Green Tea & Rose Facial Toner
a Mountain Rose Herbs recipe
Toners help adjust pH levels, remove any residues left on the skin after cleansing, tone and tighten pores, and moisturize. This toner is gentle, soothing, and beneficial for all skin types. Note: You can substitute Petitgrain essential oil for the rose or rose geranium EO.
4 oz organic Witch Hazel Extract
2 oz organic Rose Hydrosol
1 TBSP Aloe Vera Gel
1 tsp organic Green Sencha Leaf Tea
1/2 tsp organic Vegetable Glycerine
2-5 drops Rose or organic Geranium (Rose) Essential Oil
First, make an herbal infused Witch Hazel Extract by placing the Green Sencha Tea leaves and Witch Hazel Extract in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake the jar daily and allow the mixture to infuse for 2 or more weeks. Once finished infusing, strain the Green Tea leaves out and reserve the remaining liquid. Mix the infused Witch Hazel Extract with all of the other ingredients, and pour into dark glass bottles.
