This wonderful herbal soak is ideal after a day of manual labor as it replenishes and ex foliates the skin.
What you need
1/2 Cup Dried Lavender Sprigs
1/2 Cup Oats
1/4 Cup Dry Orange Peel
1/4 Cup Chamomile leaves
1/4 Cup chopped Rosemary
12 Bay Leaves, Crushed
Place all the herbs into the bath tub and swill around the water. Alternatively you can wrap the herbs in a square of muslin fabric tied with some cord. Then drop the herb filled bundle directly into the water.
Soak in the bath for around 15 mins.
This mix also makes a wonderful gift, wrapped up in a decorative jar or basket.
Makes enough mix for 2-3 strong baths or use it in smaller does for more sensitive noses.
