Peace is both relaxing and uplifting thanks to a beautiful, floral blend that helps to battle the blues. An examination of the ingredients also reveals that:
- Chamomile softens skin, reduces puffiness, and gently moisturizes
- Lemon balm (a.k.a melissa) is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-oxidant
- Borage heals dry/damaged skin
- Lavender is mildly antibacterial in ways that are especially beneficial for oily skin, but suitable for use with other skin types
- Rose gently moisturizes and softens skin
Combined, this variety of flowers and herbs does a little of everything to support clean, glowing skin for all skin types. I asked Mara for her thoughts on using this tea as a herbal facial steam for all skin types and, to my delight, she agreed that it would be a great way to enjoy this blend.
Each tin contains 15 g / approx 8 applications.
