DIY Lavender Water
Lavender is one of my favorite pampering scents to use in my self-care routine. Have you tried my French Lavender Soap DIY yet?

This DIY lavender water toner is a simple floral water you can use to soothe and freshen your skin. If you’ve never used lavender water for face care, I really hope that you’ll try it.
It can be both cooling and soothing to use floral water to rinse your face. And, there are many ways that lavender can be beneficial to your skin.
What is lavender water good for?
Just like rose water, lavender water can help improve your mood. Many people use lavender to help them sleep, manage anxiety, improve depression, and overall wellness.
But, it can also benefit your skin by improving hydration, improving texture, and helping to reduce skin breakouts.
Is lavender water a toner?
When many people hear the word toner, they think of something that includes witch hazel or alcohol. And, while they can certainly be used in facial toners, they are often very drying.
This DIY lavender water is a toner that relies on the properties of the lavender buds and leaves. It’s cleansing and soothing and makes a wonderful option for people with sensitive skin.
Is lavender water good for acne?
Yes, lavender is very beneficial for those with acne and blemishes. It helps to clear the bacteria from your skin which can help improve breakouts.
How do you make lavender toner?
All you really need to do is to boil water and allow the lavender flowers and leaves to seep in the water to release the floral properties. Then, you will strain the water and allow it to cool.
How should I store this?
If you won’t be using all of this at one time, be sure to store it in the refrigerator. There are no preservatives in this DIY lavender water so you need to keep it cold to prevent bacteria from forming.
You can store this in a glass jar with a lid and just pour a bit into your hands to splash on your face. Or, if you prefer, you can pour it into a small spray bottle and spritz it on instead.
What do I need to make this project?
- Glass or plastic jar
- Small metal bowl
- Fresh lavender buds with leaves
- Metal strainer or cheesecloth
- A plastic lavender sprig for decoration (optional)
Is lavender or rose petal better for skin?
