Today I’m posting at Keeper of the Home with a how-to for a simple, rejuvenating facial steam with essential oils! Here’s an excerpt of the post:
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve enjoyed giving myself the occasional “spa night.” I would pick a night when I didn’t have any lingering chores–or competition for the bathroom–and set the scene for a relaxing, pampering experience. Spa night usually involved a bath with some special bath salts or sugar scrub I’d received as a birthday gift, plus an edible treat, a good book (usually an Agatha Christie mystery), and perhaps toenail painting afterwards.
I also liked to do a “facial” before soaking in the tub, although now I cringe to think what chemicals must’ve been in those little packets from the drugstore!
In the last couple of years I’ve strayed from the practice of spa night, so now it’s my goal to re-instate them! I’ve also learned a lot about using natural products, (and what skincare ingredients to avoid), so spa night looks a little different now. The relaxing bath is still a must, although now I’m more likely to make my own bath salts and sugar scrub (like this honey vanilla body polish).
For the facial, I’ll skip the store-bought masks and peels and use a simple, natural facial steam, instead!
