<em>Makes one bath</em>

<p>• 3 tablespoons red clover<br />
• 3 tablespoons nettle<br />
• 3 tablespoons peppermint<br />
• 3 tablespoons yarrow</p>

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.</p>
