Orange & Chamomile Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser Recipe

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

Inspired by Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

Inspired by Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

This all natural foaming facial cleanser lathers as you massage it onto damp or wet skin to wash away excess dirt and makeup, while sweet almond oil – a mild, hypoallergenic oil – helps to protect skin against UV radiation damage as well as aid in keeping skin soft and supple.

Sweet almond oil is especially suited for sensitive skin and is easily absorbed by skin. Due to its high vitamin A content, it can also help to prevent acne. In addition it aids in relieving inflammation, itchiness and redness that may be caused by eczema or psoriasis. (If you suffer from eczema or psoriasis, be sure to also check out my homemade pine tar soap recipe.)

Blood orange essential oil is also wonderful for helping to reduce skin inflammation as well as flushing out toxins, while chamomile has also long been praised for its anti-inflammatory properties in skin care.

Orange & Chamomile Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

7 oz. white granulated sugar
.8 oz. Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Unscented Hemp Liquid Castile Soap
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
.05 oz. castor oil
1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers, ground or chamomile flower powder
1 mL blood orange essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the liquid Castile soap, sweet almond oil and castor oil into a glass container.

Using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the blood orange essential oil and add to the soap and oil mixture.

How to make an exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe for your face!

Whisk well to combine thoroughly. The mixture will kind of resemble scrambled eggs with a bit of butter. (Weird, right?)

Weigh out the sugar into a separate container.

Then measure out the ground chamomile flowers using a measuring spoon and whisk into the sugar.

Slowly pour the sugar and chamomile flower mixture into the container with the liquid mixture, stirring as you go.

Continue mixing until all of the ingredients for your exfoliating foaming cleanser are thoroughly combined.

Inspired by Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

Now spoon your orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser into two 4 oz. glass salve jars. I used the glass jars from Container and Packaging for this project. Screw on the lids of your choice, then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you are making this exfoliating foaming cleanser to sell, you’ll need to label appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale. You may also want to consider a natural preservative.

To use your orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser, simply scoop out the desired amount then massage onto your wet face in circular motion. Rinse, then pat dry and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.

This homemade coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil is inspired by the Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub. Scented with a fresh blend of orange, coconut and cardamom, my coffee scrub recipe contains naturally emollient sweet almond oil, mineral rich pink Himalayan salt, anti-inflammatory blood orange essential oil, brown sugar, and ground coffee to exfoliate, smooth and brighten dull, aging or acne prone skin.

DIY Eyebrow Shaper Wax

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

This DIY eyebrow shaper wax was inspired by NYX’s Eyebrow Shaper Wax. It provides hold without being sticky or leaving clumps behind like other eyebrow shaper wax pencils can. It also won’t pull out eyebrow hair with use as I found was sometimes an issue.

This DIY eyebrow shaper wax is easy to make and contains nourishing natural ingredients. And using lip balm tubes allows for easy pencil like application!

To create my DIY eyebrow shaper wax, I used neem oil, vitamin E and rosemary essential oil based on their hair care properties. I also added a touch of shea nut oil to moisturize and condition. You’ll find that this DIY eyebrow shaper wax is very easy to make. And using lip balm tubes rather than a pot or jar allows for an easy pencil like application! Plus you can even lend a stick to your favorite male to help him tame his own unruly whiskers whether it’s his eyebrows or his mustache!

This DIY eyebrow shaper wax is easy to make and contains nourishing natural ingredients. And using lip balm tubes allows for easy pencil like application!

Eyebrow Shaper Wax Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

16 grams beeswax
6 grams refined coconut oil
4 grams castor oil
2 grams hemp seed oil
1 ml shea nut oil
5 drops 100% neem oil
5 drops vitamin E oil
12 drops rosemary essential oil

Instructions:

You’ll need to use either a double boiler for this eyebrow shaper wax recipe or a microwave at 50% power.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a double boiler. Melt the beeswax. Then weigh out the coconut oil – I used refined coconut oil which has a 76° F melt point but unrefined with a higher melt point will likely work just as well – castor and hemp seed oil. Stir into the melted beeswax.

Using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the shea nut oil and stir into the eyebrow shaper wax concoction. Then using a dropper or transfer pipette add the neem oil, vitamin E oil and rosemary essential oil. Mix well to thoroughly combine all the ingredients then pour into lip balm tubes and allow to cool.

This eyebrow shaper wax recipe yields seven eyebrow shaper waxes in lip balm tubes. Alternately you can also pour this into a 1 oz. tin for use exclusively as a mustache wax.

Need more hold? Simply add more beeswax until you reach desired amount of hold.
