2 teaspoons dried yarrow
1 tablespoon witch hazel

1. Pour boiled water over yarrow and let steep for at least 15 minutes. Let cool

2. Add witch hazel and pour mixture into a spray bottle. Spritz toner on skin, or pour a small amount onto a cotton ball and apply to skin. The toner will last for up to one month in the refrigerator.
