And now for the DIY skin tonic:
This recipe is really easy! If your skin is feeling a little irritated or dried out by the weather, get your hands on a cucumber, 2 drops of orange blossom essential oil (also known as neroli) and 3 tablespoons of purified water.
- Remove the peel and seeds from the cucumber and blend it with the water. You want the mixture to become thick. Strain it into a glass container.
- Add the orange blossom essential oil drops to the blend and mix it well.
- Store the container in the fridge for a few days to keep it cool and in easy reach whenever you need freshening up.
- To use it, apply a few teaspoons of it to your face with the use of a cotton pad.
