Homemade Toner

This is my latest cosmetic creation – a toner of just 4 natural ingredients. I was inspired by a toner I saw in Kiehl’s a few months ago. Not to knock Kiehl’s, but it was very pricey and had a lot of questionable ingredients so I didn’t want to buy it.  I figured why not try to make my own version? So I did.. I decided that witch hazel (a great natural astringent) would be the base and then I added some dried burduck root (a blood purifier), chamomile flowers (calming & anti-inflammatory), and hibiscus flowers (high in Vitamin C & naturally provide the pink tint).

I gave my mom a sample of it recently and when she was starting to get low, she said she needed a replacement asap!  She had noticed such a difference in her skin since she started using it. I couldn’t be happier. I’m already thinking of some other blends that I’m going to try making, but for now I’m really loving this one.

Refreshing & Aromatic

For a great, all natural face and body spray, try one of Pangea Organics Facial Toners. These sprays are truly skin and mood enlivening with herbal and fruit mixtures like Italian Green Mandarin with Sweet Lime, Argentinian Tangerine and Thyme, or French Rosemary with Sweet Orange. I’m currently enjoying the Rosemary and Orange, which is great for dry skin, especially in the warm weather when you don’t want to use a lot of heavy moisturizer. I also love spraying this toner in my hair for added moisture, bounce, and fragrance.
