    Have you ever checked out the ingredients on your chosen facial cleanser? When it comes to personal care products, it’s easy to load up on a bunch of junk and dangerous toxins. You always want to be careful about what you’re putting on your skin! That’s why I’m always on the hunt for the best handmade products and instructions for making things myself. In the past, I’ve covered making and buying natural candles, laundry detergent, lip balm, deodorant, lotion, soap and eye shadow. Now, let’s talk about face wash!

    Making facial cleanser is easier to make than people may think. My favorite part of making my own products is that it’s easy to customize your products, so if you’ve got specific needs due to your skin type, you can make it!

    Four simple and awesome everyday products that you can use to clean your face include honey, yogurt, oil and cleansing grains (See: 11 One-Ingredient DIY Face Masks). But if you want to go for something specific that’s worked for me, I’ve included a favorite recipe below:


    Facial Cleansing Recipe


    - A clean spice jar with lid - A box of pure baking soda - Jojoba oil - A glass bottle with a dropper lid - Skin safe pure essential oils - An awesome, pure honey (optional)


    1. Fill the spice jar with baking soda.

    2. Mix the jojoba oil with a few drops of essential oil into the glass bottle.

    3. When ready to use, shake the spice jar once into your hand, mix the baking soda with 3-5 drops of the jojoba oil mixture, and a small dollop of honey (optional). Spread on to damp skin and massage gently. It might tingle a bit (fun!) Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
