Place a generous handful of the herbs (4 to 5 tablespoons) in a heatproof nonreactive bowl (a stainless steel pot will allow the tea to remain hot longer than a ceramic bowl). Prepare a towel to cover your head during the steam session and wash your face, removing all makeup. Pour 1 to 2 cups freshly boiled water over the herbs to make a strong infusion. Lean over the bowl to caress your face with the pleasantly hot (not scorching) steam. Cover your head with a towel to allow as little of the heat to escape as possible. The hot steam will help open the skin's pores and the herbs will penetrate deeper to aid purifying, healing, and moisturizing. Steam your face for 15 to 30 minutes (a longer session is much more beneficial; reheat the tea if needed halfway through the session).
Follow with a face mask of your choice or a deep-acting serum, such as Ferns and Moss Face Serum. Strain the herbs and refrigerate the infusion for up to 2 days. Warm it and use as a face mist, facial compress, or hair rinse for all hair types, or add it to your bath. Store away from direct light exposure to protect the fragile botanicals within.
