Astringents and toners are water based agents used to remove cleanser residue and to restore PH balance and hydrate the skin. Most commercial toners have alcohol or acetone which are drying and damaging to the skin. Herbal toners are very gentle and very easy to make.
We will be using a lot of essential oils in our skincare my favorite ones to use are from Plant Therapy. I have been using essential oils now for about 30 years and I have tried many different brands over the years. When it comes to oils there is a huge difference in quality, you want to make sure that you get 100% pure. I have tried Doterra, young living etc.. both of those are good brands, however Plant Therapy is just as good and at a fraction of the price! Now there are times that I want a certain oil that Plant therapy does not carry and in that instance I usually go with Doterra or YL but I always check Plant Therapy first because of the affordability - I use tons of oils and I simply could not afford to use the amount I do if it wasn't for Plant Therapy.
