Wash your face with your regular facial cleanser and pat your face dry with a clean towel. Apply a small amount of liquid facial toner to a cotton ball or pad. Move the cotton ball or pad gently in small circles across your face, paying special attention to your chin, nose, cheeks and hairline. Avoid your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Repeat the process with a fresh cotton ball or pad until you no longer see dirt and debris on the cotton ball or pad. Wait at least one minute for the toner to dry on your face. If desired, apply your favorite moisturizer or serum.


Because this recipe calls for pure essential oils that can cause allergies or irritation if not used properly, always do a patch test before applying. Especially if you are not familiar with some of the ingredients.
