Give yourself some TLC with the gentle effects of an aromatherapy herbal bath tea recipe. Pretty, fragrant and restorative, essential oils and herbs soothe your nerves, relax your muscles and soften your skin.
One thing: You don't want your herbs floating loose in the bath water, because you have to clean out all the bits afterwards, which ruins the peaceful effect!
I put my herbal aromatherapy blends in pretty little organza bags. Another good option is muslin tea bags. Or even simply double-up a couple layers of cheesecloth and tie them closed with some string.
I like to make up jars of essential oils and herb blends because they look so pretty. Then I scoop out enough for one bath, fill my little bag and toss it in the tub.
You can find some really nice glass jars for storing your herbal aromatherapy recipes at Mountain Rose Herbs. (Just remember to use them up quickly if you choose clear glass - they're light sensitive.)
