Herbal Detoxifying Steam
Facial steaming helps to soften pores which aids in the release of buildup and helps to minimize the appearance of pores; while promoting circulation and the body's natural detoxification process. But this isn't just any facial steam. Our indulgent herbal blend, full of beautiful, colorful flowers and deeply purifying aromatic herbs works to soften and clear the skin while calming and soothing the soul.
How to Use
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. Inhale, breathe deep, soak in the soothing aroma, and enjoy a few moments of serenity.
Facial 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.
Pro tip: Get the most out of your steam by mixing the herbal water created by the steam with a clay mask

Tulsi // This sacred Ayurvedic herb is considered to be a goddess, mother medicine of nature, incarnated in plant form. While the plant looks similar to basil (and is also known as holy basil), it 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, that works wonders on 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.
