How to Make A Simple Tea Tree Oil Toner

Requested by Maira...

Tools:
  • 50ml clean spray bottle (360Beauty)
  • 48ml Rose water, or distilled water
  • 2ml glycerin (360Beauty)
  • 7 - 10 drops Tea Tree Oil (pharmacy or 360Beauty)
  • 2 - 4 drops of vitamin E oil (optional)
Directions:
  1. Add 2ml of glycerin into the spray bottle
  2. Add in vitamin E oil (if any) and Tea Tree essential oil. Shake bottle to combine the ingredients.
  3. Add in rose water or distilled water. Shake again....and you're done!
Note:
  • You can make this toner with just tea tree oil and distilled water. But you will need to shake the bottle each time before use to ensure that the essential oils are evenly distributed.
  • If you are only using these 2 ingredients, then I suggest making the toner in smaller batches. For example, using only 20ml of distilled water + 4 to 5 drops of Tea Tree oil at a time.
  • Glycerin is not only a great humectant (attracts moisture to the skin), but it also helps to evenly dissolve the essential oils with the rose water/ distilled water.
  • Vitamin E oil is not only a good skin moisturizer, but it is also a natural anti-oxidant, thus helping to keep the toner fresh for longer.
  • Keep your toner away from heat and direct sunlight!
