The best herbs and teas to bathe in for an ultra-relaxing end to your day!
What could be better after a super stressful day than soaking in a nice hot, aromatic bath? A warm bath on its own is a great way to help soothe achy muscles and decompress. Adding a small satchel of herbs could be just the thing that tips the scale and sends you into the epitome of relaxation.
If you’re under the weather and looking for some nasal decongestion, a small bag made of muslin, or a reusable tea bag, filled with about 1/4th of a cup of peppermint steeped in your bath could do just the trick. You might also consider some lemon grass or Eucalyptus.
For a more soothing type of bath, one that’s dearly needed after a particularly stressful day, you might fill your bath with the scent of rose petals, nettle leaf, or dandelion. An herbal rose petal bath will not only smell amazing, and help to calm your nerves, but the rose petals themselves are also a fine source of polyphenol antioxidants. Giving your body, not only the chance to decompress but detox as well.
If there’s nothing, in particular, you’re trying to achieve with your bath besides a good-old chill time, then I’d suggest sticking to the classics. In this sense, the same idea goes for bathing tea as for drinking tea. Herbal blends containing chamomile, lavender, or orange blossoms will have much of the same effect fragrantly as they do when consumed.
Herbal tea baths are such a simple and accessible way to throw together a relaxing experience quickly. And there are so many creative and fun ways to mix herbs.
