Body & Soul: Herbal Vinegar Bath

article image

<p>This slightly acidic bath helps rinse away soap residue on your skin and reinstates your own natural acid balance. For women, it is also a good way to counteract yeast infections because the acidic environment will kill harmful bacteria. The combination of herbs gives your bath an uplifting scent that helps reduce stress. </p>
<p>• 1 cup apple cider vinegar<br />
• 1 cup water<br />
• 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary (or 1 teaspoon dried)<br />
• 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon (or 1 teaspoon dried)<br />
• 1 tablespoon fresh mint (or 1 teaspoon dried)<br />
• 1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds</p>
<p>1. Mix together all ingredients in a small saucepan or microwave container and heat gently until just boiling. Let the mixture cool completely and then strain off all solids. </p>
<p>2. To use: Pour the entire mixture into a warm bath and soak for 15 to 20 minutes.</p>
