Floral Steam For Skin and Heart Rejuvenation
Create a heart-awakening sensory experience for your entire being with a simple floral steam. This facial steam awakens and softens the skin, enhancing its ability to soak in serums and oils. It’s also great way to prepare your skin before treating it to a mask. Feel free to substitute other flowers and herbs for the ones below—calendula and chamomile would be beautiful additions to your steam.
Floral Face Steam Ritual
Here's what you'll need:
- ¼ cup dried lavender
- ¼ cup dried rose petals
- 2 ½ cups boiling water
- Heatproof glass bowl
- Two towels—One should be large enough to place the bowl on; the other should be large enough to drape over your head and the bowl to trap in the steam.
Place the bowl on a towel somewhere where you can lean over it and relax. I like to use my kitchen table. Place the dried flowers in the bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Lean over the bowl. Don’t get too close right away as the steam can be hot. Drape the towel over your head, trapping in the fragrant steam. Allow the steam to soothe and soften both your skin and your soul for 10–15 minutes. Refresh your skin by spritzing it liberally with rose toner. Then, apply a mask or your favourite Forget Beauty products.
