apple cider vinegar
use store bought or see steps below to make at home
witch hazel solution
dried or fresh
lavender essential oil
Make Distilled Water (optional)
Fill a large pot (with a fitted lid) with water and place a large bowl inside the water. Make sure to use a bowl which can withstand high temperatures
Bowl should have high sides and a large mouth. The sides of the bowl should be high enough so that the boiling water does not enter the bowl.
Set the pan with bowl inside on high heat. Cover and bring to boil
As the water boils, it will evaporate and steam will stick to the bottom of the cover. As the steam cools, the water droplets will collect inside the bowl
Once all the water has evaporated, turn off the heat
Once the bowl has cooled down, remove it from the pan. Your distilled water is ready!
To make one 3/4 of distilled water, you will need 3-4 cups of water in the pan as some of the water will evaporate
Wash the lavender with tap water to completely remove dust and dirt. Wash it again in 1/4 cup distilled water.
After washing the lavender, soak the lavender in the remaining distilled water (1/2 cup) for 30 minutes.
Strain the water and throw away the lavender
Mix together the witch hazel, lavender water and essential oil
Store the toner in glass bottle with a spray nozzle
Spray on your face right after washing and drying your face and before applying moisturiser
To hasten the process of making distilled water, you can put ice cubes on top of the cover. The ice cubes will convert the steam clinging to the bottom of the pan cover into water droplets quickly.
