Green Tea and Thyme Skin Toner
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.
Many herbs such as rosemary, thyme, and mint freeze very well for use in recipes all year long.
Use a cotton ball to tone the skin every day. The tea thyme toner can be kept for at least a week in the refrigerator.
