As rose petals are as­trin­gent, they can be used to tone skin, re­duce acne and stop bleed­ing. To make a toner for the face, place dried rose petals in a clean jar and com­pletely cover with witch hazel. Se­cure the lid and shake. Set aside for at least 24 hours un­til the colour of the petals fades. They will turn al­most white. Strain into a glass bowl. Squeeze the petals to get out ex­cess liq­uid. Pour into a glass jar and after cleans­ing, ap­ply lightly to your skin with a cot­ton ball.
