DIY Herbal Infusion for Glowing Skin

DIY Herbal Infusion for Glowing Skin

 Beautiful, healthy skin isn’t just a result of topical application of skincare products, it starts within. When our inner health is out of balance, it can manifest on the skin through all sorts of break-outs and rashes. A simple, yet powerful way to find that balance is by incorporating teas into our daily routine.


In addition to providing hydration, herbal teas bring so much more to the table: they soothe, regulate, rejuvenate and enhance the overall skin health. When we cover the herbs with boiling hot water, it coaxes skin-healthy nutrients to release into it and makes them readily available for our bodies to benefit from.


All herbs in this blend bring their distinctive properties, and together they form a well balanced tea that also tastes good! Packed with vitamins and minerals, not only this blend is beneficial for the skin, but also supports the body on multiple levels:


  • Horsetail is one of the richest sources of bio-available silica that forms the matrix of many of the body’s tissues
  • Lemon balm is rich in skin protecting flavonoids and rosmarinic acid, and has invigorating and astringent properties
  • Nettle leaf is often referred to as ‘nature’s multi-vitamin’ and has traditionally been used to restore function to many systems in the body
  • Milky oats have long been a remedy for itchy and dry skin, and are a wonderful nervine
  • Red clover is an excellent cleansing tonic for the entire body with a wide range of nutrients
  • Rosehips are chockfull of vitamin C
  • Marshmallow root works to soothe parched tissues and balance out some of the dryer herbs
  • Calendula is an overall skin tonic that calms and eases skin discomfort
  • Mint tastes delicious and aids digestion
