With the help of steam, the soothing properties of herbs are extracted into the air and breathed in. This blend of herbs and oils cleanses, hydrates skin, while improving circulation. As the surface of the skin is warmed, impurities and buildup are released from pores. This blend is also a gentle, therapeutic remedy to help relieve congestion and loosen muscles and phlegm in throat. It can also relieve discomfort from those who suffer from allergies. The combination of steam and plants connects you to your breath and helps to relax and soothe the body and mind.

* If you begin to feel uncomfortable or too hot during your steam, you may end the treatment or remove the towel and keep breathing deeply over the bowl.
* If you have sensitive or allergy-prone skin, you should always do a skin patch test before using any new herbal product.
* Facial steams are not appropriate for those with cystic acne, rosacea and eczema, as heat may irritate these conditions. For sensitive or damaged skin herbal steams can be irritating and should be avoided unless suggested by a health-care provider.
* If you have asthma or a heart condition, please consult your physician before doing facial steams.
