Facial Toner Recipe


Most of us know that we should cleanse and moisturize our face every day, but many of us overlook the important step of toning.  Toning removes additional impurities from our skin after cleansing and it helps our skin maintain a normal pH level. Cleansing opens up our skin, toning closes it for a smooth appearance.  

It is super easy to make your own toner!  I keep mine in a spray bottle but any glass container will work.

Facial Toner Recipe
2 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ tsp Argan oil (Jojoba works too)
 3 drops of
Frankincense essential oil
 2 drops of
Lavender essential oil
 2 drops of
 Patchouli essential oil

Apple Cider Vinegar & Patchouli Hair Mask

Did you know that one of the main reasons we have bad hair days is due to unbalanced pH levels on our hair and scalp?


Our hair has a healthy pH level when it is between 4.5-5.5  Many of our hair care products have a pH level of 8.  This is much more alkaline than our scalp and strips the hair of its natural acid mantle. The acid mantle helps the tiny overlapping scales on the outer layer of the hair shaft to lie flat. When the pH levels on our hair and scalp are balanced our hair has a smooth appearance and our scalp is moisturized.


This Hair Mask will leave your hair silky and conditioned! Apple cider vinegar has a pH of 3.  When it is properly diluted it helps to balance the pH of your hair!  (Make sure you are using unpasteurized ACV from the mother.)

 

Hair Mask Recipe
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
4 Tbsp Water
3 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
 6 drops
Patchouli essential oil

Melt coconut oil and honey.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. Apply the mask to your hair and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse off the mask and shampoo & condition if desired. 

 

*Honey helps softens and condition hair to help it feel silky. Honey may also help strengthen hair follicles and calm the scalp.

*Coconut oil helps moisturize, hydrate, and condition the hair. It can help prevent breakage and control frizz.

*Patchouli essential oil balances moisture levels on the scalp.  

 

Raise your hand if a Hair Mask is part of your weekly routine!
