As with most things, this face wash was discovered while searching for something else. I was searching for something to heal a scar that I had gotten on my lip. While researching, over and over both lavender oil and tea tree oil came up as solutions to my problem. I figured, if one of them would be helpful, BOTH would be unbelievably healing. I used the combination faithfully on my scar and what was supposed to leave a very prominent mark, has become hardly noticeable. Somewhere along the way I began using this little spot treatment as a full face wash. and I absolutely loved the results. While my scar isn’t completely gone and my skin is FAR from perfect, this oil based face wash daily leaves my face feeling dewy and fresh. It’s all natural so I feel super good about using it, but more than that IT WORKS. It’s gentle and powerful at the same time. If you’re not completely satisfied with your current face wash, give this combo a try and let me know what you think.
3-Ingredient DIY Face Wash
1/3 cup coconut oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
6 drops tea tree essential oil
Heat the coconut oil in a microwave safe container until fully melted, 30-45 seconds. Add in the lavender and tea tree oil drops. Stir. Store in an airtight container in the bathroom and use daily as a face wash. I like to use mine nightly to get all my makeup off and leave my skin feelin’ all dewey before I crawl into bed.
Note: Depending on the temperature in your bathroom, the oil will fluctuate between liquid and solid. Above 76 degrees it will be liquid. Below that and it will be solid. No matter which state it is in it will work well as a facial cleanser.
