Botanical Facial Steam
A relaxing facial steam to use at home using a selection of Rose and Calendula petals mixed with Lavender and Chamomile buds. This will cleanse the skin, remove impurities and promote circulation.
Place a small handful of petals in a basin and cover with boiling water. Drape a towel over your head and place your face near the bowl being careful not to touch the bowl or water as it will be very hot. Allow the towel to cover the bowl to trap the steam. Steam your face for 5-10 minutes. Always steam with a clean face. Apply moisturiser afterwards. Then compost petals or scatter them around your garden.
