Self-care doesn't have to be some extravagant bath or massage it can be a time of reflection. A moment of your time spent to honor, love, and remind yourself just about how wonderful you already are.
Practicing Self-care is more than taking a nice soothing bath. Except when it is! I loveee my Sunday bath days! Today I want to tell you how you can make your very own herbal bath tea!
Herbal baths have been around for centuries it is the practice that infuses cooling, soothing actions of herbs in water. You can always just dumb flower petals into your bath but this makes less of a mess. You can use herbs you have grown yourself or you can buy your own. Make sure to use organic herbs. This recipe is cooling, soothing, and relaxing.
2 Cups of Dried camomile flower
1 Cup of dried rose blossom petals, or buds
1 Cup of Dried lavender flowers
12 Large Press and brew tea bags.
Add the herbs to a large mixing bowl. Stir with your hands breaking up with your hands and mixing well.
Measure 1/2 cup of your mixture filling each tea bag. You can also use muslin tea bags.
You can back your tea bags in a mason jar with a tight-sealing lid
Drop tea bag into an empty bathtub. fill the tub with hot water so the teabag is immersed. Leave the bag in the tub during the bag.
Soak in the tub and enjoy your bath.
