Treat yourself to the ultimate home spa experience and harness the incredible benefits of flowers, herbs and essential oils with a College Green facial steam.
Each College Green facial steam is a carefully blended mix of dried herbs and flowers, infused with a blend of pure essential oils.
A facial steam gives the same benefits to your face as a steam room does to your body: the warm steam loosens the build up of dead skin cells, trapped sebum, dirt and impurities that clog pores and cause blemishes.
Steaming causes the blood vessels in your face to dilate, boosting a flow of oxygenated blood and resulting in a natural, healthy glow.
And if you’re suffering from a cold or sinus infection, steam inhalation is one of the most widely used home remedies to sooth and open the nasal passages.
Each College Green facial steam is infused with essential oils which not only smell fantastic, but bring their own benefits to both your skin and your wellbeing, whether you want to relax, wind down, get a boost of energy or clear a stuffy nose.
Choose one to suit your skin type, or your mood:
Relaxing facial steam with dried lavender and calendula petals and lavender essential oil
Hydrating facial steam with dried rose and hibiscus petals, rose geranium and palmarosa essential oils
Calming facial steam with dried jasmine, chamomile & hops, and chamomile, sandalwood, lavender & sweet orange essential oils

Breathe Easy facial steam with dried orange, star anise, black pepper & hops and peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary and black pepper essential oils.
How to use a College Green facial steam
Half fill a bowl with very hot water, ideally just boiled (but take care!)
Sprinkle approx 1 tablespoon of College Green facial steam into the bowl. If you have a sample pack use it all; full packs contain enough for 2-4 steams.
Sit comfortably with your face over the bowl and cover your head and the bowl with a towel.
Breath slowly and deeply while the scented steam gently loosens dead skin cells, helps your nasal passages to open and boosts the flow of oxygen to your face.
When the water cools wipe the moisture from your face - now is the ideal time to apply serum or moisturiser.
The water can be used to water house or garden plants.
Breathwork while steaming your face
While you're steaming your face why not use the time to practice conscious breathwork?
Research shows that making adjustments to the way we breathe can have a positive effect on our overall health and wellbeing.
Consciously controlling our breath is a type of meditation, with the same benefits of calming the nervous system and bringing a sense of peace and calm.
Each College Green facial steam comes with instructions for a tried and tested guided breathwork technique.
10g packs contain enough botanicals for 2-4 facial steams. Once the water has cooled add the botanicals to your compost heap and use the water on your plants.
