Botanical Facial Steam by Self Ceremony

The Botanical Facial Steam works by adding 1-2 tablespoons to a hot water to this floral mixture the concentrated herbs will release their healing properties through the steam it creates.

The warmth will open your pores, allowing your skin to fully receive the benefits the herbs have to offer. Once you have finished this ritual, is a great time to do a face mask or complete your skin care routine by adding your serum, oil or cream.

This self-care ritual that will bring calm and emotional comfort by making space to slow down and connect with your senses.

The Ritual

Find yourself a comfortable place to sit with a surface at a level you can place your bowl at without discomfort to your neck.

Place 1-2 tablespoons of your Botanical Facial Steam into a large heatproof bowl and cover with about 3 cups of boiling water.

Place your face about 10 to 12 inches (25-30 cm) away from the water. Create a tent by draping a towel over your head and over the bowl so that the steam doesn’t escape. Make sure you’re comfortable and that the steam isn’t too hot. You can occasionally open the towel if you need to take a breather. 
Be cautious:
  • Keep your face about 10 inches / 25 cm above the bowl to avoid injury from the steam. If it is too hot for you, lift the towel slightly to allow some cooler air to circulate.
  • If your skin is very sensitive, only steam for about 5 minutes. Do not use on broken skin.
  • Do not ingest.

Extra tips!
Because you won't want to get rid of your bowl of beautiful flower water:

⇢ Make a mask. We recommend maximizing the benefits of your infused botanical water by mixing it with a facial mask.

⇢ Add to your bath. Slowly pour your bowl into a warm bath and enjoy a soak in these beautifully nourishing flowers and aromas.

⇢ Make a cooling washcloth. Place them in a jar with a washcloth and let them soak in the fridge overnight. Gently lay the washcloth over your face - perfect for cooling down on a hot day or if your skin is too sensitive for the hot steam.

⇢ After applying a facial oil or moisturizer complete your skin care routine with a lymphatic massage with a Gua Sha tool.
