Hello Girlies,

Thought of sharing with you a DIY project.

Here’s a simple yet very refreshing Rose Facial Mist which keeps your skin refresh & hydrated. Just spray it on your face and voila..you will feel refreshed !! All you gotta do is make it, store and spray it … So lets’ get started :

Ingredients:

  • Rose petals : Fresh rose petals are an important ingredient in many skin products. Balances, purifies and tones the skin, gives a cooling sensation to the skin. It also helps to maintain moisture balance of facial skin and  it smells heavenly.
  • Glycerin: prevents dryness of skin.
  • Mint Leaves: Helps to deal with skin irritation and acts as a coolant.
  • Eucalyptus oil : has anti-bacterial properties.
  • Spray Bottle / Spritzer– to store the facial mist
  • Water

Method:

Before getting started, kindly note the ratio of the ingredients . You can increase/ decrease the ingredients in the similar ratio :

1 cup water + 2 Roses + 5-6 mint leaves + half teaspoon glycerin + 1 drop of eucalyptus oil 

  1. Boil water and pour it in a container.
  2. Add Rose petals and Mint leaves to this hot water and cover it with lid and let it sit for about 30 mins.4_mix-boiled-water
  3. After 30 mins, strain out the water to remove the rose petals and mint leaves. You would get a concoction of slightly pinkish shade  .  This would be the base of our facial mist.
