Relaxing BathA herbal bath is a relaxing moment in time for hectic lives. These herbal bath mixes are very simple to make. However, you will surely want to make them ahead of time. No one wants to be bothered getting the makings of a herbal bath ready in the mist of a headache. There are some different ways to do this, I'll explain them, and you can decide which is best for you.

  • Process 1: Simply make an extra strong herbal tea, then place the boiling hot tea directly into the bath tub. Careful to test the water before diving in!
  • Process 2: Gather dried herbs of your choice. Chamomile, lemon verbena, mint, peppermint, lavender and rosemary are good choices for the purpose of a herbal bath. Create your mixture. Cut two squares of cheesecloth. Now place the herbs in the middle, between the two layers. Stitch around the squares, creating a herb pillow. When you take your bath, simply toss the herbal pillow directly into the bath. Let it run under hot water and steep for 10 minutes. Simply make several, and have them ahead of time.
  • Process 3: Turn your bath into a herbal, salt bath. Take some Espom salt and mix a few drops of herbal oil into it. Next time you take a bath, throw a handful under the running water.
These are all effective herbal bath methods. Process 2 and 3 can even be made into gifts for loved ones. I know many people enjoy receiving handmade gifts. The cheesecloth pillows can be dresses up with ribbons. The herbal salt bath mix can be bottled into clear fancy bottles. Add a handmade name tag or ingredients, then attach an ribbon for a more festive look.
