I wash and sanitize my hands frequently, because I work with animals. I needed something that could clean my hands but not dry them out. So I made this! My fiancee uses this as an aftershave, and sometimes uses it as a mouthwash. I'm not sure about that last bit, but it's definitely nice as an aftershave. Tea tree oil is a very strong antibacterial, antifungal, and has viricidal qualities, but it's not for those with very sensitive skin. I have fairly sensitive skin, and I can use it like this. Lavender and Lime oil are also good antibacterials. To make it manly, use cedar wood oil in place of the lavender. Do not use it if your life is in danger.
