If you’re anything like me, you are always looking for ways to hydrate and soften your skin during the cold winter months. I recently discovered Herbivore’s Rose Hydrating Face Mist (I know, way I’m late to the game). I decided to try a DIY version of the face mist at home using rose and geranium essential oils. I have to say I am pretty impressed with how they turned out. I have been using them after I shower and before I go to bed and they always leave me feeling refreshed, hydrated, and relaxed. Click through to get the tutorial… these also make awesome “galentine” gifts!
Here’s what you will need for each:
– clear glass apothecary bottle
– distilled water
– rose water
– witch hazel
– coconut water
– rose absolute essential oil
– geranium essential oil
– rose absolute labels (printable)
– geranium labels (printable)
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I love the idea of making a few of these as gifts for your closest girlfriends. Who doesn’t love getting a surprise package in the mail from one of your bests?
Geranium Face Mist // Using a funnel, fill the bottle 1/3 of the way full with distilled water. Add 4 tablespoons of both rose water and witch hazel. Continue with 2 tablespoons of coconut water. Add 3 drops of geranium oil. Shake, add label and enjoy!
Rose Absolute Face Mist //Using a funnel, fill the bottle 1/3 of the way full with distilled water. Add 4 tablespoons of both rose water and witch hazel. Continue with 2 tablespoons of coconut water. Add 3 drops of rose absolute oil. Shake, add label and enjoy!
We’re also fans of the Tatcha face mist, as well as the Amore Pacific (if you’re not into DIY projects)… but I have to say, this version leaves your skin just as dewy, luminous, and hydrated as the popular brands. Don’t forget to download the pretty labels Sarah designed above! Let us know what you think! One last thing… if you’re into these, check out our friend Joanna’s deep sleep pillow spray with essential oils. You might love that too!
Special thanks to ProFlowers for the lovely seasonal bouquet! You can find them here.

Is the coconut water just the kind you can drink? Or is there a less processed alternative that should be used here? (What did you use specifically?)

Hey there, are the printable labels no longer available?

Hi Lori! I’m sorry- Dropbox changed their policy and deleted all of our “public” links. I’ll work on getting those back up! Thanks for letting me know. xo
