A Sweet Facial Cleanser


Here’s another use for your giant bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Castille Soap—make a facial cleanser with it. I got this recipe from Janice Cox’s book, Natural Beauty At Home. Mix 2 tablespoons liquid castile soap with ¼ cup honey and ¼ cup distilled water, and pour into a clean container, preferably one with a pump.
Does cleaning your face with honey sound like a sticky mess? The soap and water dilute the honey enough to make a mild lather like any commercial-brand cleanser. But unlike those products, this cleanser doesn’t dry out my skin because honey is very moisturizing.

I've never thought of making my own "sweet" cleanser. Thanks for the "food" for thought! :)

That sounds good enough to eat (almost)! My sister made me some facial scrub with sugar once, and it worked surprisingly well.

Thanks for the Thrifty Green Thursday idea!
