If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I already have a few foaming wash recipes. One for the face, body and hands. So why introduce another face wash recipe? Because this is AMAZING! It is delicious, divine, lush.

I am officially in love with this Deluxe Foaming Face Wash, and my face is a fan too! The inclusion of rose water is a luxurious ingredient in this recipe (it helps to calm irritation, soothe and hydrate skin) however, it may be out of budget for some. If this is the case, you can try lavender water; plain ‘ol water works too – it just won’t have the same blissful aroma in my opinion. 

Note that the video below is for my hand/face/body wash. The only difference is that you’ll use switch out the water for rose water.


Makes: 200 g Prep time: < 5 min.


• 65 g liquid castile soap
• 15-20 drops of essential oils
• 135 g rose water


My favourite essential oils in this recipe are ylang ylang and frankincense, but don’t be limited by my suggestions. Use oils that fit your budget, or those that you already have in your collection. Read here for more information.


Foaming Pump Bottle


1. Add castile soap and essential oils to a bowl and mix until combined.
2. Wait a few minutes (this gives the essential oils time to disperse within the castile soap), add rose water and mix until combined.
3. Transfer into foaming pump bottle.

To Use

Massage 1-2 pumps of foam over face and neck. Rinse with warm water.

Recipe Notes

You might find it easier to add ingredients directly into your soap dispenser (a foaming pump bottle must be used for this recipe).
