Lavender Honey Face Wash: 5-Minute Facial Cleanser

homemade honey face wash in a small bottle on a white plate with lavender flowers and honey scoop

Skin smoothing face wash with lavender essential oil.


  • 1/3 cup of Dr. Bronners Castile Soap (use lavender scented if you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup of raw honey (I recommend raw honey for the best results)
  • 3 tbsp of distilled or boiled water
  • 2 tbsp of nourishing oil – I used argan oil because that is what I had on hand.  You could also use jojoba, almond, avocado, or olive oil.
  • 510 drops of lavender essential oil (use 10 if you have the unscented castile soap)
  • A clean container for storing your face wash, like a mason jar


Pour 1/3 cup of castile soap into your jar.

Add 1/3 cup of honey

Then, add the water, argan oil, and lavender essential oil.

Finally, shake to combine, and you’re ready to use this face wash!


You’ll see how each ingredient separates with the honey settling on the bottom after you combine the ingredients (or if you haven’t used it for a while). Just close and gently shake your bottle to be sure it is well mixed before using.
