Homemade Calendula Skin Toner
Calendula, or Pot Marigold, is not only beautiful and easy to grow, it can also be used as an herbal remedy. Calendula is said to improve skin hydration and firmness and prevent inflammation, making it a perfect ingredient for a skin toner. Skin toners can be expensive and contain unwanted ingredients. Making your own will likely save you money and keep unwanted chemicals off your skin.
What You’ll Need:
- 6 oz distilled water
- ¼ cup dried or ¾ cup fresh calendula flowers
- 1 tablespoon organic aloe vera juice
First, bring the distilled water to a boil. Remove from heat and add calendula flowers. Steep for 20 to 25 minutes before draining.
Next, allow water to cool then add the aloe juice. Shake it up a bit.
This mild toner can be used with all skin types. Store it in a glass bottle, shake before use, and apply with a cotton ball.
