DIY Floral Facial Toner

I love the refreshing feel of this DIY Floral Facial Toner! That little burst of cooling aromatherapy sets my morning and evening into ritualistic action. I know there's a lot of controversy over toner, whether it's necessary, what it's actual benefits are, but I still don't go a morning or evening without it. I love the soft dewy feel of my skin and swear my pores are tighter.

This is my go-to toner recipe. It's delicate and moisturizing and smells oh, so delectable.

Here's what you'll need:

1⁄2 part Rosewater

1⁄2 part Witch Hazel

5  Drops Lavender Essential Oil


Here's what you do:

Combine the rosewater and witch hazel into a (preferably glass) spray pump container. I eyeball my measurements based on the container I'm using.
