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.) They also sell muslin bags.
Having said that, I have to share another supplier for essential oils that I personally now use because I've found their quality to be the best. I switched to doTerra after buying a few oils like lavender and tea tree and comparing them in my recipes.
What I found was that they worked faster and more effectively than any other brand I've tried. So I want to offer their oils to you as well. It's always good to have options, don't you think?
You can shop retail by clicking the Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get 25% discount. Message me to learn more about the perks of going wholesale.
And, of course, Amazon is a one-stop-shop with home delivery that fits everybody's budget. Please remember - you get what you pay for, especially with essential oils. There are no laws enforcing purity so you have to trust the supplier. Buy the best oils you can afford.
Here's how I think of it... For budget, choose Mountain Rose. For quality, choose doTerra. For variety, choose Amazon.
