Quick & Easy DIY Facial Cleanser
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup fresh frozen aloe or aloe gel
  • 2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 5-7 drops of essential oils (optional)
  1. In a double boiler*, melt the coconut oil.
  2. As soon as the coconut oil is almost melted fully, remove it from heat.
  3. Add aloe and baking soda.
  4. As soon as the mixture is cool, stir in essential oils.
Double-Boiler: Fill a medium pot halfway with water. Add the mixture to a dedicated wide-mouth pint-sized mason jar. No need to wash between each use. Simply store it in a cool, dry place for the next batch.

Stove: Gas stoves run hot. So set your gas stove no higher than 2. On an electric stove, warm the double boiler on the lowest setting. Preparing this recipe on an electric stove will take longer. But doing so on the lowest heat setting will help prevent the coconut oil from separating.

Optional Essential Oils: Lavender and frankincense are recommended. Use 3 to 5 drops of lavender and 2 drops of frankincense. Additionally, you may follow this with Bragg apple cider vinegar as a toner.
