HOME REMEDY: Yarrow
As a skin toner it is wonderful to dry out oily skin, tighten pores and tone the skin. Lavender and sage can be added to this toner.
Yarrow flowers are good to make a tincture with – this is when you soak the flowers in alcohol and leave in the sun for 2 to 3 days, then in the dark for a week or so, shaking every few days. The essential oil of the flowers is also good to use in skin complaints.
