Herbal Bath Tea ~ Peppermint
Herbal Bath Tea ~ Cold and Flu
I purchased chemical and tag free "press n' brew" bags for tea making, but will mostly use them for traveling, and for bath teas. We used muslin before, but ended up with tea leaves in the bath water each time. By the way,
Mountain Rose Herbs sells these in two sizes, so you can mix up a larger mix in one for a bath bag (or two). Or use the larger for an entire pot of tea.
I found out that peppermint alone, is great for soothing itchy body rashes, so it can be added to your bath, so I made a few. I seem to break out after cleaning the barn, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Homemade tea bags and bath bags are nice for gifting too.
