There is nothing so lovely and relaxing as soaking in the bathtub after a long day. A bath helps to ease away stress; loosen tired
, achy, knotted muscles; and is just an excellent way to get some time for yourself. I very rarely get to take a bath, as a shower is all I have time for these days, but when I do get to take one, I love to fill the bathtub with wonderful smelling bubble bath
If you like to take a bath too, then check out this awesome post I found on TipNut.com
. The author gives you lots of recipes on how to make your own homemade herbal bath bags
To make the herbal bath bag, first, make a bag that will hold about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of your favorite herbal bath recipe, and then fill the bag with the herbs. Tie the bag tightly so that no herbs can try to make a getaway, hang it on the water spout, and let the water run down the bag. Another method is to steep the bag for 20 minutes in pre-boiled water, and then put the entire contents of the pan: hot water and steeped herbal bag, into your bath water.
The author gives you many great herbal recipes to make your herbal bags. Dried lavender
, rose petals, sage, basil, and oatmeal are all ingredients that you can use to make your herbal bath bags. I am wondering though, what do you do with the contents of the bag after you are done taking your bath? Maybe, just maybe, you could follow Maureen's advice and make your own potpourri
