Almond Oil

Almond Oil is a fantastic ingredient in exfoliating face wash. Not only does it moisturize and nourish the skin, leaving it feeling supple and healthy, but it also dilutes essential oils safely, allowing for safe and effective topical application.

Tea Tree Essential Oil

When it comes to skincare, Tea Tree Essential Oil is the perfect ingredient. This extraordinary oil is great for exfoliating face washes thanks to its properties that help clean deep within the pores. Tea Tree Essential Oil also reduces the appearance of blemishes. In addition, it has soothing properties so that you can use it on any type of skin without worries.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.
