Who doesn’t love a relaxing bath every now and then? Apart from bubble baths, have you tried soaking in natural herbs? Herbal baths are fun and almost too easy to make, they are in fact similar to your daily brew except that the combination of the herbs are meant for soaking purposes. Plus, they make amazing gifts for your friends and families too!
Since thousands of years ago, Romans have been known to use Lavender to scent their bath water and their freshly washed linens. Imagine soaking your soul and senses in a tub of powerful natural herbs, bringing relaxation to a whole new level.
Most herbs not only contain relaxing properties, they are also known to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory contents. They are very often used to relax your moods as well as treat insomnia, depression, and restlessness. Our skin is one of the largest organ, so a tea bath allows the body to absorb the beneficial properties of the tea much faster than you can achieve through your regular cuppa brew.
Some benefits of a tea bath include:
- Skin exfoliation
- Stimulates circulation
- Soothes stressed skin

There are countless combinations to do your own herbal bath, you can add almost any of your favorite herbs, essential oils, or bath salts to it, the only limit is your imagination! Right here is a demonstration of the simplest all natural bath tea bag. We have used Hibiscus, Lavender, Chamomile, Rose Buds, and Calendula to fill our muslin bags (muslin bags are washable and reusable). So let’s go soaking and start breathing in the aroma!

How to use the bath teas:
