Homemade Foaming Face Cleaner is simple to make and doesn’t contain all of the chemicals and crazy ingredients that store bought facial cleansers do.
Over the past few years, I have tried to make as many of the products in our home as chemical free and non-toxic as possible. I started with our cleaning products and am making my way through the products we use for our body now. I’ve already made my own Rosemary-Mint Shampoo, Peppermint Sugar Scrub, Congestion Relief Bath Salts, Homemade Dry Shampoo and will be making more and more of our own bath and body products going forward.
One of the things that I have had on my list of things to make is face wash. I’ve tried a few recipes out, but wasn’t impressed. I wanted something that wouldn’t only clean the makeup off of my face, but also help to clarify and tone my face as well as fight any blemishes and bacteria. I absolutely love this recipe and have been using it for a few weeks now. It leaves my skin feeling amazing!

What You Will Need:
3/4 Cup of Distilled Water
1/4 Cup of Castile Soap ( Purchase HERE )
1 Tablespoon of Raw Honey ( Purchase HERE )
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil ( Purchase HERE )
20 Drops of Tea Tree Oil ( Purchase HERE )
Foaming Soap Dispenser ( Purchase HERE )
Most of these items can be found at your grocery store, and you can absolutely clean and use an old foaming soap dispenser. I am providing the links to all of these items just in case they are had for you to find.
Add all of the ingredients listed above and shake well. Since there are no chemical binders in this recipe, there may be some separation of ingredients in between uses…just shake before each use to combine them.
I like to wet my face with warm water and apply two pumps worth to my face. Just use your fingers to gently massage the cleanser into your skin. Rinse with warm water and pat your face dry with a clean towel.
This all natural face cleanser will leave your skin feeling and smelling amazing. You can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to this recipe if your face tends to be red and enflamed. The tea tree essential oil is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal that helps to cleanse away bacteria and will help fight acne. I hope you love this cleanser as much as I do! Next up, I’ll be working on a face moisturizer to use with it!
