Treat your face to this simple, soothing homemade face cleanser.
This gentle but effective facial cleanser recipe can be used on most skin types, although it's particularly good for
normal and combination skin.
Rose Water gently cleanses, renews and moisturizes, while vegetable glycerin softens your skin.
Lavender and Rose Geranium essential oils help maintain the proper balance of oil production (and smell wonderful!)
Don't be fooled into thinking you need a lot of ingredients to make a really good facial cleanser. A few very
effective natural ingredients will do the job that 50 fillers, chemicals and other synthetic
ingredients promise (and sometimes fail) to do. Without stripping or irritating your skin. Yay!

Customizing Your Homemade Face Cleanser
Add 1 tablespoon pure Aloe Vera gel. Do NOT buy aloe from a pharmacy. Go to
Mountain Rose Herbs online or to a health food store. The stuff you get at a drugstore is adulterated with alcohol and preservatives.
Aloe is super for feeding skin with vitamins, minerals and enzymes, soothing redness and dealing with sun damage. Also good for aging skin and acne.
Replace some or all of the hydrosols with other
floral waters such as calendula, chamomile, helichrysum or sandalwood.
For an earthier, less sweet scent, replace the ylang ylang with 1 drop of sandalwood essential oil.
