Homemade Face Wash

Life in general has been CRAZY busy lately. Hudson is much better following surgery and a long recovery. Husby has been working a lot more lately. With all the crazy going on around here I have faltered on following my eating and exercise plan. It has taken a toll on my skin, I stumbled across a homemade face wash recipe. The timing was perfect! I had most of the ingredients, double bonus!

I found a mason jar pump attachment and a mason jar, I got to work. I ended up doubling the recipe but it lasts over a month, so you decide.

Honey Lemon Face Wash

1/4 C Olive oil

1/8 C Liquid Castile Soap

1/4 C Honey

1/8 C Organic Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

10 Drops Essential Oil (Lemon, Grapefruit, Sweet Orange), This is optional but it helps counter the smell of the vinegar. I used lemon essential oil but I would have preferred sweet orange.


The smell is strong but after a few hours mixed together the essential oil scent takes over.  After a few days using the face wash I saw very different skin. It had a glow and most of my break outs were gone! I hope you try it.
