You can use fresh ingredients if you will be using the steam within a day or two, otherwise use dried.

1/4 cup rose petals

1/4 cup rosemary leaves

1/4 cup fennel seeds

1/2 tsp peppermint leaves

Bring about 3 cups of water to a simmer.  Add 1/4 cup of the herbs, turn off the heat, cover pan and steep a few minutes.  Remove lid and hold your face about six inches over the pan.  Drape a towel over your head and the pan to form a tent that will hold in the steam.  Steam up to ten minutes, taking breaks if necessary to cool off.  Then moisturize right away, while skin is still damp.
