Jasmine Face Wash and Ingredients
Now on to my favorite natural Jasmine Face and Body Wash Recipe.

I started making this face wash in February, and it is a great all purpose face wash.  It even removes makeup.  I was looking for something simple and natural, since I have skin allergies.  I also wanted something that did not have chemicals.  I looked at many recipes, and eventually decided to just make something that would clean my face and still moisturize my skin a little. It also works great as a body wash.

Jasmine Natural Face and Body Wash

8 oz Dr. Bonner's Baby-Mild Castille Soap
8 oz distilled water
1 TB Almond oil
20 drops jasmine fragrance
10 drops geranium essential oil

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.  Then pour into a pump bottle.

Rinse face with water and then use 1 squirt of face wash and start washing face.   I wash my face for approximately 1 minute, concentrating around my nose, chin, and forehead, then rinse well.

You can use a toner after if you like to close your pores, and then moisturize.  You can use my Anti-Aging Moisturizer.  The link is below.

    1. Kim,
      I hope that you like the face and body wash. This is the only thing that I use to wash my face anymore. I am a convert. Jasmine is my favorite scent also. I think Wednesday's blog is a recipe for a jasmine scented oil, so check back.
      I hope you enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Sounds nice. Like you, I have become allergic to most 'commercial' type cosmetics, lotions and potions. I have switched to using only Dr. Bronners Castille soap for bathing and essential oils. I also use a lot of apple cider vinegar in my baths, with a personally mixed blend of oils to soften and protect the skin. It is UNbelievable the change in my skin, my ability to get out in the sun (I have Lupus) and the difference in how my skin feels to live in! I use mostly peppermint, rosemary, lavender for bathing, for facial pampering and even for scalp oil.

    1. You can use any essential oil that you like. I Sweet Orange is great. I have also used tangerine, and also spearmint and lavender. I love that last combination.
      Have fun playing with this. It should be fun.
      Enjoy!!!

    1. I'm sorry, since you're a no reply blogger I can't answer by email. I don't think I have had this sitting around any longer then 3 to 4 months. We use it fairly quickly, it may last longer, but I can't tell you for sure.
      Thanks so much for stopping by.

  8. Could I use castile bar soap and melt it down? If so, suggestions how to do this? I have 3 bars.

    1. I'm sorry, since you're a no reply blogger I can't answer by email. You could probably melt it down with about 4 cups of water, but that is just a guess. I haven't tried that before for this. I have melted the soap down for shave cream and shave soap, and I just use a small amount of water for that. Start with 2 cups and if it still seems too thick, then add more. I would also use distilled water to make sure that you don't get any bacteria in your soap.
      Let me know how this works.
