Here’s an easy way to make your own Homemade Makeup Remover if you love Essential Oils. You will LOVE this DIY!
The best part about this makeup remover is that it has only a handful of ingredients ~ most of which any Oily person would have in their cabinet.
This makeup remover takes just a few seconds to whip up ~ even better, if you don’t wear makeup (like me!) it works JUST as well as a skin freshener, too! You can make it in a smaller jar (like we have pictured below) or, you can double or triple the recipe to make a larger amount.
My 10 year old loves using these pads in the morning to freshen her face before school… and I don’t have to worry about harmful, toxic ingredients since she is so young.
If you don’t have V6 Carrier Oil from Young Living you can incorporate fractionated coconut oil too – it works just as well.
The best container we have found for these pads are the 4 oz. Jelly Jars ~ you can pick up on Amazon for a great price!

- 1 Tbsp Non-Alcoholic Witch Hazel
- 2 Tbsp Young Living V6 Carrier Oil (or, use fractionated coconut oil!)
- 2 Tbsp Distilled Water
- 4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Optional: Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Organic Cotton Rounds
- 4 oz Glass Jar with a lid (Jelly Jars work super for this!)
To make: Mix the Witch Hazel, Carrier Oil, Water, and Lavender together in a 4 oz glass jar with lid ~ set 10 of the cotton rounds within. Screw on the lid, and gently turn upside down to saturate the pads.
To use: Remove one, and blot out the extra liquid – then close your eyes, and gently wipe your face from cosmetics or, to freshen skin.
