Multi-Purpose Skin Care Formula

Is it a toner? Is it a cleanser? Is it an aftershave? Is it an after-bath body splash? Yes! One simple formula can do all this and more: the ingredients soften and refresh the skin, balance the pH, and have anti-microbial properties as well. This one formula can meet all your skin-care needs.

1 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup distilled water
1/4 cup dried thyme
1/4 cup dried lavender

1. Place the dried thyme and lavender in a saucepan along with the vinegar and heat to a simmer over low heat. Allow to simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Strain herbs and discard them, then allow the vinegar to cool.

2. Add the distilled water to the vinegar, decant into a pretty jar or bottle, and store in a cool dark place.

3. To use, splash on skin and allow to air-dry.

Shelf Life: Indefinite, unless you see mold growing. If you do, toss it out!
