Make your own soap-free facial cleansing gel – it's fun and (almost) as easy as making a cup of tea!

This gentle gel will effectively remove make-up (except waterproof mascara) and cleanses skin without drying it, leaving your face and neck smooth, clean, and refreshed.

Can be used as any other face cleanser or – for added moisturizing action – leave the gel on for 2-minutes as an instant mask.

Elder blossom skin cleansing gel is suitable for all skin types. 

The kit includes everything you need to make 2 bottles of cleanser: 

  • 2 packets of gel-base mixture

  • 2 infusion bags

Why Elder Blossom

Elder (sambucus nigra) grows predominately in the Northern Hemisphere. The pleasantly fragrant blossoms are used for many culinary purposes (from teas, syrups & cordials to a batter-frittered crunchy treat), but elder blossoms also offer benefits with topical use. The natural content of mucilage makes elder a great choice for a gentle, yet effective skin cleanser.

Elder has a history of use that stretches as far back as ancient Egypt - both the blossom and the berries. Elder blossom has been a traditional ingredient in poultices for rash and irritation. An infusion of the blossoms was also recommended as a rinse for irritated scalp. 

Elder blossom has a naturally delicate fragrance that is a little reminiscent of chamomile. 

Making Your Own Elder Blossom Cleansing Gel

Depending on how long you let the packet infuse (from 5 - 15 minutes), your cleansing gel will be a deeper or lighter color. The photos above show the color variation from a short (5 min) to longer (15 min) infusion. The included instructions go through every step in detail so you can make the gel to your personal preference.

I hope you have as much enjoyment making and using this gel cleanser as I had developing it.
