One of my favorite, easiest DIYs to do is a facial steam. Steams are a great way to open up your pores and prep your skin for whatever treatment is coming after it. I often find myself sticking my head right over the kettle while I’m boiling water for tea (not too close though!) A little more recently, I started making facial steams with my favorite essential oils or fresh floral buds. Adding the buds absolutely makes my steam feel that much more luxurious, but I also love that the fresh essences open up to create a beautiful aroma while my skin soaks it in.
What You’ll Need
Rose buds (fresh from a bouquet or available here)
Lavender buds (fresh or here)
Chamomile buds (fresh or here)
A hand towel
Simply boil your water. Once boiling, pour into a heat-safe bowl and sprinkle in your fresh buds. Take your towel and hold over your face while you safely edge your head to the bowl. Use the towel to keep the steam on your face for 3 to 5 minutes. Do not dry face, but let the steam soak into your pores. Follow up with remaining skin treatments.
Thinking about trying this steam, or personalizing your own? There are so many variations to make with a plethora of herbs, flowers and essential oils. Many of my DIYs are highly customizable depending on what skin concerns you’re looking to address. The essence of plants, aka “plant magic,” can definitely be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve put together an easy reference guide including an alphabetical listing of my favorite skin plants and their specific benefits for you! The Boheaux Plant Magic Cheat Sheet will be immediately available for download when you sign up for my newsletter.This is my number one reference to use while I’m concocting any of my plant potions and DIYs and I can’t wait to share it with you as you create Boheaux DIYs with me!
