Scented with precious rose essential oil, this yummy aromatherapy bath recipe's sweet, floral scent brings you back to a healthy place of quiet peace.

Cool fact: 60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body, so bathing in herbal bath tea really does improve your health. Not only do you get the nourishing effect of the ingredients, but you also de-stress during your time in the tub. Truly one of the nicest bath products you can use to take care of yourself!

Herbal Bath Tea Recipe


1/2 cup Rose petals

1/2 cup Lavender flowers

1/4 cup Green Tea leaves (try a rose or jasmine flavored tea)

3 drops Rose essential oil (substitute Palmarosa if cost is an issue)

3 drops Lavender essential oil

1 drop Geranium essential oil



Combine the rose petals, lavender flowers and tea leaves in a dark glass or PET plastic jar.


Drop in the lavender, geranium and rose essential oils, placing each drop in its own little spot on top of the mixture. Use a stainless steel spoon to gently stir everything together.


Cap the jar and let it sit for at least 24 hours before using to let the aroma 'cure' (longer is better.)

To use your rose scented bath mixture, scoop a few spoonfuls into a small organza or muslin drawstring bag. Fill about half full - it will expand in the water. Buy muslin bags.

If you don't have a bag, put a few spoonfuls into the center of a square of double thickness cheesecloth, pull the edges together and tie it closed with a string.

To get the most benefit from your aromatherapy bath recipe, boil a kettle of water, then steep the bag in a bowl of very hot water for 10 minutes or so. (Yes, you're making herbal tea for your bath!)

Pour the herbal bath tea into your bathwater BEFORE YOU GET IN then check the temperature to make sure the bath water is not too hot. Drop the herbal bag in the water, slide in and relax for 20 minutes.

For a truly luxurious bath, add a tablespoon of aromatherapy carrier oil to extra-moisturize your skin.

Dry off without rinsing, and lock in moisture with a good body lotion, such as this Peppermint Lotion recipe.

Where to Get Supplies

I like Mountain Rose Herbs because they're ethical and sustainable, with lots of quality choices at good prices. I also like that they're a one-stop-shop for all my basic ingredients.

After some experimentation and comparison, I switched my oils to doTerra because I found they work better. They cost more than some other brands, but that's because the quality is higher. There's no fillers or substitutes to drop the cost of making them.

You can shop retail by clicking doTerra's Shop button at the top. Or click Join & Save to become a wholesale customer and get 25% discount. Message me if you want more details on how to maximize your savings.

For the best variety of any online store ever, browse Amazon. They have every brand you can imagine, and a wide range of prices.

Please remember - you get what you pay for, especially with essential oils. If a bottle of oil only costs a couple of dollars, it's only going to be worth a couple of dollars. 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.
