How to Create a DIY Facial Mist with Essential Oils! - Inspire Me Naturally

Facial mists are one of the easiest ways to add hydration to your skin, especially during the dry winter months. They can also provide a cooling sensation during hot weather, and give you an instant refresh with just a quick spritz.

Instead of spending money on expensive store-bought sprays, we love creating DIY facial mists with natural ingredients. Keep reading as we share how you can create a DIY facial mist with essential oils below!

What are the benefits of facial mists?

Facial mists have many wonderful benefits for our skin. They can add moisture and hydration to dry skin, while helping you feel refreshed and energized when you need a quick pick-me-up.

In summer, facial mists can also help you cool down and keep your body temperature regulated. And in winter, facial mists can provide a much-needed boost of hydration to nourish and plump your skin. Facial mists can even be used to refresh your makeup, or in between makeup layers for smoother application.

What essential oils are best for DIY facial mists?

We love using essential oils in our DIY facial mists for some added skincare goodness! When using essential oils for skincare, we recommend the following:

  • Frankincense oil: for skin blemishes and irritation
  • Lavender oil: to calm and soothe your skin
  • Peppermint oil: to energize and providing a cooling effect
  • Lemon oil: to brighten your complexion
  • Tea tree oil: to provide antibacterial properties

    Creating your own facial mist at home is easy using just a few natural ingredients.

    You’ll need:

    • Distilled water
    • Alcohol-free Witch hazel
    • 5-10 drops of your chosen essential oils
    • A small spray bottle

    Simply fill your spray bottle ¾ full with distilled water, and top with witch hazel. Add your chosen essential oils, and shake well before spritzing! We recommend storing your facial mist in the fridge for best results.
