DIY cooling tea tree toner

for years, i religiously purchased & repurchased tea tree water, that toning spray from lush just about everyone seems to enjoy. it was my favorite way to refresh on hot & muggy summer days.
i'm just not with spending money on things like that anymore, especially when i can easily replicate quite a few of the products i used to buy. but live without, it i'd rather not.
here is a super quick, simple way to create a similar toner to tea tree water, for a fraction of the price. i have linked the exact products i use below for reference. i found them all at my local whole foods.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
2 oz. alcohol-free witch hazel - here
~15 drops organic tea tree essential oil - here
~10 drops cold-pressed organic rosehip seed oil - here
2 oz.-size empty spray bottle - here

METHOD
unscrew the spray nozzle from your bottle.
pour in the witch hazel until you reach the bottom of the bottle's neck.
add in your oils. shake well to incorporate.
always shake before using as the oils will separate from the witch hazel. 

BENEFITS
witch hazel is one of my favorite natural skincare ingredients, full of antioxidants & astringent properties that help fight acne & calm down oiliness. tea tree oil, a natural anti-microbial, supremely helps many people with acne including myself. i often dot it on pimples to dry them out & prevent any bacteria from spreading, & it definitely works. because it can be drying, i incorporated cold-pressed rosehip seed oil to add lightweight moisture for the skin while helping prevent signs of ageing, as well as healing acne & scars.

all in all, this toner helps prevent & treat acne & cut down the oiliness in your skin, a must as summer approaches, without drying out your complexion. it has a fresh herbal scent & will leave a lingering cool feeling on your skin. i spent a little under $30 to get all the supplies i needed & got around 5-6 bottles of spray this way - which would cost you around $50-60 at lush. best part of all is i know exactly what is going into it! no weird ingredients or fillers.

let me know if you try this out for yourself & how you liked it.

talk to you soon xx
