Cold Comfort Lavender Flower Bath Recipe
• 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers and leaves
• 2 tablespoons dried rosemary leaves
• 1 tablespoon dried ginger root powder
• 2 tablespoons dried eucalyptus leaves
• Fresh eucalyptus leaves, rosemary leaves to float in bathwater (optional)
1. Mix together dried herbs.
2. Place them inside a square of natural fabric or a metal tea ball. Secure your bundle by tying the ends with a bit of sting.
3. To use: Hang the herb bag under your water tap. Fill the tub with warm (not too hot) water, letting the water flow through the herbs. Get in the bath, squeeze out your herb bag and place it behind your neck as you bathe. You also may use it to scrub your body with a bit of soap. Yield: 3 1/2 ounces.
