Purifying Facial Steam Blend
free shipping within the US!
Ever wonder why we steam our face during a facial? - A great way to loosen dirt, oil and natural sebum on the skin is to use the heat from steam, which is gentle and warming. You can add a visual + medicinal booster to your steam by adding skin safe flowers, herbs and spices!
To use: add half the bag to a heat safe bowl of boiling water, then place your head over the steam and inhale. Add more hot water if needed. You can strain the water and use it as a face rinse if you want!
Ingredients: Lavender, Chamomile, Calendula, Comfrey and Basil
*see below for herb benefits
*statements of medicinal value are not FDA approved of course - also, if you have allergies to any plants or herbs, take a pinch in hot water and do a patch test! This blend contains only gentle herbs - but you never know!!

Lavender: Calming, cooling, soothing to skin and helps mitigate irritation during cleansing, exfoliating or masking.
Basil: anti-bacterial, helps kill acne bacteria
Chamomile: Soothing, brightening, helps to soften skin for easy cleansing and extractions.
Calendula: gently healing, promotes collagen + skin cell renewal
