Using natural ingredients, this simple recipe allows you to harness the power of herbs for a customized skincare experience where you can tailor to your specific needs. Let's get started!

Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup dried herbs of your choice (such as chamomile, lavender, calendula, or rose petals)
- 1/2 cup carrier oil (such as avocado oil, grapeseed oil, or jojoba oil)
- Glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
- Cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer

2. Pour the carrier oil over the herbs, ensuring they are completely submerged.
3. Close the jar tightly with the lid.
4. Store the jar in a cool, dark place for 4 to 6 weeks to allow the herbs to infuse into the oil. Shake the jar gently every few days to agitate the mixture.
5. After the infusion period, strain the oil using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove the herb remnants.
6. Use a funnel to transfer the infused oil into a glass bottle for convenient application.
7. Your DIY herbal-infused facial oil is now ready for use!

Application and Storage:
1. Cleanse your face thoroughly and pat it dry.

3. Gently massage the oil into your skin using upward motions, focusing on areas that need extra hydration or attention.
4. Allow the oil to absorb fully before applying other skincare products or makeup.
