herbal facial steam.

I don't know about you but I've been feeling pretty stressed out lately with the end of my school and work year ending, and sometimes all I need to combat the crankies is some perspective and a little "me" time. This Aromatherapy site has all sorts of lovely concoctions that soothe and relax. Facial steams are also so great because they help detox, hydrate and nourish your skin! My go to recipe once a week has been this simple facial rose water steam:

  •  1. Boil water
    2. Place dried rose petals in a bowl

  • 3. Pour boiled water over the petals 
    4. Add 2 drops of lemon oil + 1/2 cup of chamomile herb + 1 drop of lavender oil

  • 4. Cover your head with a towel and place it over the bowl to prevent steam from escaping

  • 5. Steam your face for 10-15 minutes

  • 6. Pat your face dry with a towel and (apply a facial mask for deep cleaning)
     then apply a light moisturizer. 

     Voilà!  Rejuvenated baby soft skin!
