Since diving into essential oils I have been trying to find the best synergy of essential oils for my face toner. I love using witch hazel but thought that some different essential oils might be a beneficial addition. I wanted to create a balance between keeping the bacteria out of my pores but also not drying out my face. I think I found a pretty good combination.
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Small Mason Jar that cotton rounds fit into. I prefer to use Jelly Jars
- 16oz Mason Jar to mix the ingredients
- 4oz Witch Hazel – ( I prefer the Rose Petal Witch Hazel from Thayers)
- Cotton Rounds
- 1/2 Tsp Vitamin E
- 3 Drops – Tea Tree Essential Oil
- 3 Drops – Elemi Essential Oil
- 3 Drops – Geranium Essential Oil
Why These Ingredients & Essential Oils?
- Witch Hazel – Witch Hazel is a natural astringent that can help minimize pores, reduce inflammation, decrease oil and leaves skin feeling clean.
- Vitamin E – Can help reduce wrinkles and brown spots
- Elemi Essential Oil – This oil is often called the poor man’s Frankincense. This oil helps to pull out much more bacteria and make-up even after washing my face.
- Geranium Essential Oil – Promotes healthy clear, glowing skin
- Tea Tree Essential Oil – This oil has fantastic anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties
- First, in the 16oz mason jar mix your 4oz of Witch Hazel, Vitamin E, and drops of essential oil.
- Next, place the lid on the mason jar and shake it up. Make sure to shake this up really good so the oils are dispersed evenly in the mixture.
- Then, place your cotton rounds into the smaller mason jar.
- Now, pour some of your witch hazel mixture over the top of the cotton rounds.
- Then, use your fingers to push down the cotton pads to help evenly distribute the mixture.
- Keeping using this pattern until you feel that the cotton rounds have absorbed the mixture and seal up the mason jar until you are ready to use.
- Finally, if you still have extra of the witch hazel mixture but sure to put the lid back on the mason jar and save for later.
