A beautiful, sensual blend of flowers and herbs to use as a facial steam or drink as a tea (or both, because why not!) Beyond looking beautiful, this blend is a great addition to your skin care regiment, especially if you have congested, dry or lack lustre skin.
Steaming your face opens your pores, increases blood circulation to the skin, deeply hydrates and can even help plump and brighten your complexion. The natural volatile oils (the beneficial chemical constituents) of the herbs more easily penetrate your skin when your pores are warm, hydrated and dilated, allowing for their benefits to go further. Beyond that it's a very meditative, relaxing experience that can also aid in decongesting the respiratory system.
1. Gently cleanse skin using your usual routine.
2. Place one Tablespoon of herbs in a heatproof bowl (wider the mouth the better), and top with 1.5 cups of boiling water.
3. Using a towel covering your face and shoulders, hover above the bowl approximately 10-15 inches (depending on your comfort and tolerance) and breathe in the aromatic steam for 5-15 minutes. Breathe, meditate, enjoy.
*** This is not recommended for people with open wounds, overly sensitive, hot or inflamed skin (such as rosacea, severe acne, sunburns, etc). When in doubt, err on the side of caution
