Save money and avoid toxic chemicals with Homemade Coconut Oil Face Cleanser. Cleanse and nourish your skin and remove makeup with this simple recipe.
3/4 cup virgin coconut oil
1 Tbs. vitamin E oil
1 tsp. lavender essential oil
1/2 tsp. frankincense essential oil
Add 1/4 tsp. German chamomile essential oil for when your skin is irritated and inflamed.
In a microwave-safe glass measuring cup, melt the coconut oil on low in the microwave. When it is melted, stir in the vitamin E oil and essential oils.
Next, pour it into an 8 ounce or larger jar and allow it to set.
Use it whenever you need to cleanse your face and remove your makeup. Safe to use in the eye area. For additional cleansing, follow with Homemade Natural Micellar Water (recipe coming next week).
The beauty of this homemade face cleanser is that it can be customized to suit your skin’s current needs.
For acne-prone skin, reduce the Vitamin E oil to 1 teaspoon and add 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil or Plant Therapy’s Zit Fighter essential oil blend. Zit Fighter contains no tea tree oil but does contain geranium, cedarwood, peppermint, grapefruit, rosemary, and Roman chamomile essential oils. Zit Fighter helps with redness and irritation as well as healing acne.
