Find facials steamers, shower/bath bombs and foot soak blends here.
If you haven’t tried a facial steamer yet, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Steaming your face is a simple, effective way to cleanse and minimize facial pores, gently exfoliate dead skin cells (which reduces wrinkles), remove embedded make-up, pesky bacteria and environmental toxins. Guess what! While you have your pores open and cleansed, you can medicate them, too! The herbs used in the Dry formula stimulate the sebaceous glands so they will produce the sebum secretions necessary to keep your face moisturized. The herbs in the Oily to Normal formula contains calm the sebaceous glands, normalizing sebum secretions. Steamers come in a 2 oz cello bag.
Steaming is EASY! Here’s how it works:
- Once a week, add 2 tablespoons of the herbs in a stainless steel, glass, or enamel pan of 2 cups of boiling water. Simmer gently for 3-5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and cover with a lid. Allow herbs to brew for a few more minutes, then remove the lid.
- Place your face over the pot, tent the pan and your head with a large towel or sheet. Blow into the water, creating steam, as needed. Allow the steam to relax, cleanse and medicate your pores. Steam as long as you want, but 5-10 minutes is sufficient to open the pores.
- After steaming, wipe away the dirt and oil from the the surface of your skin with a clean dry washcloth, then splash warm water on your face and rinse with cool mineral water to close the pores. Pat dry.
- Steaming with a friend is always more fun.
Why not an aromatherapy shower or bath?
Effervescent shower/bath bombs are an appreciated aromatherapy gift or a nice self-pampering treat. They soften the water and your skin (promoting exfoliation) while releasing an aromatherapy experience. Shower/Bath Bombs are $4.00 each.
Who says you can’t treat your feet?
I like to give my hardworking feet an aromatherapy foot soak before bed, especially after a long day. Try it – you’ll love it. 4 oz jar is good for 4-5 soaks and cost $4.00 each.
