I am eliminating more and more “purchased” products to ones that I can make at home with simple, natural ingredients. I use Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap for my hand soap and spray cleaner so it was a natural base for gentle, homemade, vegan face soap. I love this formula; it leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry, and I apply my face moisturizer after washing for great healthy skin!
- 1/2 cup distilled water
- 1 tablespoon of Dr. Bronner’s baby mild liquid soap
- 1 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin
- 12 drops of lavender essential oil
- 4 drops of tea tree essential oil
Put all of the ingredients in a foaming hand soap container and shake. For the first week, I shake this before using it, but then it stays mixed.
You can adjust the formula to meet your skin needs. Increase the soap for oily skin. Increase the glycerin for dry skin and/or add a few drops of jojoba oil.
