Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash Recipe
Homemade Facial Cleanser with Tea Tree Oil
Purify oily, acne-prone skin with this gentle, astringent tea tree oil facial wash. This homemade facial cleanser recipe really gets rid of deep-down dirt and bacteria, but it's gentle enough for daily use.
Homemade facial cleansers are great because you control what's in them - with only natural, healing ingredients they don't irritate or strip your skin - and they don't poison you! Gotta love that!
The recipe includes lavender, lemongrass and petitgrain to reduce oil production, plus aloe vera and vegetable glycerin to repair skin and soften blemishes.
Tea tree essential oil kills breakout-causing bacteria and chamomile reduces redness and soothes skin irritation.
Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash Recipe
1/2 cup (125ml) Lime Hydrosol OR Lavender Hydrosol
2 tablespoons (30ml) Vegetable Glycerin
2 tablespoons (30ml) Aloe Vera gel
3 drops Petitgrain essential oil
3 drops Lemongrass essential oil
3 drops Tea Tree essential oil
1 drop Chamomile OR Ylang Ylang essential oil
5 drops Grapefruit Seed Extract (natural preservative)
For doTERRA essential oils use:
2 drops Lemongrass
2 drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree)
1 drop Chamomile OR Geranium
1 drop Ylang Ylang
Pour everything into a 200ml (or larger)
dark glass or PET plastic bottle.
Shake well to combine. Wait 24 hours before using to let the mixture "cure".
To use, dampen your skin with warm water, then gently massage the tea tree oil facial wash into your skin.
Rinse, pat dry, then apply
astringent toner and
acne treatment oil.
Where to Buy Natural Face Cleanser Recipe Supplies
I use oils from a company called doTERRA
because I've found that their quality is better than any of the other
brands I've used over the past 10 years. They work faster, they smell
better and they last longer because you only use half the recipe amount.
(In fact, I have a shoebox full of oils I'll never use again...)
You can buy them online or contact me to learn how to get wholesale prices.
My favorite supplier for other aromatherapy recipe ingredients is
Mountain Rose Herbs. Their prices are excellent, their service is great,
and their quality is good. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for making tea tree oil facial wash...
