At Home Facial Steams
At Home Herbal Facial Steams
After a long week of traffic, work, kids, appointments and the chaos of life who doesn't need an at home facial steam! Once you put that towel over your head and close your eyes you drift off to an oasis of herbs and flowers! YES Please!
To make: Add dried flowers and/or herbs of your choice to a teapot along with 2 cups of boiling water. Allow to steep for ten minutes, then press or strain out herbs/flowers, pouring the hot infusion into a large bowl. Add in any essential oils at this point. Then, hang your head over the bowl/sink, about 6-8 inches away, and drape a towel over your head, creating a steam tent. Steam your face and neck for about 5 minutes. Then rinse your face and neck with lukewarm water and pat dry. Proceed to lay down in a quite room and imagine you are on a beach with no stress :)
