Sage Skin Toner & Astringent


Sage is well known for its ability to cleanse the air of both toxins and negative energy, but did you know that it’s also a blood purifier that can neutralize toxic shock and environmental contaminants? What it means when you put this amazing cleanser and toner on your skin is that you’ll get cleansing, pore tightening, toxin neutralizing, and pH balanced skin.

Using it to clean your face after the beach or camping, to remove make-up, to clean a wound, and to fight acne, tighten pores, and prevent wrinkles makes it one of the best all around skin therapies. It’s also especially refreshing if kept in the fridge and applied to cool your skin on those long, hot days of summer.

The vodka acts as both astringent and preservative, while helping skin to release trauma that can reduce the appearance of scars.

Sage Skin Toner & Astringent Recipe



  • Put half the sage into the glass jar and pour the vodka over it
  • Cap the jar tightly and let it stand for a week, shaking the bottle daily
  • Strain the liquid through a mesh strainer, and discard the sage
  • Put the other half of the dried or fresh sage in the jar, and add the strained liquid
  • Let it stand another week, shaking the jar daily
  • The liquid should have a strong herbal odor
  • Strain the liquid into a clean bottle using a fine mesh strainer, lined with an unbleached coffee filter
  • Add the witch hazel astringent to the strained liquid
  • Add 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oil:


  • Lavender oil if you like the smell like flowers, want to kill bacteria, and calm skin
  • Ylang-ylang oil if you like the smell of a flower garden and want younger skin
  • Tea Tree oil if you need bacteria and mold/fungal killing properties, and tighter skin
  • Peppermint oil if you like the smell of mint, want tingling pores and stimulation of collagen and elastin
There are so many wonderful properties found in each essential oil, you can use one, two or even three all together to get a combination of scents, medicinal benefits, and glowing skin.
  • For a more bracing astringent, add yarrow oil or myrrh oil to the mix.
  • For a milder astringent, add 1/4 cup distilled water or us a less astringent herb in place of sage, such as chamomile.
