I have a cold and it is making me feel rubbish! So last night I had to have a quick rummage around the house for ingredients I could use for a bath that what help soothe my aching limbs and ease my cold symptoms. This actually ended up being a lovely collection of ingredients so I thought I would share…..
To make this, you’ll need:
- 100g Epsom salt
- 25g Bicarbonate of Soda
- 2 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers – I took mine out of some Teapigs Tea Bags! I have run out of last years home dried Chamomile Flowers.
- 1 tablespoon juniper berries
- 2 tablespoons pine needles – foragged from the Christmas Tree that is till hanging around in the garden waiting for the Spring Equinox to be burned.
- 1 tablespoon sage leaves
- 10 drops of Lavender Oil
- one 12″ x 12″ square of muslin or cheesecloth, or toe of a stocking (or sock)
- ribbon or string
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl and then place them in the center of the cloth and add the drops of essential oil. Take up the corners of the cloth and tie with a ribbon or string. Tie the herb bag over the tap to allow warm water to run through, then relax and enjoy!
