Two recipes for face steam for teenagers (and everyone else): Calendula and lavender face steam, and calendula, rose and sage face steam

Calendula and lavender face steam

Something a little different today, not food but a floral face steam for my two teenagers! I have plenty of calendula and lavender in the garden so I picked some petals and put them in a bowl. Then you just need to add boiling water and enjoy a face steam. My kids loved it, and I am planning to dry some of the petals to keep for winter... just need a bit of sun though!!  (PS, the rose is just for fun.. but you could add rose petals too, try the next recipe).

Calendula, rose and sage face steam

This is also very aromatic: use calendula as the base since is it good for healing skin from acne, and add rose petals and sage flowers (which have a milder flavour that sage leaves). Also good to clear nose and mind!
