settle well before you finally add your perfume,
STEP 11: After 4 hours, add your fragrance into your body wash to complete
your production. Usually floral fragrances and essential perfume oils are good for body wash as they have some therapeutic and nerve calming properties.
If you can afford to buy them, by all means, do it. If you can’t then you can use our normal synthetic perfumes
For this production, I will recommend rose oil and lemon grass, you can mix them in the ratio of 20ml of rose oil and 10ml of lemon grass.
You can also decide to use any other perfume fragrance if you so desire.
So add in your 30ml fragrance and stir your body wash very well for 15 minutes to blend well.
If you have been following my production instructions very well, you will know that I always tell you to add perfume last and stir well to blend.
Allow your antiseptic body wash to sit for 24 hours after which you can now package for use.
You can also produce smaller quantity if you want to test this body wash out, just reduce all quantities appropriately. For example, you can reduce all chemicals in half and produce 5 liters
