Rose Potion Facial
A good facial uses steam to unclog pores, loosen impurities, and eliminate blackheads and whiteheads. Just make sure the water is not too hot, or you risk burning your face. This Rose Potion Facial also comes from Sharon Mathieu at Soothe Your Senses.
We recommend using organic rose petals to avoid exposure to pesticides and chemical sprays. You may purchase organic flowers and petals at Organic Bouquet.
Ingredients and Supplies
1 bowl
1 bath towel
1 spray bottle
1 cup fresh rose petals
1 gallon almost-boiling water
Directions
1. Place rose petals in the bowl.
2. Pour the water over them.
3. Cover your head with the towel.
4. Lean over the bowl to absorb vapors.
5. Steam your skin for approximately 15 minutes. Be sure to keep your face at least 12 inches away from the water.
6. Pat your face dry.
7. Apply a light moisturizer of your choice.
8. Allow the rose-infused water to cool, and pour it into a spray bottle.
“You can use the leftover mist to spray the rest of your body or as a room spray,” Mathieu says.
