My friend introduced me to a great makeup remover pad recipe and I am hooked.  It’s super simple to make and quicker than going to the store to buy!

What you will need:

  • 8 ounce mason jar (or two 4-ounce mason jars)
  • 25-30 cotton rounds
  • 1/4 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 tsp castile soap (I use unscented but you can also use rose)
  • 2 Tbsp witch hazel
  • 1 drop vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 4 drops lavender
  • 4 drops tea tree oil aka Melaleuca oil
  • 2 drops frankincense
  • 1 drop rose oil (optional–I don’t have this one yet!)


  1. Place half of the cotton rounds into the jar.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together.
  3. Pour half of the mixture over the cotton rounds.
  4. Add the rest of the cotton rounds to the jar.
  5. Pour the remaining mixture over the cotton rounds.

Botta-bing, botta-boom. Done. These can be used on your whole face and are soooo refreshing! Have fun making these yourself!
