As I mentioned earlier, I’m sharing some of my simple cosmetics with you this month. At the end of the day, when I wash up, I like to use a bit of homemade toner (with my favorite rose water!). It removes any lingering makeup, if I wore any that day, and feels great. (Then I apply the moisturizing oil.)
This mixture is full of nourishing ingredients for any type of skin.
Green Tea & Rose Facial Toner
Steep the tea for a few minutes, and then let cool. Pour all ingredients into a jar and shake or stir to combine.
I like to keep mine in a repurposed spray bottle. Or, you can just pour some onto a cosmetic cloth and dab some on your face. Mountain Rose Herbs also sells “finger mister” sprayers to turn a little jar into a spray bottle (in their miscellaneous container section).
If applying with a spray bottle, make sure not to get it in your eyes!
I haven’t had any problems with this spoiling, but make sure you store it in a cool place, or even refrigerate it, if that is a concern. Making sure to use distilled water helps prevent spoilage, along with the essential oil.
