Rose Toner

The scent of fresh roses is beyond doubt, one of my favourite aromas. It's richness soothes, comforts and offers beneficial qualities. This is an age old beauty treat to refresh your body and mind at the same.

Make your own rose water by boiling fresh rose petals in a stove-top distil.

Add in rose essence or essential oils if you want a more potent brew.

Since I am making a toner, I add in witchhazel a popular natural astringent.

Glycerin for moisture.

Give it a good stir and it's ready for use. This batch will keep until Dec 2011.
