Acne Relief Tea
Barberry ~ Potent antimicrobial agent that stops oozing.

In order to reduce acne, it’s best to clean the blood. Acne does not result from dirty skin alone. It occurs when increased production of the male hormone testosterone stimulates the skin to produce greater amounts of sebum. Testosterone causes the skin to thicken and underlying tissues. Other factors that contribute to acne are stress, heredity, oily skin, and overgrowth of Yeast Candida albicans.

Start Fast, End Slow
Step 1 ~ Take 1 teaspoon of loose leaf herbs out of package. Insert into tea bag if desired. Allow herbs to soak in water for ten to fifteen minuteman prior to boiling.
Step 2 ~ Using filtered or good quality bottled water boil 1 cup of water (or cover 1 inch of water) in a non metallic pot or stainless steel kettle. Add tea.
Step 3 ~ After tea has been brought to a boil, allow to stand for five to ten minutes with cover on.
Step 4 ~ When the water reaches your desired temperature, strain if needed and drink. You can also add honey to sweeten.
*Note ~ It’s important to not lift the lid of the pot too often while boiling. Many herbs contain aromatic oils that can escape if they are boiled in an open pot. If the tea is overcooked or burned, discard the herbs. Never add water to cook again.
