It's time to expand my knowledge and use of herbs once again. This time, taking herbs to the bathtub. And one kiddo got to try out our first herbal bath tea.
When one of the kids had the flu, or flu-like virus, she wanted to take a bath. I've since then put together a "Bath Bag" for colds and flu, and we grow every ingredient in my herb garden.
1 cup dried sage
Note: You can sew your own reusable muslin bath bags, or simply cut a piece and tie it up with cotton string. I much prefer to tie up a round of muslin. The bath bags never stay shut completely and herbs start to float around in the tub.
Remember the organic orange peel I saved and dried? Well I used it for another bath tea.
I tried the stimulating bath tea recipe found in this book:
I had every ingredient except the lemon rind. The author has many herbal recipes in this book, if anyone is interested in this sort of thing.
