if you prefer to watch a how to video, you can watch us make this on IG-TV.

prep time: 1 minute

lasts: the same shelf life as the coconut oil your using

this is seriously the easiest recipe you'll ever make. 

another DIY natural beauty hack for you! Let’s face it (mind the pun) if you like to wear makeup, there’s no need to remove it by adding more nasties and chemicals to your face! the earth provides us with everything we need to be naturally beautiful and cleanse our skin. 


I started using this recipe years ago when a friend told me how using coconut oil to cleanse her skin helped stop oily skin and acne breakouts. sounds counterintuitive right?! adding oil to oily skin can help improve it?! well in a bid to clear my own greasy pores, I gave it a shot, mixed some up, and I’ve been hooked since! 


coconut oil - natural antifungal and antibacterial properties

tea tree oil - used since the dawn of time for its natural antiseptic

peppermint oil - awesome natural cleanser and leaves skin feeling fresh 

it took about a week to notice improvement in my oily skin, about 4 weeks to notice I was barely breaking out in spots, and about 6 weeks to see an overall improvement in skin tone. if you don’t have the essential oils you can just use coconut oil, but we recommend getting the oils for the full benefit! 

you save money because you can double up using household products AND also reduce the waste from your household! AND you can lather on your hair for a deep nourish mask, or use sparingly as hair finishing oil AND face moisturiser AND makeup brush cleaner - seriously a little wonder mix!!
