  1. Place 1 part pure vegetable glycerin into a spray bottle.
  2. Add distilled (not tap) water.
    • Add 4 parts water for oily skin.
    • Add 3 parts water for combination skin.

    • Add 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil (i.e., tea tree, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, etc).
    • Substitute 1 part rose water for 1 part distilled water if you have extreme redness in your skin.
    • Substitute 1 part witch hazel for 1 part distilled water if the mixture is too “sticky” for your taste.
  4. Shake vigorously until well mixed.
  5. USES: 
    • Set your makeup. 
    • Moisturize your skin. 
    • Refresh your face after an intense workout session (esp. if you use lavender or peppermint essential oils). 
    • Moisturize and add shine to your hair.
  6. Enjoy!

I use the recipe above for setting my makeup and as a skin refresher after an intense workout. For my daily hair moisturizer, I use 4 parts water to 1 part glycerin, add about a tablespoon of castor oil to the solution for additional hair health benefits, and complete the spritz with 10-15 drops of tea tree essential oil. This is my go-to DIY spritz.
