Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 3.28.02 PMThis post comes from AJ in Reykjavík, Iceland! She wrote in to tell me how much she was loving her ShamPHree hair, and wanted to share this recipe for a DIY facial cleanser.

*The Photo came from a sugar scrub recipe on a blog called Doula Notes. Yum!

” I’d like to share with you my latest recipe for facial cleanser. I use it twice a day ( ok, I plan on using it twice a day… But sometimes.. you know:)

Coconut Sugar Perfect Facial Cleanser Recipe


2 tblsp coconut oil
1 tblsp honey
1/2 tblsp sugar
1/2 tblsp baking soda
2 drops sandalwood EO
2 drops orange EO
1 drop lavender EO

How to use it……

mix, I saw you already know about the “mixing coconut oil and honey”-problem, apply generously to face, let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse with a wash cloth and warm water. Afterwards I moisturize with coconut oil+lavender EO. My skin has never been better, I’ve been following this routine for years and haven’t bought any commercial skin care products. And haven’t missed them.”

    Actually, baking soda is *not* good for skin at all. It has an incredibly high pH, like 9+, which is not a good thing! Besides, you’ve already got sugar and honey in the recipe, it doesn’t need any more grit. 🙂
