Essential oils definitely are great and effective agents for cleansing and different oils have different purposes. Using them as blends synergistically can yield great results eliminating the requirement of soap based cleansers like face washes etc. The essential oils of geranium, sandalwood, rosemary, and lime are also great for the same purpose. Phi, Earth's Apothecary has created a cleanser with the antibacterial clary sage, the stimulating and detoxifying lemon and the purifying juniper berry essential oils. Its effective for all skin types and is a gentle cleanser with deep pore cleansing action.
