The Ritual of Steaming:
Place a generous handful of Through the Flowers in a heat-proof bowl. Prepare a towel to cover your head during the steam session and begin with clean skin. 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. 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 to half an hour 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.
After steaming; strain the herbs and reserve the infusion in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Warm it and and use as a final hair rinse for all hair types or add the water to your bath. Alternatively, you can mix a handful of the dried flowers with sea or epsom salts and add to bath water.
So change your perspective by dropping a handful of flowers into a bowl and steaming. When you are ready to face the world you'll be more inclined to explore it ''through the flowers''.
