Calendula & Honey Gentle Cleanser

This post may contain affiliate links.

This is a super easy cleanser to get started with if you are just beginning your organic maker journey. I particularly love this one if your skin is sensitive or irritated as the calendula is very gentle and healing, while the honey gives skin a glow. Calendula soothes skin while honey softens as it gently cleanses. Don’t worry that you’ll feel honey stickiness from this formula; the honey rinses beautifully with warm water. 

Using Honey for skin is always a good idea. Mixed with natural ingredients, found in your kitchen, makes for effective and inexpensive beauty treatment. Applying honey regularly on your skin can give you results beyond your imagination and can go a long way in giving you healthy, younger looking and glowing skin.

Calendula has nourishing benefits that help to plump the surface of your skin to give you tighter, more supple skin. In the long term, both the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help to protect your skin's collagen and elastin supply. Calendula has healing properties, which helps to relieve dryness, flaking and etching. 

You Need:


To Make:

  1. Combine the boiling water and calendula flowers in a small bowl and steep for 15 minutes.
  2. Strain off herbs and transfer the infusion into a small, clean bottle. Add the honey and shake gently to mix (and shake before each use). To use, place a small amount in your palm and massage onto damp skin using small, circular motions.
  3. Rinse with warm water.
