Both coconut oil and honey are antibacterial. But if it's for something serious you can't beat good old fashion pharmaceutical preparations.

What do you want it for OP?

Just general use, don't like preperations that I can't pronounce the ingredients

If you knew what the actual active ingredients in the natural antiseptics were called, you probably wouldn't be able to pronounce them either.

So, what does it do? It stops thing from killing germs, does it?

Seriously, if the hippies/snakeoil salesmen want to use pseudoscientific makey-uppey words to describe their products, they should at least find out what the various constituent parts of the words mean!






Off topic, but another example: "Organic" food and farming.

When those that were anti-drug/anti-pesticide/anti-fertilizer/etc wanted a word to describe their farming methods, someone suggested "Organic". Everybody said "Oh yeah, that's great, sounds really natuaral, like organism", and so the concept* acquired the name "Organic farming".

Small problem; the word 'Organic' already had a meaning. Ask any chemist.
Since about the early 19th century, chemistry has been broadly subdivided into two fields: Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.
Organic Chemistry is chemistry involving complex compounds of carbon, such as the ones that make up living beings (hence the name). Why is this a problem?
Because all drugs, pesticides and fertilizers are complex compounds of carbon, and therefore they fall into the definition of Organic Chemistry. So too do petrochemicals, plastics, and almost every pollutant you could name.

So, what happened is that the people who wanted to choose a word to describe their drug-free, pesticide-free, fertilizer-free totally natural farming methods, actually chose a word that means "Drugs, Pesticides, Fertilizers, Oil, Plastic, Pollution, Herbicide, etc."

How's that for irony?




* the concept itself is nothing new, it's been around for millennia!

Oh, sorry! I knew it wasn't your word, but I suppose because I extracted it from your post to quote it, it doesn't look like I knew.
