This Valentine's Day, don't forget to love you skin! This tonic combines rose quartz, the stone for unconditional love, with a variety of other skin-loving ingredients. It works wonders on dull, dry skin, so mix up a batch after a long flight or on says you spend too much time indoors. Both rose and gold have been used to treat skin since ancient times, and with good reason. Rose hydrates and soothes, while gold colloidal is known for its regenerative and energizing properties. During the summer months, you can store the tonic in the refrigerator and use it as a cooling, energizing body mist.
Skin Type: Dry and/or sensitive; use daily or as needed
Purpose: Leaves the skin feeling soft and protected
- 1/2 cup rose quartz water elixir
- 1/4 teaspoon gold colloidal
- 1/2 tablespoon pure organic aloe vera gel or juice
- Pinch of Himalayan salt (preferred) or sea salt
- 1-3 drops rose, geranium, and/or ylang-ylang essential oil
In a small glass or ceramic bowl, combine the rose quartz water elixir with the gold colloidal, aloe vera gel or juice, and salt. Then add the essential oil. Place the mixture in an atomizer (preferred) or glass bottle.
Use this tonic after cleansing. If you have an atomizer, gently mist the tonic onto your skin. Alternatively, press the tonic onto the skin with your fingertips in gentle, fluttering motions.
