Using a facial steam increases circulation, opens pores, moisturizes and stimulates your skin. The steam will not only clear your complexion but also clear your sinuses to relieve congestion at the same time. Below is a basic facial steam recipe that you can use and or modify by using your choice of essential oils.

  • 1 quart of boiling water
  • 1 large handful of herbs appropriate for your skin type
  • 5 drops of essential oils appropriate for your skin type

Steep the herbs in the boiling water for at least 5 minutes, covered. Remove the lid and add your essential oils. Cover your head with a towel over the pot and steam your face for up to 10 minutes. Strain the herbs from the water and save the tea to use as the final rinse water at the end of a facial.
