Facial Cleansing Pads
Yes… I make my own facial cleansing pads! And let me till you its way cheaper then paying for the store bought ones you can’t read the ingredients list on. Lets be honest majority probably don’t look at the ingredients anyway…. now I bet you will!!
You will need:
Mason jar and lid
Face Pad cotton rounds
-2 cup Distilled water. You will only use about 1/2 cup but always boil more! (I boil the water for 10 min first)
– 1 tbls Coconut oil
-1 tsp vegetable glicerin
-3or4 Vitamin E Capsules (Cut open and squeeze out the oil)
-2 tsp Aloe Vera Gel
-1/4 cup Witch Hazel
Essential oil of choice I use Tea tree, Frankincense, and Geranium
Start off by boiling 2 cups of water for 10 min (You will only need about 1/2 cup however I boil extra as some will evaporate)
-Add 1/2 cup of the boiled water to a glass measuring cup and let cool slightly, (adding coconut oil and essential oil to boiling water breaks down all the good stuff and we don’t want that so let it cool just enough so the oil melts)
-Mix in coconut oil until its completely melted
-Add the remaining ingredients stiring till completely combined.
-Pour mixture into a mason jar filled with the facial round pads slowly so you don’t waste any of the liquids! I like to pour it slowly down the side so the top pad doesn’t collect all the oil. Push down on the pads to help all the liquid absorb and mix around throughout all the cleansing pads. If more liquid is needed add the remaining water.
**The cleansing pads should be used up with in 2 weeks. Thanks to the tee tree oil the pads will keep this long on your bathroom counter**
