DIY Balancing Facial Toner with Essential Oils

June 14, 2022 1 min read

Are you using a toner as part of your daily skincare regime? Toners remove impurities, hydrate your skin and tighten pores. It’s even better if you make your own!

Here’s a simple recipe that can be adapted depending on your skin type.

Ingredients

Your base (makes 6 ounces/180ml):

  • ½ cup of rose water or hibiscus water(*see note below)– anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, good for sensitive skin 
  • ¼ cup of alcohol-free witch hazel – anti-inflammatory and astringent
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar – (optional) antibacterial, pH balancing and anti-acne

*Note: In Mexico, dried hibiscus flowers (“flor de jamaica,” in Spanish) are affordable. If you find them in a Latin-American market, boil 1 cup of flowers in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes and drain it. This infusion is a great base for a toner due to its anti-aging and detoxifying properties.

DIY Facial Toner with Essential Oils

Essential oils:

  • 4 drops of lavender essential oil - antioxidant and anti-inflmmatory, helpful for hyperpigmentation and acne
  • 4 drops of frankincense essential oil - astrigent, promotes skin elasticity
  •  4 drops of rosehip oil - nutrient dense, helps improve skin texture and tone
  • 4 drops of tea tree oil (optional.) beneficial if your skin is oily or acne-prone.

Instructions

Add all the ingredients to a glass spritz bottle and mix well.

Spray on your face after cleansing and exfoliating, but before applying a serum or moisturizer.
