Super Easy Facial Toner

I am normally pretty basic when it comes to skincare but I have started to experiment with different DIY recipes along the way. My workplace decided to become a little toxic due to some new furniture and my skin wasn’t happy for a while so I experimented with upping my skincare routine.

I came across this beautiful skin toner recipe and have tweaked it a little. I use 100% pure dōTERRA essential oils. This is the secret ingredient, if it’s not 100% pure then ditch it. Non-pure essential oils use fillers and synthetic ingredients to fill the bottle and it’s not great for you skin. If you would like to get your hands on some beautiful, 100% pure essential oils from a beautifully sustainable and conscious company then click here.

Ingredients

1/2 tsp Vitamin E oil

5 drops Geranium EO

5 drops Frankincense EO

5 drops Cedarwood EO

Fill the bottle with Witch Hazel (reduces inflammation, decreases oil and redness, minimise appearance of pores)

(If you have the dōTERRA Home Essentials Kit you can use Lavender & Frankincense, then when you want to upgrade your oils to next level add Geranium and Cedarwood to your cart)

Method

Combine all ingredients in a 100- 120ml bottle and there you have it.

Nothing else, no nasties, no parabens, no toxic fragrances, just pure beautiful ingredients to put on your skin.
