How to: Calm Steam Face Tea


This is simple, fun, inexpensive, and ridiculously easy to make.

And it's beneficial for the skin.

Not only is a face tea a perfect gift or giveaway, if you package it up a little fancy (check the glass tube up there), it's also a bit of eye candy.

That's just got to be a win win win.


So Easy

Face tea is made by combining a selection of dried herbs and plants. You can create a blend to soothe, calm, energize, cleanse, relax - the possibilities are pretty limitless.

Today, I'm going to show you how I put together a blend labelled 'Calm Steam'. This particular combination is soothing, relaxing and cleansing.

There's no added scent, no extras of any kind - just a few simple ingredients.

Method

For this calming face tea, I have combined 5 elements:




Witch hazel
Rosebuds
Lavender
Cornflower
Mallow

You can, of course, create any combination you like. Try to choose herbs that will work in synergy and provide a lovely scent during use.



 Place your dried herbs in a bowl.

Package
Rejoice!

Have fun!

Lovely ! You have the most beautiful presentations. I'm a visual person, so I appreciate how gorgeous you make your products look. I was making face tea back when I was teenager suffering from acne. However what I made was a poor representation of a face tea. I read in a magazine how streaming your face could open up your pores. I would throw in whatever my mother had in her cabinets (herbs & spices) because at the time, I figured It couldn't hurt. My tea consisted of pepper, basil and parsley. It looked and smelt more like soup ! ��

What a great idea! I've been wondering how I could use empty glass tubes I got left from vanilla beans, and now I know it! :D Thanks, Lise!

What a lovely idea! The simpler, the better. Beautiful plants, beautiful presentation, amazing properties... Just a win-win situation ;)

@Signe -- this is not from a vanilla pod - it's somewhat bigger - but that idea does sound perfect for a single use gift!

@Maria - thank you for your always thoughtful and pleasant comments :)
