Superwoman Dried Flower Bath Recipe

• 2 tablespoons dried chamomile daisies
• 2 tablespoons dried rosebuds
• 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
• 2 tablespoons dried hops flowers

1. Mix together dried flowers. Store in a clean glass jar or resealable plastic bag.

2. To use: Place the dried flowers in the center of a square of cotton fabric. Secure the ends with a rubber band or bit of cotton string. Place in the bath as you fill your tub and allow the scented flowers to steep in the warm water. Yield: 8 ounces.

Soothing Extra: Prepare a cup of this “tension taming” herbal tea. Mix together one teaspoon finely chopped or minced fresh ginger root, 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped or minced fresh dandelion root, and 1 teaspoon pure honey in one cup boiling water. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain. This tea is especially soothing when enjoyed as you soak in the bath.
