    Chamomile and mint cleanser

    In a medium sized cooking pot, combine 2 tablespoons of dried chamomile flowers and half a cup of fresh chopped mint with four cups of water, and bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat. Now, reduce the heat to medium and allow the mixture to simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the concoction from the heat and allow the herbs to sit and steep for another five minutes before straining the mixture into a jar. Cover the jar with an airtight lid and store in the refrigerator. This cleanser can be used for up to two weeks. Using a cotton ball, apply this cleanser to your face just like any store bought facial cleanser.
