DIY Face Wash (The Best Face Wash Ever!)

 

Well, while we’re on the topic of saving as much money as we can to throw towards all our debt. I was running out of my favorite face wash and decided to replicate it with the supplies that I already had. Turns out that I absolutely love this new face wash (just as much as my old one – gasp!) and want to share this new DIY Face Wash recipe with you.

Along with the desire to save as much money possible – I’m also trying to turn our home from a chemical infested cesspool to a clean and toxic free home due to **Hashimoto's Disease** that I’ve recently developed. Part of the Autoimmune Protocol Diet is to eliminate all toxins which touch your body and I’m trying to do that to the best of my ability while also saving money (Hint: It’s not easy!)

I have sensitive skin and I haven’t had any allergic reactions to this, but remember to test it out on one spot on you face before you put it all over – just in case. You don’t want to walk into work the next morning with a beet red face covered in a rash. But – that’s just my advice. Take it or leave it!

Let me tell you a bit about why I love this face wash so much. The scent is absolutely wonderful and soothing. If I could bottle that smell up – I swear I would be a more relaxed human being. It lathers nicely and washes off of your face easily. My face just feels clean and rejuvenated afterwards – almost like I just went to the spa and got a facial. No. Joke.

Without further ado – here’s the recipe I used and I’m guessing it will last me around 4-5 months (easily!) which means that I’ve saved about $116 over the course of a year just on face wash alone!

I call that great savings!

1 8oz bottle/jar – whatever you prefer. (I use this)
1 cup Castile soap — a very mild soap made from olive oil
2 tbs jojoba oil
1tbs  sweet almond oil
15 drops of lavender essential oil — antiseptic, heals blemishes
drops of tea tree (melalecua) oil — strong antibacterial, disinfects and heals acne

Note: I like my face wash to have stronger smells. If you want your face wash to have a much more mild smell I would recommend reducing the about of essential oils used.

Mix all ingredients in your bottle/jar and add your essential oils. I would recommend shaking it a bit before you use it – the oils tend to separate slightly. 

Enjoy your new spa like face wash! I know I do!

Happy face washing!
