Thyme…what?? A few years back I decided I no longer wanted to use benzoyl peroxide products on my skin. I found it extremely drying and very harsh on my skin. On the sensitive skin of my children, it was a nightmare. Knowing that we could not use this, we needed to find something else to kill the bacteria on our skin.
After lots of research I discovered thyme.
A recent study carried out by researchers at Leeds University suggests that thyme may have a greater antibacterial effect than standard concentrations of benzoyl peroxide in the treatment of acne.
I incorporated thyme into my Apple Cider Vinegar toner, to help reduce acne. It is a great product in my family. We love it! I decided to infuse thyme in my olive oil for use in our facial products. It can be found in our soaps and toner. We are currently working on a Clean Palate for acne prone skin which will contain olive oil infused with thyme, along with some other skin loving items!
