Hey bunnies! Today we’re going to make a vegan citrus facial steam. I LOVE facial steams. Not only are they relaxing but they do wonders for the skin. Warm steam helps to soften the surface skin to help wash away dirt and impurities. The steam also has the ability to soften white and blackheads making removal easier and more gentle on the skin.
The citrus blend used in this recipe will help with acne and aging skin. Its also acts as an anti-fungal, and and anti-inflammatory. In addition to that you can also get a great mood boost from this energizing concoction. I love to do a morning facial steam but I make sure I will be indoors most of the day. Most citrus is sensitive to the sun. So don’t use this facial steam if you plan to be at the beach the same day. Everything you need is listed below. Enjoy!
Vegan Citrus Facial Steam
3 cups distilled water
2 drops YL lemon essential oil
2 drops YL orange essential oil
2 drops YL grapefruit essential oil
2 drops YL lime essential oil
you can add some fresh citrus slices if you want as well
On a stovetop heat the water until it is hot but not boiling.
Pour the hot water into a glass bowl (or you can use the pot if you like) and add the essential oils.
Find somewhere comfortable to sit so you can place your head above the bowl. Do not place your face too close to the water. You don’t want to burn your skin.
Drape a large towel over your head and the bowl and steam for 5-7 minutes.
Use once per week.
