DIY Natural Foaming Hand Soap (Thieves Recipe) #diyhome -

Think antibacterial hand soap is your best defense against germs? Think again.

Antibacterial agents such as tricolosan are often added to hand soaps to kill germs, but they’re also linked with endocrine (hormonal) toxicity, organ system toxicity, and skin, eye or lung irritation. In addition, these harmful chemicals end up in our water supply and considered an environmental toxin.1

Ditch the chemicals and opt for a natural alternative with Thieves essential oil.

DIY Natural Foaming Hand Soap (Thieves Recipe) #diyhome - DontMesswithMama.comThieves oil is a special blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils, including clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary. The blend is named after four thieves who supposedly used the oils to protect themselves while robbing people dying of the plague in the 15th century.

Sound unbelievable? Thieves oil has actually been tested for its cleansing abilities and has shown to be very effective.2

And not only is Thieves a powerful cleaner (without the harsh chemicals and toxins), it smells AMAZING! It smells woodsy and clean. Perfect for dirty little hands.
