Honey Chamomile Toner – Easy DIY Recipe

Toner is a very important part of my skincare routine (as it should be). Here is the post why should not skip toner in your skincare.

Toners help balance the skin’s pH and can soothe, moisturize, or even fight acne-causing bacteria.

Today we are going to make a calming, balancing, and cleansing product for your beautiful skin.

This recipe combines apple cider vinegar to balance the skin’s pH. Chamomile tea soothes any skin type, and honey is there to moisturize and kill bacteria.

This DIY toner for face recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. If you have sensitive or dry skin, use less (around 2 tablespoons). For oily skin, you can add more (up to 6 tablespoons). Alternatively, you can use witch hazel instead of vinegar.

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chamomile flowers (or 1 chamomile tea bag)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 – 6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Pour freshly boiled water into a mug or heatproof container with the chamomile. Let the tea steep for ten minutes.
  2. Remove the tea bag or strain herb solids from the tea.
  3. Add the honey and vinegar to the tea, then stir well to dissolve the honey.
  4. Pour the mixture into a clean bottle.

How To Use

Cleanse your face, apply the toner. Many people use a cotton ball or soft cloth to apply any toner. I personally just pour liquid into my cupped hand. I feel that using cotton ball or cloth causes so much waste for a product.

You can apply several layers of a toner to enhance its effect. (I wrote about this interesting “Seven skin” technique HERE).

Follow with a moisturizer as needed.

Toner’s Safe Storage

Shelf life of this toner without a fridge is 2-3 days (3 days is pushing it in my opinion).

Fridge – 5-7 days (toner contains 2 preservatives: honey and vinegar, so 7 days should be fine).

You can add extra preservatives to extend toners shelf life.

Option 1: Natural Preservatives

Option 2: Phenoxyethanol (very safe if used in correct amounts).

Stay beautiful!!!!!
