If anyone tries it before I do a recap, let me know if it actually works!
For Clear Skin, Just Rub Thyme All Over Your FaceOh Lordy. Here we've all been buying fancy spot treatments and expensive elixirs to rid ourselves of acne, when it turns out the answer to our problem might have been growing in the herb garden all along. Thanks for telling us, Mother Nature. Yes, a new study has found that herbal preparations of thyme might be more effective at treating acne than current prescription remedies.

Sadly, more research needs to be done before thyme tincture can be declared clinically effective for acne, but if these finding are confirmed, it could be a great, more natural and gentle alternative to acne treatment. Of course, if you want to make some kind of thyme poultice or tincture on your own and test it out, there's nothing to stop you. While you're at it, why not go all out and stick a few sprigs of rosemary up your nose too. You could be clear-skinned and clear-headed in no time—or you could just look like an idiot with herbs smeared all over your face. But either way, you'll smell delicious.
PS - Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Work has been crazy busy and Allan had a bike accident this past weekend, keeping me from doing a lot of blogging. (Yes, I am going to blame him...ha.) I do though have some AWESOME posts lined up for next week!!
