Homemade Herbal Tea Face Mist For Spring

Yes, spring is really coming. A time of rebirth. Let’s wake up that tired winter skin with an invigorating yet calming spring facial mist.

Carry it with you all day long and give yourself a little spritz whenever you need a little pick-me-up. This stuff is pure gold.


Tea of your choice
Distilled water
Essential oil of your choice
Vitamin E oil (or replacement, listed below)

Spring face mist DIY

You can use any kind of tea your heart desires. I chose green tea, which is full of antioxidants to fight acne and keep skin looking young. Chamomile is wonderful if you’re looking to reduce inflammation and under-eye circles.

Choose whichever essential oils you desire, as well. I used the always romantic jasmine because it’s my favorite — some other great options are ylang-ylang for its uplifting properties, vanilla for stress-relief, and rose to help reverse negative emotions.

You can also switch out the vitamin E oil for jojoba, sweet almond, or rose hip oil.


1. First, brew a cup of tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes, then allow to cool.

2. Fill an atomizer bottle a little over 3/4 of the way. Add in a few drops of essential oil, and top off with vitamin E (or a replacement).

3. Screw on the top, shake well, and spritz away! This mixture should stay good for about 2-3 weeks if stored in the refrigerator.

It seems like winter will never go away in Maryland right now, but once it gets warmer, I will definitely make this. It sounds really fun and refreshing! Thanks for the idea :D

Where did you get the gorgeous bottle?

This is awesome! I actually experiment with making my own beauty products, and have used a mixture of almond oil and lavender essential oil – so refreshing and soothing. My skin is extremely sensitive, so I stopped using over the counter products altogether… my skin has never felt or looked better.

This is such a beautiful idea! (And a beautiful bottle too by the way!)
Will definitely be trying this before Winter comes! :)

Thank you so much for this idea! I keep dried used tea in a container to dye fabric with and I used some to make this mist! It felt so nice as body spray after getting out of the shower and made my skin super soft! I recommend vit E oil and a few drops of peppermint oil.

May I use Vitamin C instead of Vitamin E ?

Hi, can I use distilled drinking water?

Rissa -November 24, 2014, 2:38AM

Couldn’t you mix two types of tea to get the benefits for both?
