Herbal Facial Steam
Slow North's herbalist-formulated facial steam is a perfect way to enjoy the soothing benefits of plants with properties calming to both the skin and spirit. It's made with marshmallow root, known for calming inflamed skin; lavender, a relaxing, calming, and uplifting herb; raspberry leaf, which has astringent properties known for tightening the top layers of the skin; peppermint leaf to help unclog pores and soothe the skin; and calendula, which contains antioxidants and carotenoids, making it ideal for skin-soothing recipes.
To use: scoop 2 tbs of herbs into a large bowl. Pour 4-6 cups of hot, steaming water over the botanicals and stir. Sit down at a table in front of the bowl and let it cool for a few moments, then drape a large towel over your head, catching the rising steam as it bathes your face for 10 minutes. Wash, rinse, and apply your favorite toner. Repeat weekly.
Packaged in a glass jar w/ metal lid. Makes 8+ facial steams.
