Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Place 1-2 TBSP of the herbal blend in a large bowl. Pour steaming water over the herbs. Position face over the bowl and cover with a towel to seal in the herbal steam. Remain over steam with eyes closed for 10-15 minutes. Take a deep breath and enjoy this moment of serenity! For best results, follow with a mask.

Tip: Get the most out of your steam by mixing the herbal water created by the steam with a clay mask and/or adding it to bath water.

Steaming is not just about skin care, it is also about self-care. Before steaming, take a moment to prepare your space for comfort. Dress in some comfy clothes, drink plenty of water, and turn off your phone. Set up the steam in a comfortable place and turn on relaxing music if you wish. Settle into the steam and take this moment, while the steam is working, to decompress and be in the moment. Take a few deep breaths, and thank yourself for taking the time to take care of you.
Cornflowers // Vibrant blue flowers that can have soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Calendula // A skin savior, this yellow flower has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is a cooling herb, used to support healthy skin and heal minor wounds.

Rose Petals // Rose petals are synonymous with love, and when found in skincare products with anti-aging. You might be wondering, is rose worth all the hype? A Korean study recently found that rose petals actually help block age-causing enzyme activity and also helps your skin absorb vitamin C (a great anti-aging ingredient itself). So go ahead, indulge in a little rose!

Tulsi // Tulsi is a sacred Ayuverdic herb that is considered to be a goddess, mother medicine of nature, incarnated in plant form. The plant looks similar to common basil, but has an intoxicating aroma that resembles a blend of cinnamon, peppermint, clove, basil, and licorice. It is considered to be a balancing and grounding herb, good for many types of ailments. The essential oil found in the leaves has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and adaptogenic properties (both stimulating or sedative, depending on what your body needs).

Peppermint // Peppermint has a high menthol content, which contributes to its cooling effect. It is a stimulant, increases circulation, has anti-inflammatory properties and clears energy.

Lemon Verbena // Leaves that have a strong lemon scent due to its citral and geraniol content. Supports healthy skin flora and can help tone, firm and freshen a complexion. The aroma is relaxing to the body and mind.

Great Product! Relaxing.

Bought this for a friend and she loves it. Clears her head and skin. Also, uses the flowers in her bath. Going to purchase for myself.

For A Relaxing Facial

I had never done a facial steam before and after trying this I wish I had tried it sooner! It is so relaxing and you really feel as if your pores are getting a good clean. It also cleared my sinuses. If you do a mask immediately following it seems much more effective. This has become part of my weekly ritual. I really like to do it after an intense workout when I need a good cleanse :) I'm obsessed!

AMAZING! love it!

This was my first ever time buying a facial steam although I have been interested in them for a while. I decided to buy this one because I am already in LOVE with Apoterra skincare, they are an AMAZING brand and I have acne and loads of congested pores. I used the Apoterra charcoal mask after and saw AMAZING results. I have used the mask on its own a couple times, but using the steam before hand really made a difference. My skin felt way cleaner and purified and I could see some of my impurities were nearly gone. I also felt really relaxed and calm which is so important when you have a busy lifestyle. I can not wait to use this again!
