Simple Beauty Recipe — Lemony Fresh Toner

Well, hello. You look a little tired today.

Oh, don’t worry. I don’t think anyone is too fond of “spring up” weekend.

(Neighbor Nancy hands you a bowl-sized mug of coffee)

Why don’t you join me in the kitchen? I have a little recipe that might just perk you up.

Lemony Toner

1/2 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup witch hazel

1 cup water

Optional: Sprig of Rosemary

Dump the ingredients into a pint sized canning jar, jam a lid on there and shake. If you choose to add the rosemary, it takes about a week to really boost scent.

Now, when you need a little refreshing or just feel a bit blah, put a little of our concoction on a cotton ball and dab it all over your face just like the expensive store toner.

Store it in the refrigerator. It feels especially lovely chilled.

You know, it makes a nice little homemade gift for a new mom, too. Put a little fabric under the band. Lovely.

Ah, now, doesn’t that feel better? You are looking brighter already.

Just leave the cup in the sink. Drop by anytime, the coffee pot is always on.
