Sensitive Skin Cleanser

This is my recipe for my really gentle facial cleanser. I’ve been asked about it so often I thought I’d repost on my new blog.

3 Tablespoons bentonite clay. I use ” Aztec Secret healing clay” from whole foods.

8 drops Lavender  oil

8 drops Tee tree oil (an anti fungal. optional, but  I use it because I live in a rural Mexico town with unpaved streets and free range horses and chickens. ’nuff said?)

8 drops Camellia seed oil (also optional but good for aging)

I mix the oils and clay in a little pot and add as much water as needed to make a paste. 

I use this as a facial soap and it is cleansing but not irritating when cetaphil is too abrasive for my face.
