Hello everyone and hello Summer! I really hope everyone is having an amazing June so far. Things have been a bit crazy here with some travel and moving this month. It’s been a minute since we’ve posted but I promise we are back and ready to deliver some really awesome content from here on out! I’d also like to thank everyone for hanging around and keeping up with our Instagram @thatmidnightoil in the meantime. We are thinking of doing a series on Essential Oils for the Skin and this is our first post in the series.

So today I am coming to you guys with an awesome DIY Facial Toner! It was really simple to make and I chose the oils based on wanting to combat oily skin for these hot and muggy summer months. I already have oily combination skin so when the weather is muggy and constantly warm, I need a little more help taking care of my skin. So if you’re someone with skin similar to mine or just want to control oily skin for the summer this could be the toner for you!  In a 10 ML spray bottle I put 10 drops doTERRA Geranium Essential Oil, 12 drops doTERRA Cypress Essential Oil, and last but not least 5 drops doTERRA Juniper Berry Essential Oil.  After that I filled the bottle to the halfway point with Witch Hazel, and then the rest of the way with pure Rosewater. Put the top on and give it a good shake! Now if you wanted to make this in a bigger bottle just adjust the measurements accordingly.  You could also swap an oil for one of your choice as well. Please don’t feel limited, but just know that the doTERRA Cypress Essential Oil was the main one I chose to help with the excess oil on my skin so I’d keep that one in there for sure!  I chose doTERRA Geranium EO for its anti-aging properties, and doTERRA Juniper Berry EO based on its ability to be a natural skin toner.
I do recommend shaking before each use–just a few sprays goes a long way! I personally use this morning and night after washing and before moisturizing, but feel free to use in the middle of the day as well!
I hope you all try this at home, and please leave comments on your thoughts!
