Natural rosewater toners are simpler than you think but they're ability to heal the skin is amazing. Here's the recipe I use to create mine each Spring.
2 cups organic rose water
1/2 cup witch hazel
1 capsule of vitamin E or 1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil
A pinch sea salt (optional)
5 drops natural vegetable glycerin (optional)
3 drops Rose essential oil
Combine all of the above ingredients and swirl to combine. Decant into a clean glass or plastic spray bottle. Keep refrigerated. This will last up to two weeks.To use apply to your face with a cotton ball after cleansing your face and neck. In the winter especially this is so very soothing to the skin.

IN A MICROWAVE OR OVER THE STOVE IN A SMALL SAUCE PAN, COMBINE THE WITCH HAZEL, 1/2 CUP OF WATER AND YOUR ROSE PETALS (AND ROSE HIPS IF YOU HAVE THEM). BRING TO A SIMMER AND TURN HEAT OFF. COVER AND LET STEEP FOR 4 TO 5 HOURS AND THEN STRAIN OFF PLANT MATERIAL. ALTERNATELY, SEE THE VIDEO TECHNIQUE FOR MAKING FLORAL WATER ABOVE. ONCE COOLED YOU CAN THEN ADD ANY OF THE OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS.
