Renew + Refresh Facial Steam


Winter is such a tough culprit on our skin. During a time of year when your skin is often congested and dry, a facial steam can be a beautiful way of allowing your skin the breath and moisture it craves while drawing out impurities and toxins. While you can use pure hot water, the addition of dried herbs and flowers increases nourishment and soothes tired, stressed out skin. This blend is also wonderful for the senses.
