DIY Facial Toner Water | Zero Waste

Friday, 10 February 2017

I've been using my DIY facial wash since September and I definitely will not be going back to buying one. It works so well for my skin and I have also saved money and produced less waste in the process. It's been such a success that I thought why make my own toner?! 

It's been a struggle to find one that I really like and also contains very few ingredients. I used to really like the LUSH water toners, but unfortunately they contain parabens so that's a no go zone for me. However, looking at the ingredients they basically use water, essential oils and parabens in their toners, so take away the parabens and it's actually a very simple product to make. 

So for this DIY you will need:

Filtered water
Essential oils (I chose grapefruit, tea tree and lavender)
A glass spray bottle (preferably one you've reused and can continue to reuse) 

I filled my bottle up with water and then added 20 drops of tea tree, 10 drops of lavender and 10 drops of grapefruit. Don't forget to give it a good shake before using it!!

Grapefruit essential oil  - good for oily skin, it also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties so is great for acne or blemish prone skin. 

Tea tree - another great oil for fighting blemishes, it also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties and I swear by this stuff for getting rid of spots!

Lavender - can help calm irritated skin, is very soothing and a great oil for all skin types. Plus I am obsessed with anything lavender so of course this was going to be in my toner!! 

Let me know if you give this a try!!

  2. I have really oily and sensitive skin, so it's often difficult to find toners that aren't too harsh for my skin. This looks great so I might give it a try! I'm going to take a look at your DIY facial wash too!

  3. Love this article and can't wait to try this toner. Check out my recipe for a lavender facial steam:
