DIY Healing Citrus Face Wash for Lustrous, Clear Skin

One by one I am replacing the products in our bathroom with homemade options. Face wash as my first because I was really upset that I battled acne for so long and their marketing tactics made me believe it was my fault because I hadn’t found the right product yet. I’ve quit dairy and my clear skin is really appreciating the gentle homemade products that I’ve been cleaning it with.

I’ve formed this face wash for oily to dry skin that is prone to breakouts. I tend to get dosed with dairy every time I eat out so it’s nice to be fighting blemishes before they even start. This combination of ingredients is meant to balance the skin’s natural oils while reducing any inflammation that may be coming out. Also the color of the stuff is just beautiful and golden like honey. Healing Citrus Facewash

Ingredients:

1/4 cup chamomile lemon grass water (Directions below)

1/4 cup Dr. Bronner’s baby castille soap

1 tsp Calendula oil

8 drops lemon essential oil

To make the chamomile lemon grass water Completely fill 1 tea ball with dried chamomile flowers and fill 1 tea ball with dried lemon grass, place both into a heat resistant measuring cup. Pour approximately 1 cup of boiling water over the tea balls and let sit for up to 24 hours. Cover with a kitchen towel to reduce the risk of anything getting in the measuring cup. The longer the steep the more the water has take on the healing properties of the herbs.

To make the Healing Citrus Facewash Gently mix all of the ingredients together and pour directly into desired container. Use in the morning and in the evening, shake before using, separation is natural. If the essential oil burns or dries you out use less and apply coconut oil after application in the evening.
