Happy Friday Eve! How are you doing today? How was your Halloween? We had a good one over here. I am glad I was able to write yesterday’s post in advance because it was a whirlwind of activity from the time I got off work until bed. I picked up the kids and we enjoyed a pizza dinner with my mom before heading out trick or treating (thanks mom for passing out candy to our trick or treaters while we were out). We just did one street with the babies (that was plenty for them), then brought them home, tucked them in and spent the rest of the night passing out candy.
Wednesday was a pretty normal day, except for the sugar hangover I had from all the Halloween candy, I definitely overindulged a little.
Today I wanted to share something a little different. As I have gotten older, I have become more and more conscious of what is in the products I use, particularly skin care products. I have made a few varieties of toners, body scrubs and chapsticks from all natural ingredients, and have really loved the results. Recently, I have been getting a bit of acne and my skin has been feeling a little dry. So I whipped up this tea tree toner to spritz or wipe over my face. It has been so nice and refreshing, and I love that I know exactly what is in it. It is also super easy to make!
Tea Tree Toner
- 1 spray bottle (mine was 5oz)
- 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
- 2-3 drops Vitamin E Oil (optional)
- 8-10 drops Tea Tree Oil
- Distilled water
Fill a spray bottle about 3/4 full of water. Add vegetable glycerin, tea tree oil and Vitamin E oil (if using). Shake well before using. Can be used to lightly mist the face, or spray on a cotton ball and wipe over the face.
Why Tea Tree Oil (Source: Mayoclinic.org), Tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial that can be useful in treating acne.
Why vegetable glycerin (Source: Healthyfocus.org) It helps to moisturize the skin and draw oxygen in, which can contribute to younger looking skin.
Let me know if you give it a try. Do you make any of your own skin care products? What are your go-to skincare brands/products?
Hope you have a great day!
