PERFORMING STIMULATING SPICE FACIAL STEAM TREATMENT:
Step 1: Boil filtered water in a vessel & bring it to full boil. Face steamer can also be used to boil water.
Step 2: Wash face properly & remove make-up or dirt with Kiyomeru – The Ancient Face Wash, and pat dry the face.
Step 3: Add 2-3 teaspoons of stimulating spice blend to the boiled water & cover the vessel for 5 minutes until the tiny essential oil molecules are infused in water. Tie hair back & sit comfortably to create a steam tent over the head using a light towel. Make sure there is no passage for the steam to leak out. Rest head nearly 2-3 above the stimulating spice vapors & let the spicy aromatic blend seep deeper into the skin to cleanse & purify pores for 5-10 minutes maximum. Breathe deep from nose to let the senses open up as the steam is inhaled deeper.
Step 4: Take a clean towel & pat the face dry. Apply ice in circular motion to close the pores.
USEFUL TIP: Strain the spice essence water after steaming & store in a glass bottle in the refrigerator as a healing face tonic. Can be used for upto 2 days for a fresh skin splash daily. The healing aromatic water can also be added to the Luxurious Clay Facial Masque for a complete skin detox treatment. In case of dry skin, slather on a thin layer of organic coconut oil on the clean face before beginning steaming. The hot aromatic spice vapors help seep moisture from the coconut oil to moisturize the pores deep within.
CAUTION: Keep a good distance between the steam vessel & face to avoid burning face with intense steam.

‘Swedanam’ is an Ayurveda concept meaning ‘to sweat & detoxify’. In Sanskrit ‘Sweda’ refers to ‘internal body toxins that are a by-product of meda or fat tissue & must be eliminated through sweat’. Swedanam is the process of inducing sweat with the use of specific herbs and spices to clarify & detoxify skin from within. The use of herbs & spices stimulates the oxygen-flow in the body & herbal vapors activate sweating. With the sweat flowing out, the toxins accumulated in the layers of skin tissues flow-out purifying the skin & body system. ‘Ekasweda’ is the Sanskrit term to perform Swedanam to one local area of the body. This facial steam blend is inspired by the Ekasweda concept where skin is exposed to stimulating vapors from spices that activate lymphatic system to purge out toxins, making skin breathe & glow.
