Below I'm featuring two super effective, easy recipes that you can use to safely clean your face and to keep your age spots away!

Quick & Easy DIY Facial Cleansers

In this simple but effective recipe, a little goes a very long way.

DIY Facial Cleanser
  1. In a double boiler*, melt the coconut oil.
  2. As soon as the coconut oil is almost melted fully, remove from heat.
  3. Add aloe and baking soda.
  4. As soon as the mixture is cool, stir in essential oils.

Fill a medium pot halfway with water. Add the mixture to a dedicated wide-mouth pint sized mason jar. No need to wash between each use. Simply store it in a cool, dry place for the next batch.


Gas stoves run hot. So set your gas stove no higher than 2. On an electric stove, warm the double boiler on the lowest setting. Preparing this recipe on an electric stove will take longer. But doing so on the lowest heat setting will help prevent the coconut oil from separating.

Optional Essential Oils:

Lavender and frankincense are recommended. Use 3 to 5 drops of lavender and 2 drops frankincense. Additionally, you may follow this with Bragg apple cider vinegar as a toner.

This next recipe works well for age spots. You can use it on your face and body.
DIY Facial Cleanser Anti-Aging Combo
  1. Fill the 4.5-ounce bottle with the essential oils first.
  2. Then add the aloe and coconut oil.
  3. Shake vigorously.
Alternatively, you may make this recipe in a Magic Bullet. This method will yield a thicker consistency with a more whitish color, somewhat similar to a paste.

- Add the essential oils to the Magic Bullet.
- Blend ingredients and immediately transfer to a funnel and shake vigorously.
- Fill the 4.5-ounce bottle with the mixture, then cap with a squeezy top.

Safety & Drug Interactions

Are you sure you're using essential oils safely and effectively? Are you confused by dilutions and conversions? 

Let me help you by taking out the guesswork. Download my FREE dilution chart guide HERE!

When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety and, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in long-term human clinical trials. This means that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.

Nonetheless, properly diluting your essential oils is fundamental to safety and effectiveness because they are highly concentrated plant compounds. To help you along your journey, I have a created an easy-to-use dilution guide that you can download for FREE to make sure that all of your topical applications are safe and effective for the entire family.
