  • DIY Balancing Facial Toner with Essential Oils

    June 14, 2022 2 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.

    Witch Hazel Toner Ingredients

    Your toner base (makes 8 ounces/200ml):

    • 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
    • 2 tablespoons water

    *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 to use in DIY Face Toner

    Depending on the needs of your skin type, use a few drops of each preferred essential oil.

    • 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
    • 3 drops of tea tree oil - beneficial if your skin is oily or acne-prone.

    Do-It-Yourself Face Toner 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.
