Make it: Complexion Clearing and Refreshing Facial Mist

IMG_4393copy IMG_4396copy

I love a good beauty DIY just as much as the next girl, so when I decided that this Oklahoman weather was just too much for me to bear and I needed a way to refresh my poor skin (sometimes on the hour, ick), I started to research exactly HOW.

This is what I came up with.  Now, I’m rather frugal (circumstantially, if I was a rich girl yadda yadda yadda) and if I can save a buck or two by doing it myself, you know I will.  This spray will invigorate and refresh your skin while keeping oiliness and blemishes at bay by packing in a bunch of antibiotics and anti-bacterial properties. Yes PLEASE:


1 clean (and preferably recycled) mist bottle
Green tea
Peel of 1 orange
Sweet almond oil
Oregano oil (other anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory options include tea tree and lavender, but oregano is my FAVE)

First, brew 1 cup of green tea – to make it easier, brew in a jug.  Add peel of orange, agitate and poke at peel a little to bruise and release oils and let steep for about 10 minutes.  After this time, fill bottle about 3/4 of the way, add about 1 tsp of sweat almond oil and 5 drops of oregano oil.  Top with remaining tea, shake and refrigerate.

Once cooled, shake and spray mist onto face and for a split second, pretend you’re sitting pool-side in Malta.  Oh yeah.

Keep refrigerated to prolong the life of your spray, keep it for up to 3 months.  You can also use the spray to give your makeup a pretty, dewy look.  Très chic!

For those of you with less of a desire to DIY, I would suggest to head on over to Mountain Rose Herbs – they have some great toning mists with all natural ingredients and a friendly price!
