Today I wanted to share a quick recipe for lavender oil facial cleanser. It’s used for the oil cleansing method and if you’re not familiar with the oil cleansing method, I recommend checking out this post first.

This cleanser takes just a few simple ingredients and can be put together in less than a minute. Ready to get started?



Mix all of the ingredients in a small bottle with a cap. Add a label so you know what’s inside.

Makes approx. ⅓ cup cleanser.

To Use

  1. Pour about 1 tsp of oil into cupped palm.
  2. Rub oil between hands to warm it.
  3. Apply oil to face, massaging into skin gently, using small circles. Be patient and breathe deeply for stress relief. This should be done from about 30 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on available time.
  4. Soak washcloth in warm water and wring out so it is damp, not soaking.
  5. Apply over face and allow it to warm your skin for a few moments, inhaling,enjoying the lovely essential oils.
  6. Gently wipe the oil from your face using the washcloth, being careful not to pull skin or rub too hard.
  7. Repeat a 2nd time or simply follow with moisturizer or a small amount of whipped body butter.
