Lemon Mint Cleanser for Normal, Combination, Oily, or Acneic Skin

This cleanser will thoroughly clean skin without stripping it. The essential oil blend helps treat and prevent breakouts. Leaves skin feeling refreshed and not overly dry.


1/4 cup liquid castile soap (I like lavender Dr. Bronner’s)

1/8 cup distilled or spring water

1 T aloe vera gel

1 T witch hazel

1 tsp. vegetable glycerine

1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

10 drops lemon essential oil

7 drops peppermint essential oil

5 drops lavender essential oil

5 drops rose essential oil

5 drops tea tree oil

1/4 tsp vitamin E oil (to preserve)

Whisk together castile soap and water. Add aloe and witch hazel and whisk. Add all other ingredients and whisk. Transfer to a pump bottle and use morning and night. If you double cleanse, precede with oil cleanser in the evening. Shake before use.
