I love beauty do-it-yourself projects. I feel that beauty tonics and potions that you make yourself work a little better than products you purchase. Ever since I have been on the hunt for better, safer, all-natural beauty products, I have been falling back on making my own beauty products. The simple ways of DIY is what I am looking for in beauty products, because I control what I put in those bottles, and I can make it according to my own standards. Lately, I have been using witch hazel and a drop of tea tree oil on a cotton ball for toning my face, and I thought to just make my own toner with everything that I need mixed together. Using a drop of tea tree oil everyday for toning my face seems a little wasteful with these oils, so instead, I mixed up a batch of lavender and tea tree facial toner so I can use a little bit of everything that nourishes my skin at once. Here is how to make your own...
