Content Tools

Makes one bath

• 3 tablespoons red clover
• 3 tablespoons nettle
• 3 tablespoons peppermint

1. Place the herbs in a large covered pot with 2 quarts of water. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Strain, and add to a bathtub of comfortably hot water. Soak for 20 minutes, adding hot water as needed. Pat yourself dry (avoid using light-colored towels because the herbs can stain) and relax.
