The Ritual of Steaming:
Facial steams are floral meditations for the face. They are not only a luxury but a must. These soothing steams regenerate skin and spirit, decongesting and detoxing both body and mind. Imagine a close-up interaction with the flowers and leaves, allowing a re-connect to the nature spirits residing within these medicinal plants.

How to Steam
Start with clean skin and prepare a towel to cover your head during the steam session. Place a generous handful of Through the Flowers in a heat-proof bowl and place on a heat-safe surface.
Boil fresh, filtered water and pour 1 to 2 cups over the herbs and flowers to make a strong, fragrant infusion. Let set 1-2 minutes to allow the flowers to open.
Lean over the bowl to steam your face with the pleasantly hot (not scorching) steam, tenting your head and the bowl with a towel.
The hot steam will help open the skin's pores and the herbs will penetrate deeper to aid purifying, healing, and moisturizing. Guidelines for length of steam vary. If it has been some time since your last steam begin with 3-5 minutes once per week. Steaming your face for 15 minutes is said to be more beneficial. Use your intuition and use this time to relax and renew. Follow with a No. 2 facial mist and No. 3 Serum.
Available in a resealable plastic pouch good for 10 steams.
Please use awareness when working with hot liquids, protect table surface, and keep a safe distance from the steam.
