Anti-Acne Apple Cider Toner

˝ oz organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
2 oz water
3 plain uncoated aspirin tablets

Mix the water and vinegar in a glass bottle with a plastic cap; drop in the aspirin, which are a source of anti-acne salicylic acid. Shake the bottle. Once the aspirin tablets dissolve, apply the toner to a cotton ball or pad and then to areas with acne, rough skin, or enlarged pores. Do not use on broken skin—it will sting!

Apple cider vinegar contains alpha hydroxyl-acids and, with the salicylic acid in aspirin, exfoliate problem skin naturally. Your complexion will brighten and soften with daily use after washing and prior to moisturizing. If the mixture is still too powerful for your skin, dilute with more water. Keeps in a refrigerator for a month.

Green Chai Toner
Ingredients:
3 organic green tea bags
5 drops organic tea tree oil
2 drops geranium oil
1 drop eucalyptus oil
1mg green tea extract
1mg Acai extract

Directions:

Steep the green tea stronger than you’d usually drink (for about ten minutes). Let the tea cool until it’s lukewarm. Keep the cup covered to preserve the steam that may carry beneficial volatile compounds of the tea.
Blend well. Remove the teabags and add all the oils and extracts.
Store this toner in the fridge for up to one month, but do not freeze.
