2 Tbsp dried chamomile
2 Tbsp dried rose petals
2 Tbsp dried orange blossoms
1 coffee filter
1 8 x 8 inch piece of lace fabric (or other fabric - muslin would work)
1 10-inch piece of stain ribbon
Put the herbs in the coffee filter, then place the coffee filter on the 8 x 8 fabric. Gather it up and tie with ribbon. Use hot water in your bath and let the herbs steep for at least 5 minutes prior to getting in.
Note: Never take a "hot" bath, as it is hard on the skin, causing wrinkling and itching. Let water cool a bit to a "warm" temp.
Relaxing Bath Infusion
1 Tbsp dried peppermint
1 Tbsp dried lavender buds
1 Tbsp dried eucalyptus
1 Tbsp dried chamomile
Make as above.
Note: Coffee filter is optional if you use muslin cloth or a drawstring muslin bag.
