Fragrant February - Honey Cleanser

Was reminded of this gentle honey based cleanser from a newsletter we published well over a decade ago.

Honey gently softens and cleanses the skin. This is a mild cleanser that works well for dry skin types. It is wonderful, leaving your skin so soft and moist! Its not at all sticky and can be used as either a facial cleanser or bath gel. I fill empty honey squeeze bottles with this cleanser. Makes a nice gift.

Stir together:  
1/4 cup honey  (We buy from local beekeepers!)
1 tablespoon liquid castile soap
1/4 cup glycerine
10 drops of your favourite essential oil, depending on your skin type.  Click here for suggested essential oils for various skin types.

Mix together all ingredients and pour into a clean squeeze bottle. Remember to use non breakable containers if you are going to be using it inthe tub or shower.
Wet face, apply just a tiny bit of the blend,  lather well, rinse.

My mature skin likes Frankincense with a drop or two of Rose at night.  Pink Grapefruit makes a wonderful morning shower.
