I get an e-mail weekly from Food Renegade, sometimes it is very interesting. This week she has a recipe so you can use that mint that's taking over your gardens!

Homemade Apple Mint Skin Toner: The Recipe
Homemade Skin Toner: The Players

3 tsp chopped fresh mint
2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 cups soft water

Homemade Skin Toner: The How-To

1) Place the mint and apple cider vinegar in a screw top jar. Leave on your counter top for 7 days. The mint infuses the vinegar and gives it a delightful aroma.

2) Strain the liquid into a bowl and add the water to your vinegar mixture. Stir well, and pour your newly created homemade apple mint skin toner into a clean, lidded jar and store in a cool place.

3) Enjoy! So simple, and it creates a beautiful and refreshing toner perfect for countering the effects of summer heat.
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

I'm not much of a cream & toner person either, but this does sound refreshing! Thanks!

You bet!

I will say, my mom's treatment for sun burn was always vinegar. We might have smelt like pickles, but it was incredibly cooling. So maybe this might work in this summer heat, too.
