All-natural beauty products are hard to come by and can be expensive. Concoct your very own blend of herbs to get rid of oil and dirt naturally.

Step 1: Boil liquid
Pour water and witch hazel into a saucepan and bring it to a full boil over medium heat.

Step 2: Remove from heat and add herbs
Remove the water mixture from heat and pour in the nettle, chamomile, calendula, comfrey, eucalyptus, peppermint, and lavender. Allow to sit for 2 to 3 hours.

You should be able to find all of the herbs at your local natural foods or health store. Call to make sure they have everything you need before heading out.

Step 3: Strain
Strain the liquid to remove all herbs -- you may need to strain more than once.

Cheesecloth or a mesh sieve will give the best results when straining.

Step 4: Add lemons and steep
Add the lemon peels to the liquid and reheat to a full boil. Remove from heat and allow to steep for 2 to 3 hours.

Step 5: Remove lemons add potassium
Remove the lemon skins from the liquid and stir in the potassium sorbate. The potassium acts as a preservative.

Step 6: Pour into a bottle
Pour the liquid into a sterile bottle and put it on your bathroom counter for easy access. Use it to remove oils and give your skin a beautiful healthy glow.
