About This Homemade Face Wash

This face wash recipe is absolutely amazing because it actually foams up and gives you a really deep, exfoliating clean. The orange and lemon peel powders work hard to remove dead skin cells, so if you have super sensitive skin, you may want to slightly adjust those amounts. The chamomile and lavender are perfect for soothing and calming dry, irritated skin, while the calendula powder is amazing for acne. Alternatively, you can also add in 1/2 teaspoon of activated charcoal for advanced acne. You can also swap out the lemongrass essential oil for your favorite scent such as lavender, grapefruit, etc…The possibilities are endless!
