1 Spoon

1 Blender (optional)

1 Lemon squeezer (optional)

Directions for Aloe Vera and Lemon Toner:

1. Grab a lemon and roll it back and forth on a firm surface. This helps the lemon release the juice more easily when you begin to squeeze it. Then begin to squeeze it.

2. Take your Aloe Vera Leaf and cut it in half then cut it down the spikey side so the clear meaty part will be exposed. Take a spoon and scrape it out into a bowl. *If using the desert lily aloe Vera in a bottle skip this process and jump right to pouring it into a bowl*

3. Combine the ingredients into a blender

4. Get your spray bottle or jar and insert the funnel into it, pour the mixture in and shake it up. Add an oil like coconut oil
