Vegan beauty is not something I regularly explore on my blog, but it’s certainly part of my daily life.
Because being “vegan” goes beyond what’s on your plate- it also extends to your hygiene and beauty products, which often relies on animals or chemicals to do the job. Fortunately, it’s not that hard to substitute beauty products with homemade counterparts.
The bonus is that you’ll be saving yourself some cash, while also treating yourself with good-for-you ingredients! #winwin #treatyoself
Perhaps my favorite vegan beauty product I enjoy making myself is this EASY Lavender Toner.
When I’m making this at home, I feel like I should be sitting in Professor Snape’s potion class, because the results are so good it might as well be magic.
“Turn to page three hundred and ninety FOUR.”
Luckily, you don’t have to be a wizard to get the job done. All you need is a bottle of witch hazel, some dried lavender, and five minutes prep time.
Yup, just TWO INGREDIENTS and FIVE MINUTES. You love it already, don’t you?
Btw, using lavender as part of your beauty regime is wonderful because it’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and contains anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps your skin heal faster if you are prone to acne, while helping prevent future breakouts. When combined with the powers of witch hazel (which soothes and cleanses your skin), you will be well on your way to a natural glowing complexion.
What’s more, I’ve designed these beautiful downloadable (PDF) labels for you to attach to your finished product, making them a fantastic choice for homemade Christmas gifts and/or other special occasions!
Simply print labels on sticker paper and attach to your jar (or bottle) of choice. Bad-a-bing-bada-boom: instant gift for all your lady friends. You’re welcome.
Included are two types of labels: one for the tops of small mason jar lids (with separate “directions” tags for mini gifts), and the other for large up-cycled bottles. With this printable pack, you’ll have the option for both single print (1) AND a bulk print (6). You can get your Downloadable Printable Label Pack by clicking here.
Now, onward to the recipe!
