Billi the lemon essential oil is antiviral and antibacterial. It is the anti-bacterial that you are looking for. They are

Tea Tree (Maleluca alternafolia),
Lavender (Lavendula angistifolia),
Oregano (Oregano vulgar),
Geranium (Geranium asperum)
Lemon. (Citrus limon).

Hi Stormy! Is the lemon essential oil just for the smell since is only 14 drops. That isn't a large amount for a gallon. If it is just for the smell, I assume you could use any essential oil that you like the smell of? Thanks for posting this!!
