Cool to a comfortable temperature; then drape a towel over your head, ensuring little steam escapes. Spend 10-15 minutes in meditation while enjoying this therapeutic, herbal aromatherapy. Afterwards, rinse your face with water & pat dry with a clean cloth.
Don't dispose of the water, just yet.
Some suggestions for use of the botanical water:
- Follow facial steam with a clay mask from our Down 2 Earth Collection. Mix your mask with the herbal-infused water left over from your steam for added beauty benefits.
- Water may also be reheated or cooled to make compress, or reheated & used as a botanical bath tea.
