Toners are great to follow up with after cleansing the skin. Some people think that they are an unnecessary step or indulgence, but they are actually quite beneficial. Not only do they reduce the appearance of pores; they also help to remove impurities and restore the skin back to its original pH. It is easy, however, to understand how they can feel like a luxury; some department store toners fall into the $75-$100 range. That’s crazy! Especially since it’s completely unnecessary to spend that kind of money. You can easily make a refreshing, elegant toner at home. And you can make one with completely natural, organic ingredients that you can pronounce. Try finding a $75 toner at the department store like that! So if you are looking to reap all of the benefits of a toner minus all of the chemical nasties, then keep reading. Because here are 15 amazing DIY, all-natural toners you must make at home.
But before we get to the list, here are some related posts that you might enjoy:
And now, fifteen amazing toner you gotta try:
DIY Tea Tree Toner
If you are looking for a toner that will remove bacteria from the skin and help prevent future breakouts, then make sure you try this toner. It couldn’t be simpler to make. Just please follow the directions carefully; raw apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil can be too harsh on the skin if not diluted with water.

Honey Chamomile Toner
Are you hoping to have the benefits of apple cider vinegar but are also looking for something a bit more soothing? Then, you’ll love this toner with chamomile.
From Mary Makes Good.
Vitamin C Toner
Vitamin C works to brighten the skin. So if you are wanting a more youthful looking complexion, then this toner is perfect. Just keep in mind that vitamin C has a photo-sensitizing effect, so you’ll want to make sure that you wear sunscreen during the day.
From Paula Deen.
Skin Clearing Facial Mist
This toner does it exactly what the name suggests- it helps to clear the skin of blemishes. Tea tree oil prevents future breakouts from occurring while pink Himalayan salt combats current acne.

Cucumber Refreshing Toner and Mist
There have been times in my life where my skin has been incredibly sensitive and felt almost “raw.” This usually happens when I’ve used a product I shouldn’t have, or I’ve just had a facial treatment done. And when that feeling occurs, I’m pretty afraid to put anything else on my face. But not this! The green tea is anti-inflammatory and the aloe vera gel is so soothing! This would also make a totally awesome after sun spray.

Hydrating Facial Mist
If you aren’t battling oily skin, but are combating dry skin instead, I feel you! I have had super dry skin my entire life, and it’s sooo uncomfortable. Good thing for this toner. The basic recipe will help make the skin feel more comfortable while the additional options for dry skin will help provide much-needed moisture.

DIY Toner Made with Rosewater
Rosewater is celebrated as being incredibly soothing and refreshing for the skin. But this recipe doesn’t just include it, it also talks you through how to make your own rosewater. Plus, if you do what Sarah did, this toner will be practically free!
From Say Yes.
Homemade Facial Toner
If you are looking for some essential oil goodness, then this is the toner for you. It has rosewater, witch hazel, and four different essential oils in it. The oils can also be adjusted to fit your taste. If I was making it for myself, I would take out the tea tree and lemon oils and use geranium and carrot seed instead. But remember, I have dry skin!
From The Merrythought.
Bonjour Spring! DIY Face Mist
If on the other hand, you are looking for a facial mist with absolutely no essential oils and instead want one where you can run to the grocery store, buy what you need, and get to making it, then this is the toner to try. It couldn’t be simpler.
Herb-Infused Grapefruit Face Toner
And, if again, you are looking a toner with grocery store ingredients BUT is so fresh, you could drink it, then you gotta try this toner. It’s made 100% from real food and there are options for both dry and oily skin types.

DIY Rose Quartz Infused Facial Mist
The theory behind crystal infused facial mists is that the vibrations from the crystal affect the toner water. Rose quartz is known to provide emotional balance and increase self-love, and spritzing your face with this mist should help you emotionally.
Crystal Infused Face Oil Mist
If you are interested in trying another crystal infused facial mist, how about this one? It contains Rose Quartz but also Aquamarine which helps to de-stress. Plus, it includes Frankincense, one of my all-time favorite oils that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This toner is perfect for mature skin!
From Hello Glow.
DIY Vodka Toner
If super basic is more your thing, then you’ll love this toner made simply of green tea and vodka. The vodka will supposedly firm and tighten the skin, not to mention help you feel like a celebrity. Joan Crawford used to apply vodka to her face every day.

Sleep Tight Facial Mist
If you have a difficult time falling asleep at night, you might want to create a toner just for the PM. This toner with lavender fits the bill perfectly, and it comes with a cool, free printable label.
From Design Love Fest.
Green Tea and Lavender Facial Spray
And last, but certainly not least, if you are looking for an evening toner that is also packed with antioxidants, then you’ll want to check out this Green Tea & Lavender recipe. It could also double as a relaxing body moisture spray.

A Word About Curated Posts
The above is a curated post. Some people call them round-ups, but I like the phrase “curated post” a lot better because I have spent hours putting each of these lists together. I have been a Pinterest junkie for years, and I am always looking for the newest or best or most interesting DIY project out there. Finding these items, testing them, and then using them on a daily basis is so much fun AND, I have discovered, helps save me money.
