Calendula is a very nice flower with particular healing properties: contains a large amounts of valuable substances, vitamin C, essential oils, tannins, malic acid and salicylic acid. Calendula is used in cosmetology to make decoctions, infusions and tinctures, facial masks. These delicate flowers contain active substances that help fight skin aging and prevent a negative skin problems. I grew Calendula flowers from organic seeds this summer in my bio-garden and now is the time to make a toner.
Today is very sunny day and I picked the flower tops when they were in full blossom. Put the flower tops in a glass jar and cover with boiling water. I put the jar into the own 70 C for 20 min. Once the infusion has cooled I strain the liquid into a fresh bowl and it is ready to be used.
This homemade toner is perfect for either using as a conventional toner after cleansing, or as a quick fix sprizer for a wonderful and refreshing skin boost.
Once this spray is made up it needs to be kept in the refrigerator and used within 1 month.
