Make your own Lavender Toner

This is a simple to make toner that is particularly suitable for young teenage skin.

To make this you will need:

Place all the ingredients in the jar.  Leave in a cool, dry, dark place for 2 weeks to give the mix time to infuse. Shake the jar well daily.

Strain the liquid and pour into a small glass bottle. 

Apply with a cotton ball or cleansing pad, avoiding the area around your eyes. Follow with moisturiser.

Store out of direct sunlight. Use within 6 months.


Notes on witch hazel: Witch hazel in its liquid form is a blend of an alcohol based witch hazel extract and water. It acts as a very gentle astringent, but is not suitable for very dry, sensitive or sunburnt skin.

    1. You may be able to get witch hazel from your local chemist or natural health shop. If not I get mine from Go Native www.gonative.co.nz

  2. Such a simple recipe, and I love the tip about what type of skin it is for. Making your own products can be so simple if you have the right help!
