I ran out of face wash last week and decided it was the perfect time to try and make my own. After looking at a bunch of recipes and deciding which looks best, I pieced this one together based on things I already had in the house.
This face wash contains unscented castile soap, rose water (for scent and to soothe skin), honey (antiseptic and antibacterial) and grapefruit essential oil (for scent, cleansing and cooling properties). I love it. I was a little nervous that the addition of honey would make it sticky, but it doesn’t at all. After washing with this face wash, my skin feels as squeaky clean as it’s ever felt. Using a few drops of Face Food after cleansing with this face wash makes for a heavenly combination.
Honey Rose Face Wash
- 4 oz unscented castile soap
- 4 oz rose water
- 1 oz honey
- 15 drops grapefruit essential oil
- pump bottle (I rinsed out the bottle from the face wash I’d used up)
Mix all ingredients and stir well. Using a funnel, transfer into a pump bottle. Give it a shake before each use. If desired, follow with 2-3 drops of Face Food.
