August 17, 2011: Liquid Facial Cleanser Recipe

I recently ran out of facial cleanser I’d bought at the store. But rather than replenish the store bought cleanser, I saved the dispenser, which was fitted with a foaming gel pump, and mixed up my own recipe. This one is great for aging or dry skin since it the ingredients are naturally moisturizing. The peppermint oil gives it a bit of a zing but you could also substitute other scents of your liking. It leaves your skin feeling amazing!

The beauty of this formula, unlike many others you’ll find online, is that it doesn’t require refrigeration. Who washes their face in the kitchen?

Liquid Facial Cleanser

3 ounces castile soap (I used 18 in 1 Hemp Lavender)
2 T. honey
1 t. almond oil
6 drops peppermint oil

Combine all ingredients. You don’t have to measure them exactly; instead you can look at the volume of your container and eyeball it to get an approximate ratio.

Shake well before using.

  1. I love this recipe! thanks for sharing. I can't wait to give it a try!

  2. Hi Leslie! Do try it - I love this cleanser even better than the store bought stuff I replaced. I'm thinking of making up a big batch and giving it away in small, pretty containers for Christmas gifts.
