This green tea toner is great for summer, because it’s uplifting, refreshing, and filled with antioxidants. It’s also insanely easy to make!
1 organic green tea bag
1 organic peppermint tea bag
1/2 cup aloe vera juice
Steep the green tea and peppermint tea bags each in 1/2 cup of boiling water for 10 minutes, and allow them to cool.
Pour 1/4 cup of each infusion into a liquid-measuring cup and add the aloe vera juice. Pour the mixture into a 2-ounce glass bottle, sterilized*. Use the toner each morning and evening after cleansing and exfoliating.
Keep refrigerated and use within one month.
*You can sterilize the bottle by putting it through a hot wash in your dishwasher or dunking in a pot of just-boiled water for a few seconds.
