Herbal Bath Tea Bags

I use these bath bags to soothe my skin when I am feeling hot or itchy. They are useful if you have eczema or another skin condition. You can add various different herbs depending upon what you prefer. Other than the ones I have used, Calendula or Gotu Kola are also supposed to be soothing and cooling.

If you have dry skin you could also try adding 20mL of almond oil to the bath. Shake the oil with water in a small container so that it emulsifies before you put it in the bath. This stops the oil from sitting on the surface of the bath in a layer.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoons of Oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon of lavender heads
  • 1 tablespoon of dried chamomile flowers (you can use chamomile tea)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried peppermint leaves (you can use peppermint tea)

Method:

Mix all the ingredients, and place into the muslin. Gather the ends of the muslin, and tie into a bag with string or a rubber band. Make the bag loose so that there is room for the contents to expand when they are added to the water in the bath.

Place the bag into your bath while you run it. To assist the ingredients to be released, you can squeeze the bag a few times.

You may be surprised how fragrant and relaxing this bath is. Take care not to fall asleep! Sit in the bath for 10 to 20 minutes and make sure that you splash the bath onto your face and over your head for the full benefits.
