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)!


Ingredients:
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!

Variations:
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:

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