Another easy recipe... enjoy!

Pure Rose Water Toner

  • Weighing scale
  • 50 or 60 ml spray bottle (Beauty360)
  • 50ml of pure rose water. Don't get the ones that are usually sold in the mamak shops in plastic bottles as they are NOT pure and have synthetic fragrances added to them. This is why most have a strong and sickly sweet rose smell. Pure rose water has a more subtle aroma, and smells more 'natural'. You can get pure rose distillate from Beauty360, but it is very expensive. A good and much cheaper alternative is to try and get it from any Iranian or Arab shops that sell nuts and dates and such. There is one on the LG1 floor of IKANO.  Ask the shop keeper where it comes from, and how can you tell that it is pure.
  • 2ml vegetable glycerin (Beauty360, or some specialty baking shops)
  • 3 drops of Sweet Orange OR Grapefruit essential oil (Beauty360)
  • 3 drops of Lime OR Lemon OR Bergamot essential oil (Beauty360)
  1. Place the clean spray bottle on the weighing scale and pour into it 2 ml of glycerin.
  2. Add in the essential oils. You can use a wide variety of essentials here, as long as you do not exceed 10 drops in total, and the oils are safe to be used on the skin. Use a combination that has skin benefits that suit your skin type, and that smell great to you.
  3. Shake the bottle slightly so that the essential oils are diluted in the glycerin.
  4. Pour in 50ml of pure rose water. Screw on the spray head and shake the bottle until the glycerin is diluted in the rose water.
  5. Spray away!
  • Beauty360 website:
  • It's best to limit the quantity to 50ml per person in other to keep the toner fresh. Any excess rose water/distillate can be kept in the fridge for the next batch.
