Our fennel recipe for today's Therapy Thursday is a Gentle Thyme and Fennel Seed Cleanser by the Spa Index. It reduces puffy skin, irritation, and is an astringent.
2 sprigs fresh thyme crumbled (or 1/2 tablespoon dried Thyme)
2 teaspoons fennel seeds crushed
1/2 cup boiling water
Juice of Half Lemon
Mix the thyme and fennel seed in a bowl and cover with boiling water.
Add lemon juice and steep for 15 minutes.
Strain the infusion and store the liquid in a jar, in the refrigerator.
Because this cleanser is very gentle, it can be used each morning. Dab it on your face and neck with a cotton ball, and rinse.
