All-natural Foaming Face Wash for All Skin Types


I’ve struggled with acne my entire life (even now well into my 30s), and I’ve never found anything that I thought really helped. A few things made it a bit better, but nothing cleared me up completely. Fast forward to about a month ago when I got into making A LOT of my own health & beauty and cleaning products. I decided to give face wash a try, and WOW! After a good deal of research on which ingredients to use, I came up with this awesome recipe. It will work well for ALL skin types,¬†and it helps with acne and other breakouts!

Some of the most sensitive skin on our entire body is on our face. Now, keep that in mind, and take a look at the ingredients in your current face wash. No really, go look. How many things are unrecognizable? Unpronounceable? Artificial? All that stuff can’t possibly be good for your skin – especially the sensitive skin of your face. This recipe is all-natural, making it ideal for all skin types and for sensitive skin.

Since it doesn’t have preservatives, I make it as needed in small batches. The recipe below will fill an 8-ounce foaming pump bottle about 2/3 full. Not sure where to get the bottle? Check here.


  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 2 tbsp liquid castile soap
  • 1 tbsp¬†carrier oil of choice (Not sure which one to choose? Check out this post. I use grapeseed oil.)
  • 15 drops essential oils of choice (Not sure which ones to choose? Check out this post. I use 10 melaleuca and 5 lavender.)

Make It:

  1. Add all ingredients to a foaming pump bottle in the order listed (I find a funnel to be helpful).
  2. Shake gently to combine.

Use It:

  1. Shake gently before each use.
  2. Use one pump per wash.

Cost Comparison:

  • This recipe: 31 cents per ounce
  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Scrub at Walmart, $1.29 per ounce

Looking for a great lightweight moisturizer? My homemade lotion recipe is great for the WHOLE BODY! I use it every day on my face!
