It is necessary

  • - boiling water - 0.5 liters
  • - oregano - 3 tablespoons
  • - ice molds
  • - a few drops of any essential oil


Step 1

Chop dried oregano if it is hand-picked and dried in bunches.

Step 2

Boil 3 tablespoons of herbs and flowers in 0.5 liters of water for 5-10 minutes, then let it brew for an hour. Another option: pour boiling water over the oregano (the proportions are the same) and leave for about two hours. You now have a versatile infusion (or decoction) that you can use as a cosmetic in several ways.

Step 3

Soak a cotton pad in the infusion and wipe your face and neck twice a day - in the morning and in the evening.

Step 4

Rinse your hair after washing: this will give it volume, strengthen the hair follicles, and get rid of excessive sebum secretion. It will also give your hair a fragrant summer scent of herbs and flowers.

Step 5

The same broth can be added to the bath: fill the bath with warm water that is comfortable for your body and pour the infusion or decoction of oregano into it. It is recommended to take a bath within 20-30 minutes, and best of all after using a shower gel or soap. The beneficial substances of the decoction will be absorbed better into the pores of the cleansed skin and will give a greater effect: the skin will become smooth and elastic.

Step 6

The beneficial properties of the broth do not last long (2 days in the refrigerator), but there is a way to preserve the natural cosmetic for a longer period. Pour the resulting broth or infusion into ice molds and freeze (you can also use plastic containers from the box of chocolates for this). Twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, wipe the skin of the face with the obtained cosmetic ice. This will narrow the pores, get rid of excess sebum, make the skin fresh and matte, nourish it with useful substances.

Step 7

In the infusion, before wiping your face or freezing ice, you can drop any essential oil - 2-3 drops per half liter of infusion. Explore the beneficial properties of an essential oil (which ones may be relevant to your skin) or choose an oil based on its scent.
