• Take 2 tablespoons of the herb mixture and place in a bowl big enough to hold 1 quart of boiling water. Cover the bowl of boiling water and herbs to keep the volatile oils contained and let steep for 5 minutes. If necessary, pull hair back and place a towel over your head. Uncover bowl and place face at least 10 inches above water, drape towel over head and bowl. Rest for 5-8 minutes. If it is too hot wait for it to cool down about 1-2 minutes. If you need to move away from the water for a moment, it's ok. Afterwards you may strain the herbs out of the remaining water, for use as a body splash or toner. Repeat as desired.
