Tea Tree Facial Toner

For the past two years I have battled acne. I have tried everything my doctor recommended from Cetaphil cleansers to prescription pills. The recommendations didn’t work, gave me terrible side effects and bleached my skin. About two months ago, I got hooked on the essential oil craze. After reading blog success stories about natural toners I decided to order tea tree oil. I made my own toner using natures “miracle liquid” (Apple Cider Vinegar) and Tea Tree Oil. I have had incredible results after using this all natural face toner.

Recipe: 13152705_10153416511106090_429055029_n

  • 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3-4 drops Tea Tree Oil

Mix in glass jar and apply to face with cotton round 1-2 times a day.


Why does this work? 

  • The Apple cider vinegar facial is made from raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar balances the natural pH of the skin, clears away excess oils, and exfoliates to keep skin pores open. It also can lighten sun and age spots, and can improve acne and acne scars.
