Take Control of Your Skin with a DIY Cleansing Aloe Vera Face Wash
Tackling the research and trial and error of replacing your skincare products is one the most rewarding things you can do for yourself!
If you’ve taken my Beginner Natural Bath and Body Course you know I suffered from a multitude of skin issues. I’ve learned that what we put on our skin matters.
This DIY aloe vera face wash was one of the first and biggest changes I made. With this simple aloe vera face wash, my hydrating facial toner, and aloe vera face cream – I have been able to take control of hormonal breakouts and you can too!

Cleansing Aloe Vera Face Wash Ingredients:
- ¼ cup distilled water
- 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
- ½ cup almond liquid castile soap
- 1 tablespoon jojoba oil
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 10 drops chamomile essential oil
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops tea tree essential oil
- 1 pump bottle, 8-ounce amber glass
Instructions to Make a Cleansing Aloe Vera Face Wash:
In a glass mixing bowl combine water and aloe vera gel. Whisk well until thoroughly combined.
Add liquid castile soap, jojoba oil, and honey. Whisk to combine and each drop of chamomile, lavender, and tea tree essential oils. Using a funnel pour into a bottle with a pump dispenser, (this is the amber glass bottle I use). Yields: 8 ounces. Use within two months.
How To Use:
Use Cleansing-Aloe Vera Face Wash twice daily. I love how this face wash starts with gentle almond liquid castile soap and ends with balancing jojoba oil. Apply to skin and lather. Wash with warm water.
I no longer feel the sting of drying chemicals when washing my face as I did with store bought cleaners. Instead, I actually look forward to my nightly skincare routine!
Replacing skincare products loaded with chemicals for natural ingredients has made a big impact on the health and appearance of my skin.
If you have acne prone or oily skin I highly recommend this homemade face wash. I rarely carry a sheen on my face anymore and my complexion is much clearer!
