K2 Honey Face Wash
1/8 cup raw honey (Real raw honey has amazing health benefits including antioxidant power, antimicrobial properties to kill harmful bacteria that cause acne, and skin-softening properties. More about honey here!)
1/3 cup Glycerin (Glycerin moisturizes the skin and helps the mixture to blend)
1 Tablespoon castile soap (Dr. Bronners)
Essential Oils of your choice to desired strength (I used 20 drops total): Orange, geranium, or Lemon for clogged pores, Melaleuca or Thieves for acne prone skin, Lavender or Myrrh for dry skin, or whichever scent combo makes you feel happy!
Mix, then pour into your hands or use on a soft face cloth to clean and soften skin. Think happy thoughts while using.

Store the remainder in the fridge and refill the spray bottle as needed; it will keep forever. Shake well and lightly spray your face whenever your skin or your outlook needs refreshing.
(For dry skin, add 1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerine, a humectant that draws water from the air to condition the skin and is available at natural markets, or 1 teaspoon avocado or almond oil. For oily skin, add 1 teaspoon of witch hazel.)
