Home Made Facial Cleanser

23/11/2013 admin DIY Recipes



Let’s face it, we all want to have beautiful skin, but certainly not at the expense of our health! Did you know putting chemicals on your skin is actually far worse than ingesting them? When you ingest something, the enzymes in your saliva and stomach help break down the material and flush it out of your body. However, when you put these chemicals on your skin, they are absorbed straight into your blood stream without filtering of any kind, so there’s no protection against the toxins and other chemicals being absorbed!

The best way to ensure you know exactly what you are putting on your skin, and into your body, is to start making your own skincare products at home. I recently started experimenting with homemade skincare recipes, and the results have been amazing- It’s fun, rewarding, and my skin has never looked so vibrant!

Now let’s get started!

Home Made Facial Cleanser Recipes


Cocoa Butter Facial Cleanser Recipe


6 tablespoons cocoa butter
2 1/2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
2 1/2 tablespoons water
5 drops sandalwood essential oil


In a microwave, melt the cocoa butter then add in the water and grapeseed oil. Do not overheat. Whisk until room temp then add EOs. Store in a glass jar.

Rose Face Cleanser Recipe


6 tablespoon of each: sweet almondjojoba oil, grapeseed.
9 drops bergamot essential oils
9 drops rose essential oils
6 drops lavender essential oils


Add carrier oils to a clean, dark glass bottle. Add essential oils. Gently shake to blend before each use. Store in a dark, glass bottle in a cool place. Apply a small amount to face and massage to cleanse. Rinse with warm water and a wash cloth. Skin will feel super smooth and silky!

Tips For Preserving Homemade Skincare Products

  • If working with food in your recipes, it’s best just to stick to one use batches. Don’t make anymore then what you can use at a single time. Or make just enough to last 1 week and store in the fridge.
  • Always keep water away from your jars! Even dipping a wet finger into a jar of your fresh lotion can contaminate it. Always make sure fingers are clean and dry or use an application to remove your lotion.
  • Store your products in dark containers or opaque packaging to keep them away from the harmful effects of sunlight
  • If going preservative-free…. It’s important to remember that your natural products will not stay fresh for as long as commercial products do. By making your products in small batches that you use up within a short period of time, your products will stay fresh and you eliminate the need to preserve your products with harsh chemical preservatives.

Eco-Tip: Use empty skincare product containers to store & dispense your homemade skincare concoctions! Tubs with lids work great for creamy substances, and pump bottles are awesome for liquids!
