Homemade Antiseptic Ointment

Many of us were raised to reach for over-the-counter antibiotic creams to treat minor scrapes and cuts. You can control the quality of the ingredients and put nature to work for you with a homemade batch of first-aid antiseptic ointment.  With tea tree, lavender and lemon essential oils the natural qualities of this balm are antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral, antibiotic and even analgesic for minor pain relief.

Love essential oils? I’m a self-proclaimed oil-junkie! Read up on the brand of essential oils I absolutely love and currently use for everything from warding off strep, to eliminating my daughter’s asthma.

If you can’t find the ingredients locally consider ordering from Mountain Rose Herbs.  I checked today and they have all of the ingredients for this recipe in stock.
