It was a super slow DIY weekend, I maybe watched a little too much Olympic coverage and, John was sick, so I will have to update you all with some great furniture and jewelry how-tos next week, but in the mean time, here's a recipe for facial toner that I live by. I used to just use witch hazel because it gently cleanses pores and helps remove the last traces of dirt, oil, and makeup. It always left my skin feeling soft, moisturized and refreshed. But, recently I started adding rosemary because it stimulates circulation to skin, and helps clear and revitalize congested or sluggish skin. The rose petals just make it smell great!


3 1/2 cups witch hazel
1/2 cup dried rose petals
5 sprigs of fresh rosemary


Mix ingredients together making sure it is all blended well. Strain. Splash, or dab with cotton ball on your face after cleaning skin. Make sure to store in an airtight container.
