Moisturizing tonic for face and neck

Moisturizing tonic is especially useful in summer. It is made in some stages. First of all prepare infusion from marigold flowers. Pour 2 table-spoons of cut flowers with 1 glass of boiling water and keep for half an hour, then filter. Then make rose water from rose-petals. Pour 2 table-spoons of petals with 1 glass of boiling water and keep to infuse.

Mix 2 table-spoons of glycerin, 2 table-spoons of rose water and 2 table-spoons of infusion from marigold flowers carefully. Clean the face and neck with tonic every day and enjoy pleasant feelings.

Is it possible to make this mixture in bulk and store it? How long would you recommend storing it for?

If I'm going to do this daily, I figure I can make it once and use it for a few weeks at a time.

Thank you for your question, Amanda. It seems that you can’t make tonic in bulk, because of its own qualities. Maybe you’d better to make one standard bottle for beginning. It can be used during one week, not longer. Then you’ll prepare fresh mixture again. It’s recommended to use only sterilized bottles or glass jars, and keep made tonic in the fridge, separately from foodstuffs. Anyway protect tonic from straight sun rays. Thanks again, Amanda, you prompt me the theme for one of the next posts - about rules of preparation and storing homemade remedies.
