DIY Facial Toner Spray's Using Essential Oils*Making a DIY facial toner with essential oils can be a natural and effective way to nourish and care for your skin. The benefits of using a facial toner include:

  • Balancing pH: Facial toners help balance the pH of your skin, which is important for maintaining healthy skin function.*
