  • 2 cups distilled water (300 ml)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp aloe vera gel
  • 1/3 cup castille soap (100 ml)
  • 5 drops tea tree oil
  • 5 drops grapefruit oil
  • 16 squares cloth


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a waterbath.

  2. Combine everything except the microfiber cloths in a sterilized quart mason jar.

  3. Add the cloth or microfiber squares. Using a clean spoon, submerge and stir the cloth pieces around to ensure they evenly absorb the liquid mixture. 

  4. Seal the jar. To use the wipes, remove a cloth from the jar with clean hands and wipe your face clean avoiding the eyes. Wash the wipe out with warm water, then use it to rinse and soap residual off your face (if you used castille soap).

  5. Put the cloth in the wash and save it for the next batch of cleansing wipes. Store the unused wipes in the fridge and use within one week or add a preservative of your choice to increase the shelf life.
