How to use:
Never steam dry, unprotected skin. Apply a layer of Nourish & Replenish Oil, Cow Fart Juice, or NO EVIL over your skin before leaning over steam.
Place 1oz (about a shotglass) of herbs in a large bowl and secure in a safe place. Pour about one quart of boiling water over the herbs and sit comfortably nearby. Lean over bowl (about 10 to 15 inches away) and use a towel to create a "tent around the steam". Inhale and enjoy!
CAUTION: Boiling water is VERY HOT and can BURN YOU! Do not get too close to the steam. Do not pour boiling water into a plastic bowl as it may melt and hurt you. Do not put boiling or very hot water directly on the skin!
While you enjoy your steam for ten to fifteen minutes, you can even give yourself a lovely facial massage.
Another fun idea is to let the steam bath cool and strain the plant pieces out of the water, pressing out as much of the "goodness" as you possibly can. You can then take this water and store it in a glass bottle (preferably with a spray top) in your refrigerator. This Herbal Infusion is now a lovely toner that will stay good for up to a week. (If it starts to smell funny before that, let it go. When in doubt, throw it out!)
The steamboat steamer rolls along through the seasons, grabbing the best of the available herbs while taking care to complement the changing needs of the body throughout the cycling year.
