•2 cups boiling water

1. Add the mint, rosemary, and lemon verbena to the boiling water.

2. Place in a tightly sealed bottle and store in a cool, dark place.

3. Allow the mixture to steep for 1 to 2 days.

4. Strain the infused water with a cheesecloth or screened colander and refrigerate until ready to use. Add 1 cup to each bath.

By the sea. Sea salt baths are cleansing and detoxifying; however, salt can dry your skin.

1. To get the best of both worlds, use plain Dead Sea salts or Epsom salts, then add 2 to 4 drops of the essential oil(s) of your choice.

2. Add an additional 2 to 3 tablespoons of a carrier oil such as jojoba, almond, or sesame.

3. To add a festive flair to your mixture, add a few drops of food coloring. You may also add dried herbs to the salt blend.

4. Store in a tightly sealed container. Makes 2 baths.
