Facial Toner & Astringent Blend

After washing your face with a cleanser, it is important to follow up with a skin toner and/or astringent to ensure complete removal of all soaps. Not only that, the toner will penetrate pores clearing away excess oil, impurities and dead skin cells that the cleanser leaves behind. Toners restore the acid or alkali balance of the skin, refreshing and cooling your skin. Based on your skin type, make a toner or astringent using essential oils that will nourish your skin.

What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup Hydrosol or Floral Water

  • 5-10 drops Essential Oils (your choice)

  • Bottle


What To Do:

  1. Choose essential oils that match your skin type.

  2. Choose the hydrosol or floral water you want to use for your blend. For oily/acne prone skin use Witch Hazel; for dry/sensitive skin try Rosewater; for normal skin you may want to use Rose Geranium floral water, etc.

  3. Add all of the ingredients into a bottle and shake well.

  4. Wait 24 hours to allow the mixture to cure.

  5. To use, apply toner using a cotton ball or pad and apply gently to the skin. Don’t forget to moisturize afterwards.



Facial Toner & Astringent Tips

  • Before applying a toner, clean your face and neck with water and a facial cleanser. Pat your skin with a clean dry towel. For even greater benefits, take a hot shower or a steam bath to open up your pores.

  • Choose a toner that fits your skin type. For example, Roman Chamomile and Rose essential oils are suitable for dry skin while Lemongrass or Juniper essential oils are better for oily skin.

  • Essential oils have a tendency to separate. To combat this, simply shake the bottle before each use to ensure that the oils sufficiently blend.

  • Toning the skin is not an adequate substitute for cleansing. Resist the temptation to simply apply toner whenever your skin looks or feels greasy.

  • The cotton ball or pad should appear somewhat clean after toning. If it looks dirty, re-wash the skin and follow-up with toner.

  • Do not rinse your face after applying the toner.

  • Always test a small patch of skin prior to first use. If any irritation or discomfort occurs, discontinue use.
