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. Wow! This is so awesome I want to make it! Where would you recommend purchasing Witch Hazel?

    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

  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!
