It’s about that time of winter when we long for the thaw of spring or just more daylight. Give yourself an aroma therapeutic spa treatment at home to erase the winter doldrums.

When it’s cold outside, you can heat things up with a fragrant herbal facial steam. It will benefit your skin and your mood with uplifting scents floating in the air. Maijan Beauty Products has three varieties of herbal facial steamers for different skin types., The herbs are sulfate and paraben free. Simply put two tablespoons of herbs in a bowl with four cups of boiling water. Place a towel over your head over the bowl and steam for 5-15 minutes.

Maijan Nourish Healing Herbal Facial Steam is formulated for dry skin with organic Rose Petals, Rosemary Leaves, Peppermint Leaves, Fennel Seeds and Geranium Oil. After steaming, your skin will be moist and hydrated.

Maijan Radiance Healing Herbal Facial Steam for oily skin has organic Chamomile, Lemongrass, Lavender, Rosemary and Lavender Oil.

Maijan Clarify Healing Herbal Facial Steam is especially for acne prone skin, and has organic Chamomile, Rosemary, Lavender, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus and Rosemary oil.

After steaming your face and getting a dose of aromatherapy, spritz with Susan Ciminelli Marine Lotion formulated with Algae Oil and essential oils of Cypress, Juniper, Marjoram, Sassafras and Vetiver. This lotion has a refreshing scent and is great for dry skin all over the face and body. It is even good for cellulite.
