D.I.Y Setting Spray



Setting Sprays are great for holding makeup in place or for an instant refreshed look... 
If you aren't sure they are for you or if you're looking for a spray that's cost efficient try making your own. For under $15 I was about to make two different sprays plus I have enough left over to remake it again and again over the next several months. I made one using the rose water toner and the other using the lavender essential oil. 

Ingredients:
- Purified Water
- Glycerin*
- Rosewater Toner 
(You can also use drops of essential oils; e.g. lavender/tea tree) 
- 2 Vitamin E capsules 
- Travel Size Spray Bottle

Directions: 
- In the Spray bottle Mix 3 Parts Water to 1 Part Glycerin and shake
(amounts will vary depending on batch or bottle size)
- Squeeze in 2 Vitamin E Capsules 
- Add a few drops of desired scent (oil or toner)
- Shake 

*I recommend only using the contents for about a month. Then cleaning your spray bottle and making a new batch. 

*Please remember when using essential oils they tend to be much stronger. A little goes a long way. For a small travel size spray bottle like the ones pictured above it only took 4 drops.
