Summer Rose Face Mist, Anyone?

An Easy Summer Rose Face Mist with Kore Herbals

Picture this: it’s a sunny day with a cool breeze, birds are chirping in the distance, roses are fragrantly blooming, and life. is. good.

May we recommend distilling and bottling that feeling into a perennial face mist? Portland’s Kore Herbals showed us how, and let us tell you, a little spritz turns a bad day good, and a good day better. Best of all, this DIY is e-z p-z!

Ingredients + Supplies

1 tbsp (or so) freshly picked rose petals

1 cup purified or distilled water

Strainer, funnel, and small glass misting bottle

Optional: witch hazel, rose oil, lavender or bergamot essential oils

〰〰〰

Step 1

Bring water to a boil.

Step 2

Once boiling, remove from heat and add rose petals.

Step 3

Cover and let roses infuse for 1-2 minutes.

Step 4

Strain liquid, then funnel into a misting bottle.

Step 5

Pop into fridge, and mist away!

Optional: Add a Scent

Add up to 5 drops of lavender or bergamot essential oil for a lovely uplifting scent.

Optional: Make it into a Toner

Add one part witch hazel and one part rose oil.
