I modified this DIY recipe from the No More Dirty Looks blog, Thyme Toner recipe & made it into a spot treatment. It works great as a spot/blemish treatment!
2-3 tbsp dried organic thyme
6 tbsp witch hazel
1/8 tsp lavender essential oil (optional)
1/8 tsp rosemary essential oil (optional)
Place the thyme in an air tight glass jar (like a mason jar) & pour the witch hazel on top. Let it steep for 3 days (or less if you don’t want it as strong). Once you’re finished steeping, strain the thyme out of the witch hazel. I used a tea strainer for this. If desired, add the lavender & rosemary essential oils for extra anti-septic power. Transfer to the container of your desire. I used an empty glass rollerball container that had previously been used for roll on perfume. That way I don’t need to use a cotton pad or swab to apply it. I just roll it directly onto my blemishes. Store the rest of the spot treatment in the fridge for up to a month.
I’ve been using this on my blemishes & it works really well! It has a slight brownish tinge when I put it on my skin but that goes away once my skin absorbs it. It doesn’t stain my skin at all. Now I won’t have to buy anymore acne spot treatments from the store unless I need to test out a new brand for my blog.
Have you ever tried making your own blemish treatment? If you try this one please let me know how it turned out for you!
