Green Tea and Apple Cleanser


In a recent post, I raved to you about the fabulous natural perfuming power of powdered apple. After enjoying it as an addition to my foaming hair and body wash, I just had to add it to a face cleanser to see how it fares in an anhydrous formula.

Guess what.

It fares quite happily.

The scent of fresh apple is an absolutely fabulous treat to the nose while the rest of the ingredients are do their gently cleansing duty.

Here's a peek at the ingredients and process of putting together my latest cleanser.




To complement the apple, chamomille, amla and green tea were chosen. The dried herbs were duly pulverized to ensure the smoothest of face cleansing experiences.


The dried ingredients were added to (gently heated) palm and castor oils, mixed and packaged.




Here's the mixture right after pouring.

This type of soap-free cleanser is relatively easy to make and can be tailored to your desires and preferences.

Hi Tina - Thanks! I almost feel like they are good enough to eat too!

Hi Anon - Amle and apple powder can both be purchased at the French company Aroma Zone. If you donut speak French, try visiting the site through Google Translate - voilá- all English!

Hi Olivia - I wish there was a scent button too! :)
