Hi Everyone! I'm currently formulating a lotion recipe meant for both face and body. I got this idea to put witch hazel as an astringent since 1 of the oils that I want to use can have a clogging effect on the face. My skin LOVES Sunflower Oil! My face sucks it up as though it was begging for it! The skin on my body responds well to it also. Too much on my face causes pimples though... which is why I thought to put in some witch hazel to counteract this.

Can anyone tell me if there is any basis for sense in my idea or is it just nonsense?

Thank You,
Asha :)
