As y’all know, I love replacing conventional chemical-laden personal products with all natural homemade products infused with essential oils. Some essential oils are used in my recipes more than others – melaleuca alternifolia, or tea tree essential oil, is one such powerhouse.
This essential oil is used in almost all of my skincare DIY essential oils recipes! I use it in my facial oils, my make up removal wipes, my blemish roll-on…you get the idea. 🙂
I wanted to share with you my recipe for make up removal wipes. I use these every evening, and they work so much better than the store bought ones!
To get started, you’ll need the following:
- distilled water
- fractionated coconut oil
- cotton rounds
- Young Living melaleuca alternifolia essential oil
- a little jar to keep it in(I used a 4 oz. jar I had on hand)
All you have to do is pour enough distilled water in the jar to fill it about halfway. Add 2 T of FCO, and about 8 drops of tea tree oil. (I like to add a few drops of lavender too, but it’s totally optional!) Close the jar and shake. Open the jar, and add 20-40 cotton rounds. Close and shake again.
(If you like camping/backpacking, pack a few of these in a little zip loc bag. They’re so refreshing to use after you’ve spent a day in the woods!)
