- Steam face and allow vapors to accumulate for 10 minutes.
- Pat dry.
Well, I didn't follow this recipe as written. My DH had a head cold at the time, and this recipe got me thinking, hmmm. So, instead of using the lavender oil, I used peppermint oil, and we didn't use this for the purpose of clearing up oily skin, but to try to clear a stuffy head. Believe it or not, he said it did help clear up his head, and even his scratchy throat felt better. DH thanks you!
Mmmmmm! I love the smell of the oil(I have used jasmine essential oil as a substitute). I'm feeling so relaxed! Thanks for the recipe!!
