Dandelion for Skincare

 Using Dandelions in Your Skincare

Reasons to use dandelion:

- They contain lots of antioxidants such as vitamin C.

- They are anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory.  They can help minimize skin irritation and inflammation.  

- Use for rashes, eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

-Great for sensitive skin.

-The sap in the stems is also useful.  Use it for age spots, warts, skin inflammation, insect bites and pimples.

-They increase your skin's hydration and help sustain functions of the skin as they contain magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and potassium.

-They aid in collagen production.

You can use dandelions in many different skincare products including balm, and oils.   But one of my favorites is in a spray that you can use as a skin refresher or toner.

You will need:

a spray bottle

essential oils

optional: glycerin, aloe, or your favorite oil

one of the following: a dandelion hydrosol,  dandelion tea, or dandelion infused witch hazel.  For the hydrosol, I like to use fresh flowers, for the tea, you can use either.  For the witch hazel you will want to soak dried dandelions in witch hazel for about a week before making your spray.


Using a small funnel, pour a teaspoon of glycerin, aloe or oil if you wish into a glass spray bottle.  Add in your favorite essential oils and fill with tea, hydrosol or witch hazel.
