My DIY Anti-Aging & Antibacterial Face Mist

In preparation for my trip to Indonesia happening in the next couple of days, I thought I would take the time to read a little bit about products that I can bring on the plane with me, specifically for keeping my face clean and looking half decent before getting off the plane. I immediately felt very overwhelmed by the amount of products out there, specifically face mists, and for a not-so-cheap penny either. I had some time on my hands between my daily “running around schedule”, that I decided I would make my own. With a little help from the internet, and some of my essential oils, I created an antibacterial, skin protecting face mist. Here’s how I did it.
