One of the reasons I procrastinate this chore is because it usually requires me standing over the sink washing and rinsing, washing and rinsing for what feels like forever. There has to be a faster and more effective way right? I have bought products specifically made for cleaning makeup brushes and have not found them to expedite the process. Plus, they’re usually comprised of some not so great for you ingredients. So the other day, I had an idea! What if I add a drop of Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) oil? My thinking was, it’s so great at zapping my zits, maybe it would help to really clean my brushes and prevent future breakouts. So I added a drop to the cleanser I was using, (I make my own) you can get my easy and non-toxic recipe here. To my surprise the makeup was melting away. To say Melaleuca Alternifolia sped up the process is an understatement! I have never experienced anything like this, even with products specifically made for this purpose. This beauty hack is just too good not to share!

Here’s what I do.

For my brushes and powder pads, I add a pump or two of cleanser to my palm, then a drop of Melaleuca Alternifolia. Then I swirl and press the brush/pad into my palm to release the makeup, rinse with water and repeat until completely clean. It used to take me at least 10 minutes to clean one brush! Now I can do one brush within 1-2 minutes!

Here’s why I love this so much!

Not only am I saving time, (maybe not a lot, but hey when you’re a Mom every minute matters. 😉 But, I also have peace of mind knowing my brushes are squeaky clean and free from the zit causing nasties. Most of all, I love that I don’t need to use toxic products to get the job done!

It’s so cool, you just have to try it!

I’m so happy Melaleuca Alternifolia is now included in the Premium Starter Kit. I keep finding fabulous new ways to use this oil and it has quickly become one of my favorites!

Happy Oiling,
