Create an intentional space. Turn off your phone and turn on some relaxing music. You’ll need about 15 minutes for this Self Ceremony. Please allow yourself this time. We'll include a Love Note, a self-love reminder to encourage you to this practice.
Find yourself a comfortable place to sit with a surface at a level you can place your bowl at without discomfort to your neck.
Place 1-2 tablespoons of your Botanical Facial Steam into a large heatproof bowl and cover with about 3 cups of boiling water.
Place your face about 10 to 12 inches (25-30 cm) away from the water. Create a tent by draping a towel over your head and over the bowl so that the steam doesn’t escape. Make sure you’re comfortable and that the steam isn’t too hot. You can occasionally open the towel if you need to take a breather.
Close your eyes, take a long, deep breath and enjoy this relaxing moment. Notice the different aromas ~ the feeling of the steam nourishing your skin and melting away the tension ~ the shapes of the flowers as they open up to form a beautifully abstract painting, in the water. Keep watching your breath and the flowers for about 10 - 15 minutes.
When you have finished with your steam your pores will be open and ready to deeply absorb extra nourishment. This is a great time to do a face mask or complete your skin care routine by adding your serum, oil or cream.
Because you won't want to get rid of your bowl of beautiful flower water:
⇢ Make a mask. We recommend maximizing the benefits of your infused botanical water by mixing it with a facial mask.
⇢ Add to your bath. Slowly pour your bowl into a warm bath and enjoy a soak in these beautifully nourishing flowers and aromas.
⇢ Make a cooling washcloth. Place them in a jar with a washcloth and let them soak in the fridge overnight. Gently lay the washcloth over your face - perfect for cooling down on a hot day or if your skin is too sensitive for the hot steam.
⇢ After applying a facial oil or moisturizer complete your skin care routine with a lymphatic massage with a Gua Sha tool or Crystal Roller.
Keep your face about 10 inches / 25 cm above the bowl to avoid injury from the steam. If it is too hot for you, lift the towel slightly to allow some cooler air to circulate.
If your skin is very sensitive, only steam for about 5 minutes. Do not use on broken skin.
Do not ingest.
