Refreshing (and affordable!) homemade facial toner

My favorite (and affordable) homemade facial toner:

Ingredients:

  • Aloe Vera juice [your preference – can find in Wal-Mart or health food store.  I usually order mine from iHerb for quality and price (link at bottom of page) but have used the aloe juice from Wal-Mart/Walgreens]
  • Witch Hazel (from Wal-Mart)
  • Orange Essential Oil
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil [Can be pricey unless you order online.  I order the NOW brand essential oils from iHerb.  But you might prefer Young Living or Rocky Mountain Oils]
  • Any other essential oils you enjoy (and omit any of the above as you prefer)
  • Small spray bottle (preferably glass – I recycled one from another toner)

For a 3.4oz bottle, fill halfway with Witch Hazel.  Add 25-40 drops of each oil.  It smells lovely until the Tea Tree oil is added; so back off the Tea Tree oil if you’re going for aroma.  I have also been told (but haven’t noticed) Orange oil makes the skin more sensitive to the sun; so keep this in mind.  Also, for sensitive skin, use less oil.  Fill the rest with Aloe Vera juice.  Leave room in the bottle to shake/mix (which you’ll need to do before each application).

Tighten spray lid, shake, spray and enjoy!
