Home made facial toners and astringents (also known as tonics)

Toners were traditionally necessary to use, to remove the oily residue of facial cleansers and contained alcohol to facilitate the removal of oily residue, yet were drying due to the alcohol. With modern chemistry, cleansers are very seldom oily or greasy, yet toners do have the effect of toning and refining the skin and need not contain alcohol, since there are no huge amounts of oily residue to remove.

On this page recipes for home made toners

Inclusion of certain ingredients, such as witch-hazel, into a toner mixture adds an astringent quality to it should it be required. Please keep in mind that some individuals find that witch-hazel is too drying for their skin. In that case, rather just use the toner with the rosewater.

Simple home made toners can easily be created and the skin can be wiped with a wetted cotton ball after cleansing.

Method of making home made facial toners

The toners are all made the same way. Place the rosewater base into a clean glass bottle and add the essential oil of choice. Close the bottle and shake the mixture vigorously to help disperse the oil. A dispersing agent is normally added in commercial mixtures, but since this is freshly home made we will exclude it.

Leave the mixture for at least 36 hours before shaking it again vigorously and then filtering it through a paper coffee filter to remove the larger amount of essential oil. Re-bottle the filtered toner and remember to shake it before use to ensure proper distribution of the mixture.
