Recipes:

Cucumber-Aloe Hydrating Mist

Ingredients

1 small cucumber
1/3 cup of distilled water
1 tsp. of aloe vera
1 tsp. witch hazel
4-ounce glass spray bottle

Directions
Peel and cut your cucumber (dice it or toss into a food processor). If using a processor, strain through a cheesecloth to extract the cucumber essence and to keep your mist light. I like to include some of the diced pieces in the mix either way. Pour into your spray bottle along with the water, aloe vera, witch hazel and shake it up! Mist as necessary!

Rose water cooling mist

1/2 cup of organic rose water
a few drops of vitamin E oil
3 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
4-ounce glass spray bottle

Directions
Combine water, vitamin E oil and ylang ylang oil in your glass bottle.

Green Tea Tree Face Mist

Ingredients

1/2 cup of steeped and cooled green tea
4 drops of tea tree essential oil
4-ounce glass spray bottle

Directions
Steep the green tea bag in a 1/2 cup of boiled water. Remove bag after five minutes and let the tea cool down before pouring into bottle. Put the tea tree oil in the bottle as well, screw on the top and shake it up.

Lavender Antibacterial Mist

1/2 cup of distilled water
4 drops of lavender essential oil
