Ingredients Needed for DIY Aloe Vera Face Wash

To make your aloe vera face wash, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Fresh Aloe Vera Gel: Extract from the aloe vera plant or use store-bought organic aloe vera gel.
  • Castile Soap: A gentle, natural soap that cleanses without stripping your skin of its natural oils.
  • Essential Oils: Optional, for added fragrance and skin benefits. Lavender, tea tree, or chamomile oils are great choices.
