People who do not like the smell of strong perfumes normally opt for body splashes. Body splashes contain a small proportion of alcohol and hence it acts as a mild skin toner without excessively drying the skin.
Most body splashes are enriched with vitamin E. Body splashes can be prepared easily at home and do not cost one tenth of what you would have to pay if you were to procure a body splash from a high end store.
Refreshing Lemon Body Splash Recipe:
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, simmer two cups of distilled water over a low flame. Next remove the peel of one lemon and put the lemon peel into the water.
Continue simmering the water containing the lemon peel for a few minutes. Then remove the saucepan from the flame and allow the lemon infused water to cool down. Once the water has cooled down, pour it into an attractive glass bottle.
Now pour two cups of witch hazel oil into the bottle along with a couple of slivers of lemon peel. Shake the bottle and allow the liquid to settle down for a couple of days before using the splash. Splash a small quantity of this refreshing liquid on your body after bathing and enjoy a mild citrus scent throughout the day.
