Making a Facial Toner – Part 2

February 7, 2015

About a month ago I started a ‘tincture’ containing a bunch of herbs soaked in an apple cider vinegar while basking in the sun as much as possible and shaken once a day.  {Making your own Facial Toner – Part 1}

Now that a month has passed, it’s time to complete the making of this facial toner, so let’s get started!

Items You’ll Need:

Cheesecloth

Tall container

Rubber binder

Witch Hazel

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

Geranium Essential Oil

Dark tinted glass container for storage (1 year shelf life when stored in cool, dry location)

 

1. Affix rubber binder and folded cheese cloth over the tall container.  Then slowly pour contents from the tincture jar onto the ‘strainer’. You’ll probably end up straining in batches depending upon your container size.  No problem.  In fact, do this a few times to get the most out of the vinegar tincture.

If you end up with a few extra pieces in your strained vinegar mix, just grab a little strainer and strain liquid one last time before mixing.

 

 

2.  Next, you’ll mix equal parts vinegar (in this case 2 1/2 cups) from the tincture and witch hazel together.  Stir well.

3.  Then add just a few drops of Carrot seed essential oil and Geranium essential oil into the mix.  Stir well again.

 

4.  Grab a little funnel if you want and pour mix into separate glass bottles or containers.

Directions: When using after washing face, dabble onto cotton ball and wipe across entire face area.  This will help remove any excess dirt and oil missed, and help refresh and tighten skin too.

The wonderfulness about witch hazel is that it doesn’t have that drying affect like alcohol based toners do.  With all the benefits from the herbs to the apple cider vinegar & help from the essential oils, the benefits are endless!  I promise you this toner does wonders, without the drying effects that alcohol toners cause.  Your skin will feel amazingly refreshed, clean, and toned!
