This Eye Tonic is a lovely alternative to use instead of tea bags or slices of cucumber. If you suffer from tired, puffy or sore eyes, make a batch of this calming tonic to keep in the fridge and use whenever your eyes need refreshing.
It's also great to use before a special night out as it will leave your eyes sparkling and smooth.
2 tablespoons Cornflower petals
1 cup rosewater
1 teaspoon castor oil
1 drop Rose oil
Roughly chop the cornflower petals and add to a saucepan with the rosewater. Gently simmer for 15-20 minutes being careful not to heat too quickly.
Pour into a clean, sterilized wide-mouthed jar and allow to cool.
Add the castor oil and rose oil and shake the jar well to combine all the ingredients.
Soak two clean, fresh cotton wool pads into the tonic then squeeze out the excess liquid.
Place the pads onto your eyes while lying down and leave on for at least 10 minutes.
With the remaining tonic, cover the jar tightly, label the product, including the date and store in the fridge for future use.
