Homemade Facial Toning Water

Facial toners are great in giving your skin a more vibrant, clear, pure, healthy glow while help to keep it smooth, moisturized and diminish acne.

While commercial brands are filled with all kinds of chemicals aside from the ingredients that you actually need, why not home make your own and reduce cost as well as increase their efficiency?

Here are a few very simple recipes:

Tea Tree Facial Toner

70 ml distilled (or just boil water and let cool completely)
10-12 drops Tea Tree essential oil
-> Boil the water, let it cool, add the essential oil.

Green Tea Facial Toner

2 teaspoons powdered green tea
>1/2 cup boiling water
-> Steep the green tea in boiling water for about 10 minutes, let cool before use.

Rosewater Facial Toner

100 ml distilled water
12-15 drops of Rose essential oil
-> Mix the water with the essential oil.

or all the way homemade Rosewater Toner

Gather fresh rose blossoms.
Be careful to gather fresh rose petals and never use petals that have been sprayed with pesticides.

->Place the petals in a pan covering them with fresh distilled water and place a heat resistant dish directly over the petals to make them lay on the bottom of the pan.
Put the pan over a low heat for about 45 minutes to an hour, do not boil! As the water heats up you will begin to see drops of rose oil forming on the surface of the water.
Soon the water will begin to have a rosy color to it and feel thick and oily, this means it is ready.
When the petals have cooled use a tea strainer to strain the liquid and use your fingers to squeeze as much liquid from the pedals as possible. 
Store in the refrigerator.

Use any toning water after you’ve cleansed your face with soap, shake before use and apply on your face with a cotton ball.
Let your skin dry like that before you apply face cream.

I’m currently using the Tea Tree Facial Toner every night after washing my face. It’s just great!

Give them a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed :)
