This herbal facial blend is a perfect way to enjoy the healing benefits of plants with properties soothing to both the skin + spirit. Scoop 2 TBSP into a bowl, pour 4-6 cups of hot, steaming water over the botanicals and stir. Sit down at a table in front of the bowl and let it cool for a few moments. Drape a large towel over your head catching the rising steam as it bathes your face for 10 minutes. Then wash, rinse, and apply your favorite toner.
