Face Steamer Teas

Top-tier teas to steam with during cold and flu season!

It's that lovely time of the year again! Everyone is making new resolutions. The year is starting anew, and you've just realized your holiday celebrations have brought a flu and cold front to your door. Stuffy and runny noses are rampant throughout the land, and congestion is king!

Luckily, Catalyst Tea Company has a collection of teas that could help break up some of that nasty lingering congestion and set you to rights in no time.

Rose Sensation

Not only are rose petals great for the skin, but they are also a good source of preventive cell damage antioxidants. Increasing our body's moisture levels by keeping everything well-lubricated during a cold can help ease congestion greatly. Rose is an incredible source of natural moisture, and it will make your face steam a pleasantly fragrant experience.

A Fresh Breath

Another highly moisturizing herb that can be utilized in a face steam is calendula You can also add peppermint to help open the airways. During my most recent cold stint, I used a simple mixture of rose petals and mint leaves to steam my face with.

If I had been going for a simple spa experience I would have thrown a towel over my head as soon as the boiling water was added to the herbs in the bowl. However, when steaming for congestion, you'll want to wait for the water to cool down a bit, as boiling hot water can do more damage than good in that state.

Waiting until the mixture is no longer visibly steaming as it is in the photo below is a good rule of thumb.

Tea Time

For a congestion-relieving face steam, Catalyst Tea Company suggests Rose Sensation and our Inner Glow herbal blend. Or you can mix and match your own special blends with our Little Box of Magic herbal tea kit.
