Herbal Facial Spa Mix Recipe

Herbal Facial Spa Mix Recipe
Facial Spas or herbal steams are an easy way to open pores and leave the skin feeling refreshed. This mix also makes a lovely gift when tied in a pretty package. Try using different colors of rose petals in your mix for the fancy effect. If you are interested in other Herbal Steam/Facial Spa recipes, see the Remedies section. This is when organic ingredients are truly best. Pesticides reside on the surface of plants which would transfer to the steam, so avoid non-organic herbs all around and especially if you’re immune system is compromised by illness, stress, or allergies. For the procedure for doing an herbal steam, see The Practical Herbalist Herbal How To section.

Ingredients

Equipment

  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 spoon
  • a resealable 2 quart container
  • a label

Procedure

  1. Pour the herbs into the mixing bowl and gently stir with a spoon. Try not to break up the plant parts since this will release the essential oils.
  2. Pour the mix into a resealable container.
  3. Label the container with the name of the mix, ingredients and date mixed.

Storage and Use

Store your Herbal Facial Spa Mix in a cool dark place. If fresh ingredients are used, the mixture must be used immediately to prevent spoilage.
