For deep-cleansing the skin, have a facial sauna once or twice a week. Add few drops of desired essential oil(s) in
a bowl of moderate hot water (about 38°C).
Cover your head with a towel and lean over the bowl so that the
towel encloses both the head and the bowl. Always close your eyes and maintain a safe distance.
The essential oils in the steam will get to work on the skin. The effect is twofold as the essences in vapour form are absorbed through the delicate membranes of the nasal passages as well. Their action is thus both internal and external.
