Make-Up Brush Cleaner

2 Small glass bowls or shot glasses

Fractionated Coconut Oil

1-2 drops Tea Tree essential oil

1-2 drops Rosemary essential oil

1-2 drops Grapefruit essential oil

Castile Soap

Running water

Paper towels


Pour a little Fractionated Coconut Oil into a small glass bowl or shot glass.  Add essential oils and stir to combine.

Pour a little Castile Soap into another small glass bowl.

Swirl your make-up brushes in the oil solution until you see the make-up stored in the brush start to come out (about 15-30 seconds).  Rub against the palm of your hand or a paper towel to agitate it a little and loosen the make-up.  Keep the bristles pointed down.

Rinse the brush under warm running water.  Gently squeeze the brush bristles until the water runs clear.  **Make sure to point the bristles down in this whole process.  If tipped with the bristles up, the oils and water may loosen the glue that holds the bristles to the brush and shorten the life of your brushes.

Swirl the brush in the Castile Soap for 15 seconds and rinse again with warm water.  This helps remove the oils from the brush.

Gently squeeze all the liquid from the brushes and hang your brushes to dry (bristles pointed down) or lay flat to dry on a towel.
