DIY Peppermint-Rose Toner

It doesn’t happen very often, but I have a DIY project that even the laziest of the lazy (i.e. moi) can do. I had a bouquet of roses from my birthday that was ready to bite the dust, so I did a little “pinvestigating” and found a way to make my own rose toner. I decided to add some peppermint oil to it and voila, peppermint-rose toner.

Here’s how it’s done:

1. Take fresh petals from roses and place in a saucepan. Cover with water and heat until the water turns color, roughly three minutes.

2. Place in a spray bottle (or container of your choosing) and add a few drops of peppermint oil. (I was generous and added about 10 drops.)

3. Spray on face as needed. I, for one use it as a substitute for a glass of wine when it is way to early to proclaim it as five o’clock somewhere in the world.
