Recipe of the Week

This homemade facial toner, from Mountain Rose Herbs, is suitable for all skin types. The vegetable glycerin acts as a humectant, attracting moisture to the skin; witch hazel extract and rose flower water are gently cleansing and toning; and the aloe vera, chamomile, and lavender are soothing and calming. If this recipe feels a little sticky to you, decrease the amount of vegetable glycerin. If it feels a little dry, increase the vegetable glycerin or add a dash of olive or jojoba oil.
