You'll learn that I am a very simple, basic woman who LOVES to make life easy and all natural! My face wash is simple. . .I use one of two products as a base; Master's Miracle II Moisturizing soap or Dr. Bronners Castile soap. I find the MM doesn't dry my skin at all. Dr. Bronner's costs about $35 a gallon and MM costs arounc $50 a gallon. However, the MM is VERY concentrated and can be made into 2 gallons or even more!
Now comes the tricky part. All skin types are different and even our individual skin changes from time to time. With each skin type requires a different essential oil. I put Patchouli, Lavender, or Peppermint in mine. I usually don't put more then 2 in at a time. I start with about 3-4 ounces of soap and add 10-15 drops of oil.
I have made a list of oils I own that I feel are good for the skin. I am linking each one to the benefits they have for your skin so that you can make an educated choice for your own skin. Tea Tree Grapefruit Lavender (scroll towards the bottom of this site to see benefits for skin) Eucalyptus (does great with lavender) Patchouli Peppermint and Elemi (scroll down a little on this site).
My personal favorites for face wash is Patchouli or Elemi.
