In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make a DIY green tea face toner.

This DIY face toner has vitamin C powder, lavender essential oil, and green tea—three ingredients you can get just about anywhere.

This toner is really cool and super easy to make, so let’s jump right into it.

Tools and materials:

  • Vitamin C powder
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Green tea
  • Bowl
  • Jar/bottle
  • Cotton pads
Steeping green tea

1. Steep green tea

Use a regular green tea bag and let it steep for 5 minutes in ½ cup of hot water.

When it’s done, put it in the refrigerator to fully cool it down since you don’t want to put any hot liquids on your face.

Adding lavender essential oil

2. Add lavender essential oil

Add 5 drops of lavender essential oil to the green tea. Don’t add too much, because it’s a very strong scent.

Adding vitamin C powder

3. Add vitamin C powder

Add half of a teaspoon of vitamin C powder to the tea. If you have vitamin C pills, you can also crush them up to turn them into a powder.

Mixing ingredients

4. Mix

Mix the ingredients together really well, so the powder completely dissolves.  

Adding toner to bottle

5. Pour the toner into a jar or bottle

Once the powder is completely dissolved, pour the toner into a jar.

If you have a spray bottle, that will work best because then you can spray it directly to your face.

If you have a jar like this, you can put it on a cotton swab and swipe it on your face or apply it with your fingers.

Benefits of vitamin C and green tea

Vitamin C and green tea are both anti-inflammatory. Vitamin C boosts collagen and has anti-aging effects.

Green tea helps combat oily skin and reduces acne and blackheads.

There are a lot of benefits to this toner, and it’s so inexpensive to make.

When making fresh toner at home, there is an expiration date so don’t keep them after 2-3 months depending on the formula.
