Homemade Makeup Remover

This homemade makeup removing pads are so easy and will take you less than 5 minutes to make. Once you gather all the supplies, these will prove to be significantly cheaper than makeup wipes you will buy in the store. 

Not only that but they are toxic free, no chemicals, and synthetic fragrances. If you don’t wear makeup, these are still for you. They leave your face feeling smooth and refreshed. 


  • 4oz glass jar
  • Cotton rounds
  • 2 Tbsp Distilled Water
  • 1 Tbsp Witch Hazel (I use the Thayers brand)
  • 2 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
  • Optional: Frankincense or Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp Pure Castille Soap (I use Dr. Bronner’s- Make sure you get the baby unscented)


Mix all ingredients together 4 oz. glass jar. Place cotton rounds inside and close the lid. Flip upside down to make sure all rounds are saturated fully.

When using, take a single round out and be use to blot out any of the extra liquid before applying to face. 

I use all Young Living Essential Oils. To learn more about these, check out my Essential Oils page HERE.

  • Saturday Bumpday! 🤰🏼 17 weeks today! I posted on my blog yesterday all about finding out we were pregnant, a little about my NIPT with @maternit21plus , and our gender reveal video and more pictures!! The link is in my bio 💙
  • This little handsome guy turned T W O ✌🏼 yesterday and we get to celebrate him this weekend! It’s safe to say he’s really got the whole stud number down in his 2 short years. I feel so grateful to have friends with kids the same age and I love getting to watch them grow together! Happy Birthday sweet Camden! 🎉💙 #ittakesavillage
  • S I X T E E N  W E E K S today! Time seems to be flying by with this little boy! 💙 Cary and I each have two boy names we love, sadly they aren’t the same ones. We agreed on our little gal, Teagan, so quickly so please HELP and comment below and leave your suggestions on baby boy names! 💙
  • They haven’t yet mastered how to show each other affection! Teagan’s like “don’t touch me, boy!” And Cam’s like “get off my fire truck 🚒 “ I swear watching these two grow up together has been one of the highlights for me 😍
  • I’m afraid to say it but I feel like I might be turning a page slowly with this Hyperemesis. While that part of pregnancy has completely sucked, taken the joy out of my days, and made being a good mom to Teagan really difficult, there is one thing that has made this pregnancy so much easier and that’s @maternit21plus 💙 their non invasive prenatal test has taken some stress out of my days knowing my sweet little boy is healthy and I don’t have to worry about any surprises in his genetic health come September. That is getting me through each hard day of this pregnancy. We can’t wait to meet you little guy 💙💙 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • I’m 15 weeks pregnant today. I don’t even know how that’s possible! People aren’t lying when they said time goes by so quickly the second pregnancy. Feeling so grateful to be growing this little guy and chasing my sweet girl around🤰🏼

  • I don’t know how I survived life or motherhood before I started using oils. I turn to these products for my energy boost, to give me a good nights sleep, for a little extra confidence, to tame toddler tantrums, to support a healthy pregnancy and so much more. I was so skeptical but I jumped in with both feet and we’ve never looked back 🌿
  • Those moments when you really hope your child’s sass will help them lead a company and not a prison gang 🤦🏼‍♀️
