“Bathe in rosemary to soothe skin and sinuses

2885989_blogI got lots of inspiration from my mom. She was a model as a young woman, so she had lots of beauty rituals. She would boil a cup of chamomile flowers and a cup of dried rosemary every night for an hour on the stove. Then she would run a bath and mix the concentration into her bath water and rinse her hair in it. She said it was soothing for sensitive skin and detoxing for the skin and respiratory system. I did it for my son’s sensitive skin every day his whole first year. And when he is sick, that bath water clears out a stuffy nose like magic! Rosemary water is also good for a dry, itchy scalp and psoriasis.” —Joanna Vargas of Joanna Vargas Skincare
