Why would you want to make or buy antifungal soap? Maybe you have nail fungus on your fingernails or toenails. Maybe you've been diagnosed with a fungal skin infection such as sebhorrheic dermatitis and want some natural relief.
If you work out in a gym, swim at a public pool, or live in a dormitory - anywhere you share showers and/or walk barefoot where others do you might want a soap with antifungal properties as a protective measure to insure you don't contract athlete's foot, a somewhat contagious infection of the skin (also can affect hair follicles and nail beds).
Here's an easy recipe for antifungal soap you can make at home:
8 oz liquid castille soap
15 drops tea tree oil
15 drops oil of oregano
10 drops clove oil
Simply stir the oils into the liquid castille soap and store in an appropriate container. You can purchase affordable pump bottles for your own creations at a variety of craft stores or housewares stores. This mixture can be strong. Adjust the strength to your preference.
If you don't have all of these oils, you can use any combination of them in your liquid castille soap.
This mixture also works as a shampoo. Be careful to avoid your eyes; this soap/shampoo won't actually damage them, but it can sting!
For use on the feet, hands, or nails you can use a stronger concentration of oils in the liquid soap.
