By Bargz Oils September 27, 2019


Things you will need:

- 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin

1 tablespoon witch hazel hydrosol

3 tablespoon rose hydrosol

Fine mist spray bottle

Measuring cup



    Have you ever used a makeup setting spray? Makeup setting sprays enhance makeup by giving it a finishing touch. Using a makeup setting spray give the face a soft glow. It’s pretty simple to use a makeup setting spray. You just spray it on your face after applying makeup and let it dry and your makeup will look perfect.

    Most makeup setting sprays that we can buy are artificial and they contain chemicals that cause harm to the body. Luckily, it’s easy to make your own makeup setting spray using hydrosols.




    1. Vegetable glycerin

    Vegetable glycerin is a natural humectant. It retains or preserves moisture and locks it into the skin. Vegetable glycerin seals the skin and makes makeup look matte and not shiny or cakey. It gives the skin a soft glowy look.

    2. Witch hazel hydrosol

    A natural astringent, witch hazel tightens, tones and firms the skin. The witch hazel in the makeup setting spray reduces oiliness and shrinks large pores.

     3. Rose hydrosol

    Rose hydrosol is aromatic water obtained from the steam distillation of fresh or dried flowers of the Rosa Damascena or commonly known as the Rose plant. Rose hydrosol has a similar scent and properties as the essential oil but is less concentrated. Rose hydrosol is clear to pale gold in color. It possesses a medium intensity rose scent. Since rose hydrosol is aromatic water, it is water-soluble and can be used directly on the skin without further dilution. 

                   Rose hydrosol can be used in place of water in making natural fragrances, lotions, creams, and other skincare and body products. This aromatic water can nourish and moisturize all skin types. It is rich in Vitamin C, which boosts collagen and prevents premature aging. The astringent properties of Rose hydrosol make it perfect as a facial toner to make skin tighter and firmer. 

                   The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of rose hydrosol can treat acne, itchy skin and other bacterial skin infections. Rose hydrosol is also an effective skin cleanser because of its antiseptic properties. 

                    Rose hydrosol is the perfect hydrosol for homemade makeup setting spray because of its lingering scent of sweet, beautiful roses. 


    1. Pour the witch hazel hydrosol and rose hydrosol in the measuring cup.

    2. Add the vegetable glycerin and stir well to mix.

    3. Pour the mixture into the fine mist spray bottle.

    4. After applying makeup, spray onto your face. 


                     You can also spray it on your face in the middle of the day to refresh your makeup and reduce oiliness. If you want your rose hydrosol makeup setting spray to be extra cooling and refreshing, you can store it inside the refrigerator.
