Makes one bath

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

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.

How Much Is A Serving?

For vegetables, one serving equals 1/2 cup of cooked or raw vegetables, 1 cup of raw leafy greens, or 1 cup of fresh vegetable juice. For fruits, one serving equals 1/2 cup or 1 piece of fresh fruit, or 3/4 cup of fresh fruit juice.
