Facial Steam Bath

A Spa Treatment Your Face Will Love!

Facial Steam Bath Instructions & Essential oil tips for all skin types.  The benefits of a steam facial is to open your pores for a deep clean.  It eliminates toxin, loosens dead skin cells, hydrates and soften your skin like nothing else! 

Treat yourself to one of these essential oil steam facials recipes regularly (once a week or monthly at the very least) to maintain a youthful, healthy complexion. 

For added benefit, see the essential oil recommendations below.   (I even tossed one in for sinus issues!)


Tie your hair back before you start, if your hair is too short, use a headband to keep it off your face.

Pour boiling water into a glass or ceramic bowl then add the essential oils of choice.  (see below)

Place a towel over your head as you lean over the steaming bowl, allow the towel to drape around the bowl creating a closure.  Close your eyes and position yourself to where you are getting the benefits without it being to uncomfortable and enjoy the wonderful vapors!

If you need to, take a quick break after a couple minutes.  It would be best to return for a couple more before calling it quits.  (2-6 minutes)

When finished, wash your face to remove the toxins and rinse with cool water.   Pat dry.  If you want you can put on a light moisturizer or just tap some serum around your eyes.

You can also add a handful of fresh or dried herbs or rose petals to your water if you don't have any essential oils.  Think Mint or Lavender for oily skin.  Comfrey, Chamomile or Calendula for sensitive skin.  Licorice root is a great choice for all skin types, great for detoxing your skin.  To simply enjoy your facial steam bath, think orange blossoms, lemon peels, combine a few choices, it's your steam facial.
