Steam is Good

When I get the house to myself I love to pamper my skin. It's my way of stickin' it to the Men of my household. Steaming your face is a great way to unclog pores and pamper yourself with a little aromatherapy too! I simply take a small handful of herbs bring to boil then let simmer. Take the pot off the stove place on counter or table (with a trivet underneath). Get out a towel to put over your head and pot. Pull your hair back, drape the towel over your head and pot and let the steam do it's best. Breath deeply and relax (stay with the steam for about 5 minutes). When your done, make sure to rinse off your skin with cool water or use a little witch hazel.

Rosemary
Great for colds and the flu. When your done with the steaming. Strain the water into a bottle. And use it as a hair rinse. Great for lightening blonde hair and a good tonic for dandruff.

Mint
Great for easing nasal congestion

Lavendar
Known for it's aromatherapy properties, Lavendar facial steams is a great way to reduce stress and nervous exhaustion. Also great for softening skin

Chamomile
Great for sensitive skin. Also wonderful for hay fever.

Plantain
A weed found on lawns, very high in vitamin K, great for spider veins. Do not use if you're on Cumodin or any other blood thinners.

Sage & Mint
Helps to improve circulation to skin. ****NOTE: Sage contains thujone which can trigger fits in epileptics. So epileptics should avoid it.
