    I was SUPER excited to use this toner idea and experiment with it, BUT, (I know the mischievous and disheartening BUT), I was wondering about what the effects of witch hazel would do to my skins PH balance; SO I decided to do a little bit of digging. What I’ve found, (which is not necessarily accurate because, hey, its the internet and I’m not an expert), is that which hazel might not be that great for your PH Balance. However, apple cider vinegar is a good toner and also is known (supposedly) to help with your skins PH. So I’m thinking that what I’m going to try is to infuse thyme in apple cider vinegar, (if thats possible…?), and use that as a toner. Good luck everyone!

      i was thinking that too but i’m worried that the acid in the vinegar might counter act the effectiveness of the thyme

        The AVC will draw the properties out of the Herbs and will not reduce its effectiveness. That’s how you make herbal vinegars!

    How funny is it that i have been cleansing my face with pumpkin seed oil ( all organic products and herbs!) and adding a few drops of Rosehip seed oil and then moisturizing with Tamanu oil with the thyme essentil oil mixed in lol! Read about thyme being a blemish superhero in Dr. Oz’s magazine “The Good Life” and decided to try it. I do believe that nature is the cure. Besides the smell which isn’t horrible yet i smell something like salad, i think my skin is looking awesome! VERY happy with the results as i have been struggling with adult acne for some time. I also model so it is important to me to have healthy skin. Keeping this routine! Oregano oil is good too by the way:). Also look up oils that contain the highest amounts of Linoleic acid, acne skin is said to be deficient in this. Pumpkin seed oil is very high in this! Give it a try!!

  3. You are so interesting! I do not believe I’ve read
    through something like that before. So great to discover someone with

    hey I love your site with all the helpful remedies & tips!! I too stumbled across that research article about the thyme experiment. Also – I make tinctures & infused oils with various other plants, herbs, botanicals etc…. the alcohol they were referring to was from tincturing principles of using (well highest recommended for tincturing) pure-grain alcohol or Everclear. These purest of alcohols aren’t available in every state so the next best thing is usually used – 100 proof vodka for example or Bacardi 151 type which is a higher ethanol percentage …. 100 proof being like 50% ethanol and so on…. apple cider vinegar, honey, vegetable glycerin are also used, but making a tincture from the higher alcohols is what brings out the useful vitamins nutrients & volatile oils etc in whatever you’re concocting :) …… witch hazel is also a wonderful component for tincturing thyme especially for the remedying of acne… i too suffer from loads of it – currently sporting a group of Mount Everzit as we speak lol …. with a tincture in the works of so many things & combos its like imma scientist over here hahaha … anyway next time you wanna make a tincture for any health benefit or beauty product or anything, try it with drinking alcohol. Chamomile & Lavender & Rosemary & Oregano are a few others that aid in acne zapping. Best of Luck XOXO

    my brother had terible achne for most of his teens and various creams and scrubs didnt help at all, he used just tyme infused in 90% alcohol, it worked very well i recomend it to any!, the alcohol cant be as bad for the skin as biactol creams or the achne as it evaporates very quikly just leaving the tyme extract i wouldent wory about it, and it leaves you smeling like a delicious roast dinner!

  9. No matter if some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she needs to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over
