DIY: Honey Lemon Face Wash


This face wash is sure to dazzle your skin and your taste buds.  It feels and smells delicious.  I have been using it for 6 weeks and can say that I am absolutely pleased with the results.  Most of the ingredients can be found in your pantry.  I am still working toward our family goal of reducing our plastic use.  Most of the ingredients can be purchased in bulk at our co-op grocery store and the pump bottle pictured here is recycled from a previous fash wash I'd purchased.  I hope you love this as much as I do!

Ingredients:

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
2 Tbsp Vitamin E oil
10 Drops of essential oils: grapefruit, sweet orange, lemon (optional)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients and blend together with hand blender.  Pour ingredients into a a beautiful and convenient bottle (as shown).  To use: Pump small amount in hand and lather with water.  Wash face with special care to avoid delicate eye area in case essential oils causes irritation.  (For eyes, use this recipe.)
