Thyme for Acne?
While the study isn’t published yet, some researchers from the U.K. have found that a tincture of thyme (thyme steeped in alcohol) is reportedly more effective at killing the bacteria that causes acne than standard chemical remedies.
These findings may not be conclusive, but that doesn’t keep you from trying it for yourself or your teenager. You may also find that the thyme tincture is less abrasive to your skin.
Sorry, no abstract on this one.
