Toner for Acne-Prone Skin (Formula #1)

I find that this toner helps promote natural healing and reduces inflammation of my daughter's acne-prone skin.  My teenager has seen positive results and enjoys the wonderful aroma from the essential oils. This is called "Formula #1" since I am always tinkering around with and tweaking my formulas. I like the essential oil blend in this toner as they are all good for acne and are anti-inflammatory and very soothing with healing promoting qualities.   I will post "Formula #2" as soon as I formulate it.  Green Blessings!!!
