Moisturizing Spritz

Written by 

Glycerin in small amounts is a great way to retain moisture. But don't use too much!

You can double the proportions of oil & glycerine if you wish, but keep honey low. This mixture will last 2 weeks and a little bit longer if kept in a dark bottle and cool.


1/4 litre chamomile tea
1 tsp honey
2 to 3 tsp glycerine
2 to 3 tsp of your favorite carrier oil
3 to 6 drops essential oil (3 drops rosemary, as a preservative + 3 of lavender or just 6 rosemary oil)
