Fresh Ginger Root Bath Recipe

Fresh ginger root has a sweet, spicy fragrance that is also a mild stimulant. Used in the bath, it promotes circulation and is perfect on a cold day to warm both your body and your senses. Ginger root easily can be found at the grocery store and you can start your own by planting the root in a pot. Keep your ginger plant in a warm, humid location, and in eight to 12 months it should be ready to harvest. To harvest, cut off the leaf stalks and remove the fibrous roots. Cut as much as you need and replant the rest.

• 1/2 cup baking soda
• 2 tablespoons grated ginger root
• 1/2 cup water

1. Mix together all ingredients and pour into a clean container.

2. To use: Pour entire mixture into the bath as you fill the tub, stir well, and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. After bathing, dress warmly, as this bath is super cleansing and really opens up all your pores. Yield: 8 ounces, enough for one bath.
