Why DIY Facial Toner

  1. Avoiding dangerous ingredients is at the top of the list again: some the usual suspects are parabens, synthetic colors, and drying alcohols.
  2. Facial Toner may be an important part of your skin care routine.  There seems to be debate but even dermatologists who think toner is not necessary will often say that toner tends to benefit those with oily or blemished skin.
  3. Again, it’s so affordable, and with therapeutic grade essential oils, you know you get the best products for your skin and body and none of the worry.

Essential Oil Recommendations for your Facial Toner:

Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favorite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse many areas of your life.

Frankincense is fabulous the benefits include maintaining radiant skin.

Myrrh is magnificent for it’s moisturizing and cleansing properties, and has been used in high-end cosmetics for years.

Sandalwood can also help you recapture the qualities of younger-looking skin and enhance your favorite skin and hair products.

Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) Incorporate this moisturizing yet cleansing oil into skin care applications.

Melrose™ is a blend of essential oils with powerful cleansing properties that supports the appearance of skin.


You will need to make your DIY Facial Toner:

1 T aloe vera gel

1 T alcohol-free witch hazel

1 oz cooled organic green tea (I have also used chamomile tea, I love it!)

20 drops of Essential Oil. (This time I did lavender, frankincense and sandalwood)

Spray bottle (I prefer to use glass, you could use a high quality plastic)

Stainless steel funnel


  1. Pour aloe into container.
  2. Add witch hazel
  3. Pour cooled green tea
  4. Add your essential oils
  5. Put cap on and shake well.

Voila!  You’re Done!

There you have it, you can adjust the measurements based on the size spray bottle you purchase.  I would suggest doing bottles 4 ounces or under.  Since these are basically food products, they are not indefinitely shelf-stable.  What I like to do is make a batch, keep most in a glass jar in the refrigerator and then keep the spray bottle in my bathroom closet, I just refill from the refrigerated batch as it gets low.
