In this day and age of chemically laden everything, one of the best, simple things that you can do to help minimize those harmful effects is to make your own natural facial cleanser. Luckily, it is a very simple process, that anyone could do.
Natural Products Instead of Chemicals
There are so many studies by so many groups concerning all of the chemicals that are put into cosmetics and their affects on us. It is certainly worth looking into. For instance, this study from May 2019, THE TOXIC TWENTY CHEMICALS AND CONTAMINANTS IN COSMETICS. It is very eye-opening…and scary.
Luckily, there is something that we can do about it. Small steps in the right direction still take us where we need to be. And, that brings us to this post; taking a small, easy step toward removing harmful chemicals from our lives, by making natural facial cleanser.
Make a Natural Facial Cleanser
I’ve tried many different homemade facial cleanser recipes over the years. The following is one that I found on Happy Mothering and I have really enjoyed it! …plus, it’s really easy to put together!
Honey/Chamomile Tea Face Wash
Honey/Chamomile Tea Face WashDifficulty: Easy

- Add honey and chamomile tea to a small mixing bowl, whisk until combined.
- Whisk in Castile soap, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil and essential oils until all is well combined, but not too hard!
