Herbal bath!

Herbal bath has been around for centuries. Depending on the herbs used, the herbal bath was designed to soothe or tone muscles, relaxation of the mind or for plainly aesthetic reasons. There are a number of herbs that you can use for your herbal bath. Combining bath water with juice of herbs can be a heavenly experience. Using several herbs for your herbal bath can produce various effects.

There are basically two methods to use when you want to have herbal bath. One method is to mix dried herbs, tie them up in a square cloth of about 5×5 inches. The bath which contains the dried herbs was then hung over the hot water faucet allowing the water to pass through it. The bag can also be put into the tub next to your body. Another method of using herbal bath teas is to summer the herbs for 5 minutes, steep them for 10 minutes and then pour the mixture into the bath tub through a strainer. Often this method is preferred than the first because the ‘tea’ mixture used is stronger. And the fragrance from simmering the tea is an added bonus. You can add essential oils dropper full to a quart of material.
