Parsley Facial Steam
Parsley is a great herb for this steam due to it's wonderful benefits for the skin, and availability- you can always find fresh parley in the produce section. I grow my own outside, but live in a climate where that works year-round. If you don't, try growing parsley in an indoor window herb box.
Steams are a wonderful way to get a spa like treatment at home, plus they are super easy. If you can boil water, you can handle making your own facial steam.
~Boil a kettle of water
~rinse herbs if necessary and lay on dish towel
~Select a large, shallow bowl
~break herbs in to bowl
