Face wipes

I have created my own essential oil based face wipes to help improve my skin. I am guilty as charged when it comes to picking my zits, whether it is a black head or a white head or something in between. On top of masks and moisturizing, these wipes have worked wonders.


  • 1-2 cups of water
  • 2 table spoons of witch hazel
  • 10 drops of frankincense
  • 10 drops of tea tree
  • 10 drops of patchouli
  • cotton rounds
  • container to store

combine and pour over wipes…TA DA!

-you can purchase the above essential oils at walgreens for convenience, or amazon.com, or through any essential oil membership platform


  • in the shower, I use a black head scrub from biore
  • after my shower, I take a hot wash cloth and steam open my pores. I will squeeze out any visible black head or white head
  • recleanse with cetaphil gentle face wash
  • essential oil wipes*
  • moisturizer

*on the occasion that my black heads are really noticeable, I will coat my face in a layer of clearisil acne cream after I apply my wipes. I notice that is shrinks and cleanses the pores even more, but it does dry out my skin so I don’t do this step all the time.

I also will rewipe my face once or twice more before I go to bed. My skin stays soft, and clears up over night. I repeat wipes and moisturizer in the AM before work and apply tea tree periodically during the day as a spot treatment
