Hey hey! I’m sure you’ve read my last post about my journey into essential oils and why I chose the brand that I did but, if you haven’t, click here and read that first.
I recently downloaded the app Think Dirty… I highly recommend it. Simply search or scan the barcode of any bathroom product you often use (beauty, bath, etc) and it will give you a rating (1-10 with 10 being the “dirtiest”). You will be shocked by what you find! Did you know that most fragrances in the products we use every day our carcinogens? Literally, yuck. The face wash I used for months claimed to be “all natural” yet scored a 7 on the app, filled with allergens and carcinogens. Not to mention, us ladies (I have been guilty of this as well) spend hundreds on high end, chemical filled skin care products… but get so disappointed when you see no results. Sound familiar? Seriously, if you think of it that way, this face wash is a no brainer. It is so affordable and honestly the only thing I have ever tried that has changed my skin so drastically!
Let’s just say, I am very excited that I was introduced to this simple DIY face wash. And, my skin has never looked better! It’s a win win.
This face wash is simply pure castile soap, argan oil, a few essential oils, and water. That’s it!! But, like the importance of understanding the ingredients in store bought face wash… it is just as important to understand the ingredients in this one. Not all essential oils are equal, so be sure you’re using oils you can trust to be pure. Otherwise, this DIY is no better than the yucky stuff, right?! That’s why I urge you to read the post mentioned at the top of this post first.
Now, let’s get into the fun stuff… how to make this DIY face wash!!
All you’ll need is:
- Foaming soap dispenser (I just bought a foaming hand wash at the store, dumped it, and cleaned the bottle (I found it to be cheaper than buying a dispenser)
- 1/2 cup pure unscented castile soap, I prefer this one.
- 1 tsp organ oil (or your favorite pure facial oil)
- 5 drops of Frankincense essential oil
- 5 drops of Lavender essential oil
- 5 drops of Lemon essential oil
Add all ingredients to your foaming soap dispenser and top it off with water! That’s it! Your skin will thank you for this, really. My skin has never been softer and the majority of all of my clogged pores/ black heads have vanished!! My sister used it once and texted me asking me all about it because she loved it so much, claiming her skin had never looked better.
