Thanks for sharing Jinni!

Although Jinni doesn't have a garden, she does find that thyme as well as many others herbs grow quite well right on her kitchen window sill!

This combination is great toner recipe for all skin types but is especially beneficial for acne prone and oily skin.

Jinni adds that she also uses this toner recipe as a compress for inflamed skin as well, especially for sunburns.

Jinni uses this toner herbal recipe as a compress for sunburns because it promotes healing and is quite soothing. All she does is dampen a cloth with the toner, pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes and she is rewarded with instance relief from her sunburn.

Green Tea Toner Recipe
  • 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 
  • small pot

Combine 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.
