Makes about 1 cup
Use this rejuvenating herbal toner after cleansing your skin to tighten pores.

  • ½ cup distilled witch hazel
  • ½ cup distilled rose water
  • 2 teaspoons dried rose petals
  • 2 teaspoons dried lavender
  • 1 teaspoon dried comfrey leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin (optional, for dry skin)
  1. In a pint glass jar, combine witch hazel and rose water with dried herbs. Cover with a lid and allow the mixture to steep for 2 weeks in a warm, dark place. Gently shake the jar every day to keep the herbs from settling.
