It's 'thyme' to make a herbal acne remedy!

The thing with acne (whether teenage acne, adult acne, back acne, chest acne, face acne) is that it can respond to one treatment for a while and then flare up again. A series of different acne remedies can help you get on top of it.
Vinegar has powerful anti-bacterial properties. Thyme is anti-viral and anti-fungal as well as anti-bacterial. Put the two together - well, you've got a great disinfectant, but it doesn't smell too good!

This technique of preserving herbs is very useful to master. You can dry small quantities at a time - say, if you've only just got a harvest or if you've got some left from buying a bunch at the supermarket. I use it to keep my Aerogarden and other indoor herbs at a reasonable size.
If you want to be super-economical, then co-ordinate your drying herbs session with a time you've just finished cooking and use the residual heat.
Basil can grow like a weed once it starts. You can freeze it very easily. If you've got a dehydrator, then give that a go as well. Dried basil works well in pasta sauces and you know if you've grown it yourself, then it's pesticide free.
