Beauty Recipe: Lavender & Sea Salt Toner

IMG_1278

This is one of my absolute favorite toner recipes. It’s the magic potion that always seems to keep my complexion clear. Suitable for all skin types, this toner hydrates, soothes, refreshes and nourishes. The addition of sea salt really takes this recipe to the next level because it gently treats acne and clears the skin of blemishes.

Recipe:
3 oz Hydrosol or Distilled Water (I used Rose Hydrosol)
1 oz Witch Hazel
1 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel
1/2 tsp Glycerin
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
4 drops Green Tea Extract
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Combine the hydrosol, witch hazel, aloe, glycerin and sea salt in a glass pyrex or double boiler.

Place the glass pyrex in a pot of water and warm over the stove. Gently heat the ingredients until the sea salt dissolves.

Remove from heat and add the green tea extract and essential oils. Pour the recipe into a glass bottle with spray top.

I like to use two 2 oz brown glass bottles. I’ll keep one for myself and I’ll give one to a friend. This recipe will keep for 6 months without refrigeration. To use, simply spray the toner on a face, neck and chest after cleansing and before moisturizing.

Enjoy!
