Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Winter weather and indoor heating can make my skin dry. One trick I use to keep my skin feeling fresh and dewy all day is my DIY skin mister. Click on the video player for a quick tutorial.
I purchased one of these, once, a while back to use for airplane travel. As I remember, it cost me about $15 to $20 for the 2 oz bottle but I did enjoy using it and it was as invaluable to me as my lip gloss was! So when my bottle ran out, I was planning to get another and checking out the label found out I could probably easily make one for myself, so here is my recipe for just that!
I was able to purchase an empty spray bottle at a local health food store. I also purchased my rose water and essential oils there! With what I spent on supplies, I would say the cost came to about $3 to make my own 2oz mister! I made some for my girl friends as well, they make great gifts.
DIY Skin Mister How To:
STEP 1: Fill your 2 oz bottle almost full with rose water OR distilled water also works fine. I use rose water because it also tones and moisturizes the skin and is good for all skin types.
STEP 2: Now add 5-10 drops of any of the following essential oils per 1 oz of water (mine has lavender and lemon). Be sure to shake your bottle well and also shake before each use.
Combos to Try:
4 ENERGY: Try a combination of 1 drop eucalyptus, 2 drops geranium, and 3 drops peppermint essential oils.
4 CALMING: Try 2 drops bergamot, 1 drop frankincense, and 3 drops lavender essential oils.
About the Oils:
LAVENDER- Calms, relaxes, and balances emotions and is soothing to the skin. Also try misting your pillow with this for a good night's sleep.
LEMON- Lemon oil is astringent and detoxifying and is therefore great for blemishes associated with oily skin. Lemon oil also has rejuvenating properties and will brighten dull skin. Please note, avoid lemon for sensitive skin.
THYME- A strong anti-bacterial herb, thyme is effective as a skin wash for acne or infected eczema. Use alone or in equal parts with chamomile and/or calendula to soothe and heal.
