Lavender & Witchazel Cleanser

Ingredients

10g Cocoa Butter

10g Shea Butter

15g Coconut Oil (solid)

5g Jojoba Wax

10g Witchazel

a few drops lavender oil

Method

Melt the Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil & Jojoba Wax in a bain-marie or a bowl over a pan of hot water. Once everything has melted, remove from heat and leave to cool slightly. Gradually stir in the witchhazel (or if you are making a bigger batch use a stick blender), continue to stir while the mixture cools. You can put it in the fridge for a few minutes, then stir some more until all of the witchazel is mixed in.  Once its a thick but pourable consistency add the essential oils and pour into a clean glass jar. Refridgerate to set it completely.

To use, massage a small amount over the face to dissolve make up and remove with a muslin cloth or face flannel that has been soaked in (not too) hot water.
