  • We hope that you enjoyed and tried out the cleansing milk recipes in our last newsletter, if you missed it the article can be found in our article section. This week we bring you recipes in how to make toning lotions at home; this easily forgettable lotion should be part of your daily facial routine care as it removes any dead skin cells, dirt, excess oil that has not been removed by the cleanser, as well as helps to unclog pores and prevent acne.

  • Green Tea Thyme Toner

  • Combine 4 to 5 good quality green tea bags or several heaping teaspoons of green tea leaves, 1/3 to 1/2 cup of fresh thyme roughly chopped 2 cups of mineral or vitamin water, all ingredients in a small pot. Bring the pot to a boil then turn down the heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and let the tea and thyme steep until cool.

  • This will make a rich, highly concentrated green tea and thyme solution. Squeeze out each tea bag thoroughly over the pot; press the thyme with the back of a spoon to release every bit of the herb, and then strain liquid into a container.

  • The tea thyme toner can be kept for at least a week in the refrigerator. Thyme and tea together promotes circulation in addition to possessing antioxidant, astringent, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
