Today for Therapy Thursday I am sharing a Herb Infused Grapefruit Face Toner by BLDG 25.
First, get yourself a fresh, organic grapefruit or two, and squeeze it into a jar. If you’re following the dry skin recipe, add a tablespoon or two of mineral water to dilute the grapefruit juice — this way it won’t be as harsh on your skin.
Next, add the herbs/oils.
For dry skin, add a mixture of lavender, chamomile, and sage to the jar. These can be done in herb or essential oil form.
For oily/combination skin, use lavender (ideal for all skin types), mint, rosemary, and thyme. Again, these can be herbs or essential oils.
Seal your jar with an airtight lid and allow the herbs to infuse for 2-4 hours. Then, strain the liquid into another seal-able jar, discarding the herbs. If you choose to use essential oils instead of herbs, you can skip this step entirely — your toner is already ready to be used!
To use, pour a little of the toner onto a cotton ball and apply to clean skin. You’ll be left feeling totally refreshed and ready for the day!
Store your toner in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for about 1-2 weeks. :)
