Aromatherapy Facial Sauna for Dry Skin

This is a simplified version of an herbal facial sauna. Essential oils have a wonderful fragrance and are beneficial for your skin.

1-1/2 quarts water
3 drops chamomile or Sandalwood or rose essential oil

1. Pour boiling water into a large, heatproof bowl. Add essential oil.

2. Make a towel tent over your head and the bowl with a large towel to capture the steam. Lift the towel as necessary to reg­ulate the temperature, and take care to not burn yourself with the steam. Stay under the towel for 10 minutes to allow the steam to cleanse your pores.

3. Rinse your face with tepid water, and follow with a gentle facial scrub and a facial mask if desired.
