This is a rose-infused witch hazel mixture with healing aloe to exfoliate and hydrate. The combination of witch hazel and aloe is perfect for oily skin so you can use them as a toner after washing your face at night.
First, combine a cup of witch hazel with about 1/2 cup of dried roses in a jar with a lid. Let it sit for 1-2 weeks in a cool dry place. If you run out of patience before 2 weeks, no worries. The longer it sits, the stronger the infusion.
When you’re ready to make the face pads, strain out the rose pieces. The witch hazel turns a really pretty shade of red!
Add 1 part aloe to 3 parts witch hazel and stir together until combined. You can also add a couple of drops of essential oils for your skin type, if desired.
Stack your face pads in a jar and pour the mixture over them. Give it about an hour for the pads to soak up all of the liquid.
