Description:
Great For All Skin Types (especially normal to dry, allergy-prone, sensitive, and mature).

This soothing, aromatic herbal steam is a must for optimal skin vibrancy and beauty, and the process of brewing and enjoying the steam is a soothing way to recharge and reconnect with nature. As the herbs and flowers rehydrate, recover their beautifully bold colors, and float to the surface, the warm, healing steam and floral aromas combine to create a calming, spiritually grounding ritual.

This fragrant infusion penetrates deep into pores to soothe, moisturize, and soften the skin. The carefully sourced herbs and flowers have been hand-selected for their nurturing, anti-inflammatory, and reparative properties. The blend includes Linden Flowers, Horsetail, Comfrey Leaves, and Cornflowers, all hand-harvested late in the growing season in Pacific Northwest, after the plants had reproduced, flowered, and been pollinated. These are combined with organic Calendula Flowers, soothing Chamomile, Marshmallow RootHelichrysum, and Puerh Tea specially selected from the best tea houses in Hangzhou, China. 

  • Color and Texture: The mixture includes a beautiful blend of dried herbs and flowers, including vibrant blue Cornflowers, sunny bright Calendula, and richly green Horsetail, which become even more boldly yellow-to-orange colored when reconstituted in hot water to form an infusion.
  • Scent: The calming scent combines the sweet, lightly floral fragrance of Linden Flowers, the soothing scent of Chamomile, and the honey-pollen fragrance of Calendula Flowers.

Handcrafted in the USA.

Size:
2.11 oz./ 60 grams.

Directions:
Place a generous handful of the herbal blend (4 to 5 tablespoons) in a heatproof bowl (a dedicated stainless steel pot will allow the tea to remain hot longer than a ceramic bowl). Prepare a towel to cover your head during the steam session and wash your face, removing all makeup. Boil fresh, filtered water and pour 1 to 2 cups over the herbs to make a strong, fragrant infusion.

Lean over the bowl to caress your face with the pleasantly hot (not scorching) steam. Cover your head with a towel to allow as little of the heat to escape as possible. The hot steam will help open the skin pores and the herbs will penetrate deeper to aid purifying, healing, and moisturizing. Steam your face for 15 to 30 minutes (a longer session is much more beneficial; reheat the tea if needed halfway through the session).

Follow with a face mask of your choice or a deep-acting serum, such as Ferns and Moss Face Serum. Strain the herbs and reserve the infusion in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Warm it and use as a final hair rinse for all hair types, or add it to a bath for a foot soak.

Store away from direct light exposure to protect the fragile botanicals within.
