Herbal Steam- Purifying
1.5 oz / 42 g
With the help of steam, the soothing properties of herbs are extracted into the air and breathed in. This blend of herbs and oils cleanses, hydrates and improves circulation. As the surface of the skin is warmed, impurities and buildup are released from pores. At the same time, perspiration increases and improves flood flow. Tired skin is revived and supports absorption of moisture while increasing permeability and suppleness. The combination of steam, plants and oils connects you to your breath and helps to relax and soothe the body and mind.
