Herbal Skin Tonic


Tone with nature

Skin care products are loaded with chemicals and preservatives, even those that claim to be “all natural” .  Since our skin is our largest organ we should not clog it with all those harsh chemicals, many of which serve no purpose at all.  Making our own natural skin care products is guaranteed fresh, pure and  affordable.

Use 1 teaspoon of the dried herb or 3 teaspoons of the fresh if available and add to 1 cup of boiling water.  Let it sit for 15 minutes and then strain, let cool.  Fill into a glass bottle and keep in the fridge.  The tonic will only last for four days, so don’t make too much at one time.

Dry skin: Camomile flowers, lavender

Mature skin: Lemon balm leaves and Calendula flowers

Oily skin:  Myrtle and Rosemary leaves

Acne prone skin: Comfrey leaves and Red clover flowers
