History: Steaming is an ancient remedy that facilitates the release of impurities, and delivers vital nutrients to the skin.
Why steam: Steaming draws out impurities in the skin, opens the pores, deeply hydrates and detoxifies. Steaming stimulates blood circulation, which increases oxygen and nutrients to the skin, as well as softens and moisturizes. This gives your skin a rosier, more youthful look.
USE: Pour 4 cups of boiled water into a large bowl, use a handful of the herbs, let it steep and cool for a few minutes. Cover head with a large towel to create a tent over the bowl., make sure your head is 8" away from the hot water. Stay under the tent and breathe deeply for 10-15 minutes.
