I love…Rosemary! She is…

 

My faces go to!

When this steamy HOT weather gets my spirit’s and face down. I reach for my rosemary plant outside my office and or house door.photo Rosemary

I put on a pot of hot water as if I am making a pot of pasta.

Next I bring it to a boil.

I pull of a few pieces of rosemary and add a cut up a few lemon slices too.

Add it to the hot pot of water.

Let the two dance together in the water that has boiled.

Shut off the pot. Place a small kitchen towel over your head and let the steam rise to meet your face. DO NOT place face close to water. All you want is the steam to rise and detox your pores,loosen up dead skin cells and clear out your nasal passages.

Follow with a mud mask,rinse and moisturize.Enjoy!

This combination makes an aromatic delightful scent your face and nasal passages will love! My face is happy again.

Have fun making your own facial steam baths without going to the spa. Do share with me your own steamy facial concoctions!!!

  • Bathe in bubbles and the scent of some fresh rose petals to stress less.
  • Place eucalyptus branches in your shower and steam your way to breathing better from allergies.
  • Add edible flowers to a salad. and make your day more beautiful and even better.
