Body & Soul: Chervil Mint Toner


| February/March 2007


The scent of fresh chervil or “sweet fern,” is believed to give one a feeling of well-being. It’s also an excellent herb for cleansing the skin, leaving it soft and supple. With fresh mint, this toner is naturally refreshing. Makes 8 ounces.

• 1/4 cup fresh chervil leaves
• 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
• 1 cup boiling water
• 1/4 cup rosewater

1. Place chervil and mint leaves in a bowl and pour boiling water over. Steep until completely cooled. Strain mixture and discard solids. Mix strained liquid with rosewater and pour into a clean bottle.

2. To use, apply to clean skin with a cotton ball or pad.
