How to make your own Camomile toner

The best complement to cleansing milk is toner and here you are a super easy recipe to make your own Camomile toner to use in combination with your homemade Coconut cleansing milk (see previous post here)!

150 ml Deionised water (or tap water) makes 50 ml toner
2 Camomile tea bags
3 drops or up to 1/2 tsp Cider Vinegar
1 drop Glycerin
small bottle  

Home made Camomile toner ingredients

How to make it:
Boil 150 ml of deionised water, which is limescale free and add 2 Camomile tea bags. Let the Camomile infuse for a few minutes or till the liquid has cooled down. Remove the Camomile tea bags and add 3 drops of Cider Vinegar if your skin is dry and sensitive or 1/2 tsp of Cider vinegar if your skin is combination.  Add 1 drop of Glycerin to make the toner moisturizing (if you add more then 1 drop you may end up with a sticky toner!).
Pour in a small bottle (I got mine from Boots) and it is ready!
Make a small amount at a time so that you will be able to finish it before it goes off!

You can also add 1/2 tsp of honey if your skin is dry or 1 drop Tea Tree if your skin is prone to breakouts.

Home made Camomile Toner

How to use it:
Pour a few drops on a cotton pad/ball and apply in outwards and upwards strokes over your face after cleansing, in order to remove the last traces of makeup and tone your skin.

How to store it:
Store in the fridge for about 3 days
