Wash about handful of elder flowers and mix 6 tbsp of boiling water into a large jar. Keep overnight and strain it the next day. In case you are using dried flowers, use only 2 tbsp.

For an oily skin, you can use this mixture:

5 tbsp cucumber juice
4 tbsp eau-de-cologne
This is very effective on open pores.

For a dry skin, heat half cup of buttermilk or plain milk and 6 tbsp of elder flowers together slowly on a very low heat for 30 minutes. Remove it and let it cool for 3 hours. Re-heat, strain and add 1 tbsp of honey. Mix well. This mixture is especially good or hard and itchy skin.
