Don’t waste your money on commercial make-up remover. Not when an ingredient as simple as coconut or olive oil can do the job while simultaneously nourishing the delicate skin on your face. If you want to go that step further and have some lovely make-up remover made up and on hand, then you must try this recipe. A few simple ingredients and less than 2 minutes of your time is all that is required!
You’ll notice I have INIKA make-up in the background… Organic, beautiful, lasting. Three things I am now very fond of when it comes to painting my face (not that I do it often!!). Oh, and they’re Aussies, YAY!! Adorn is another brand I’m loving!

My Choice of Essential Oils
My favourite essential oils in this recipe are frankincense, geranium and lavender, 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 on essential oils.
1. Add castile soap and essential oils to a bowl and swirl gently to combine.
2. Wait a few minutes (this gives the essential oils time to disperse within the castile soap).
3. Add coconut oil and hot water and mix until oil has dissolved and mixture is combined.
4. Transfer into container of choice.
Dip cotton wool or reusable cloth pad into jar and gently wipe over face and neck to remove make-up. You may need to repeat this step a few times. Since oil and water don’t mix, you’ll need to shake well prior to each use.
