DIY Face Wash Recipe:

  • woman-washing-her-face250 ml glass bottle with twist cap (or pump)
  • 1/2 cup of pure Castile liquid soap
  • 1/2 tsp jojoba oil, or avocado oil (or other liquid oil like olive)
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • (Optional) 8 drops of essential oil of choice for scent (lavender, mint, etc

Add all of the ingredients to the glass bottle. Shake before each use. Why maple syrup? It’s antibacterial, helps to unclog pores and is packed with antioxidants! Why sea salt? In combination with maple syrup, it provides an antibacterial action of the face wash and prolongs the shelf life of the facewash. you can opt out of sea salt if you use honey. If using honey, use water to thin out the face wash to your needs.
