Soothing DIY Facial Cleanser with Thistle Farms Lavender Essential Oil

Soothing DIY Facial Cleanser with Thistle Farms Lavender Essential Oil

Tired of spending a fortune on your skincare routine? Mixing a few natural ingredients that are nourishing for the skin can be easy on the earth and your budget too. Removing makeup is the foundation of all skincare, and getting your face glowingly clean is the first step in a routine that soothes, cleanses, and moisturizes.

We've played around with a lot of recipes and this one was the hands-down favorite. With the right amount of cleansing power, moisturizing richness, and soothing botanicals, this one hits all of the high notes of great looking skin.

Here's what you'll need:

1/2 cup distilled water

1 teaspoon Thistle Farms Lavender Hand Soap

1 tablespoon witch hazel

1 teaspoon coconut oil

6 drops Thistle Farms Lavender Essential Oil 

Round cotton pads

A small round jar with tight lid

Mix all liquids in the cleaned and sanitized jar and shake or stir well.  Place cotton pads in jar and let sit until all (or most) liquid is absorbed. Close jar tightly with cleaned and sanitized lid. Remove pads one at a time, use for eye makeup removal and/or all-over facial cleansing. No rinsing required, but you can rinse if you'd like. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. Great for all skin types!
