Do you ever just feel like there aren't enough hours in the day? That no matter what you do you, you can't get those items checked off of your to do list?

Well, let me tell you exactly how to accomplish all of your goals with 3 easy steps…

Lol, I'm JUST KIDDING!

I actually don't have the answers and have been feeling totally overwhelmed lately. My kids were on spring break for 2 weeks and I don't think I've recovered yet.

I struggle BIG TIME with organization and time management.

But anyway, I said all of that to say this:

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get a new recipe up for you. I have so many lovely beauty recipes, stacks of them actually, but haven't had the time to get any them posted lately.

But today, I am determined to share this DIY Face Toner Recipe that I've been using. It will leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth and it's so easy to make.

You're just going to mix everything together in a 1 oz glass bottle, like this one and voila, you have a fantastic face toner.

This simple DIY Face Toner harnesses the soothing, healing powers of witch hazel and rosewater PLUS an extra powerful blend of essential oils.

DIY Face Toner Ingredients

Rosewater

Rosewater is very calming to the skin. It can aid in healing and reduce redness while helping to hydrate the skin. It's astringent properties help clean the pores and tone the skin. Not to mention, it smells so good!

You can also make your own rose water as well. This is a great rose water tutorial walking you through that process!

Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is great for troubled skin. It helps balance the pH level of the skin while promoting healing. It removed excess oil from the skin without leaving your skin overly dry. It is also great for troubled skin and damaged skin.

**IMPORTANT: You must shake this toner well before applying to disperse the essential oils.

Let's get to the recipe!

Hello! Thanks for the DIY article. Do the essential oils mix well with Rose Water? They won't separate? I am planning to make a facial toner with the following:

- Rose Water - Carrot Seed Essential Oil - Frankincense Essential Oil - Myrrh Essential Oil - Lavender Essential Oil

Is this skin-care combination nice? Only my worry is that they might not be so mixed well in Rose water. Please advise me.

i luv DIYs too!

Thank you!

Hello Jerald! You will need to store your toner in a spray bottle and be sure to shake it well before use. This recipe doesn't contain a solubilizer to incorporate the oils so just be sure to shake it before each use. :)

Hi there, are the essential oils used in this already diluted or does the toner itself serve as dilution for them?

Hi Emily, they are not pre-diluted.

I ALWAYS have at least 2-3 spray bottles of my favorite DIY Rosewater and Orange blossom sprays going. They are refreshing, have lovely vey scents and awaken my spirits as well as adding some light moisture whenever needed. I also almost always add to mine a bit of Vitamin E oil as well as just a few drops of glycerin. I think the beauty of DIYs is we can taylor them to our exact love, needs and wants. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful DIYs, I have tried several, love each one and am looking forward to trying this as well.
