A month ago, I used a DIY: Brush Cleanser with tea tree oil and alcohol to spot clean my make up brushes. Unfortunately, it dried my brush and so, I looked for another option. Fortunately, I was able to “save” the brush by deep cleaning it using the cleaning agent mentioned in my that blog entry. So now, 2 of the brushes that became a bit dry/”hard” on the skin is back to its soft texture.
Then, I made my own version of it with just a minor twist in the end. I added a few drops of lavender (to disinfect and to balance the earthy smell of tea tree oil and the “pastry”-like smell of the witchhazel.
Here’s my recipe:
- Tea Tree Oil
- Lavender Oil
- 30ml Spray bottle
- Fill the bottle (~25ml)
- Mix in 3ml Tea Tree Oil (TTO). But this depends on how strong you want TTO be. In the video the recommendation is 1 part TTO and 2 parts Witchhazel. For a 30 ml bottle that’s 10ml TTO and 20ml Witchhazel.
- Mix in a few drops of Lavender Oil (since it’s a bit strong, I just mixed 2-3 drops).
- Shake, shake, shake everytime you use it.
