I am going to admit it, I am still very new to essential oils.  I have used essential oils in my DIY Linen Spray and in my Homemade Body Butter, but I had no idea of all the uses.  I simply thought of the as an easy way to add scents to homemade goodies.  Of course, essential oils can definitely do that, but they can do SO much more.  Plus, they are natural and chemical free.  When I started to learn about essential oils, I was a bit taken back by the prices, I mean some can be pretty darn expensive!  So, I put off learning more about essential oils yet again.  Then I discovered Simply Earth.

Simply Earth is a purpose-driven company, they sell the same 100% pure essential oils that you’re used to at more economical prices. They also donate 13% of all of their profits to help end human trafficking.

So, not only are they a company that understands that we like to save a buck when we can, they also give back to those in need, but they make using essential oils easy.  For those of us that are new to essential oils, or those that have already mastered the art of creating with essential oils, the Essential Oil Recipe Box by Simply Earth is for you.

Today, I am going to share the Natural Facial Cleanser Recipe. My kids are to the age they are washing their faces themselves (even though I have to remind them) and I have no desire for them to be using soaps that are unnatural and end up burning their eyes more than wash their faces. Plus, I like to use a natural soap for that exact reason, I don’t need to be putting stuff on my face and around my eyes that I can’t pronounce either. I know that all natural and organic cleansers can cost a pretty penny at the store, so I love this Natural Facial Cleanser Recipe, it smells great, it’s easy to make, there are no harsh chemicals, it doesn’t cost a fortune at the store, and if you run out, you can make another batch in just minutes!

Now, here is the Natural Facial Cleanser Recipe that came in my Simply Earth Subscription Box. Be sure to Print It and Pin It so that you can make it again and again.
