Refresh your skin with this natural, homemade spray. Great for after a workout, or a hot day in the sun!
A while back, my dear friend shared a product with me that she had been using recently after her workouts. She is an inspiring person who boldly declares that just because you are in your 50s, there’s no reason you can’t get and be fit and fabulous.
I met her for coffee one day and she was there sans make-up. Her skin looked so healthy and radiant. Through the course of our conversation, she mentioned a refresher spray that she had started using after her workouts to nourish and re-energize her skin. I did a little reading on it and determined that I might just be able to come up with a recipe for this very spray. Making things yourself is often much more economical in the long run that purchasing them pre-made over and over again.
I went home, did a little experimenting and came up with a recipe. I gave her a bottle and asked her to give it a try and see what she thought.
She loved it!
So I thought I would share that recipe here with you.
What You’ll Need:
- Small Spray Bottle
- 60 ml pure water (distilled or filtered)
- 30 ml witch hazel
- 1/2 tsp isopropyl alcohol
- 7 drops tea tree oil (I mostly get my oils HERE.)
- 18 drops wild orange oil
- 10 drops lavender oil
Combine all of the ingredients in a small spray bottle. Shake well.
To use, give the bottle a shake, and then mist it all over your skin. This is designed for your face, however feel free to use it as you wish.
I think this would be a great spray to have handy after working out in the sun on a hot summer day, not just after a trip to the gym. You can use it after your workout, or as a midday refreshing spray, or as a daily toner. There’s no nasty chemicals or bad stuff in it either.
A Note About Essential Oils
I personally get the vast majority of my essential oils from doTERRA. I feel that they are the best on the market and I never doubt their purity and quality.
That said, you should purchase the highest quality essential oils that you can afford.
Always read the bottle to make sure it is an essential oil for personal use and not simply a fragrance. Oils for fragrance purposes are often laden with chemicals and are not safe to use for health purposes.
I have had good results using the “NOW” brand of oils in the past, and still have several of them in my oil arsenal. I can get those locally at a natural health & wellness store, as well as online through Amazon.
