Scrub-A-Dub-Dub, Herbs in a Tub

As much as I enjoy fall (I love layering peacoats, Steve Madden boots, Hue tights, chic cardigans and colorful pashminas.) I do not enjoy the cold weather that comes with it. Every morning I have a harder time getting out of bed than I did the day before. Wrapped tightly in my warm and cozy comforter I have zero motivation to step out of my queen-size bed and enter the realm of what I consider to be the “cold plague.”

Unfortunately I don’t have any sage advice on getting out of bed in the mornings, but I do have some tips on how to reward yourself for the days you mange to get up: Use herbs to create a warm, relaxing bath.

According to our 2006 article, Warming Winter Baths, lavender, sandalwood, rosemary and basil are a handful of herbs that will help create a therapeutic bath.

The Essential Oil Company offers organic essential oils to help you create your blends at reasonable prices. Try out some of these blends from our article Warming Winter Baths:

• Stress-Relieving Aromatherapy Bath
• Energizing Aromatherapy Bath 
• Restorative Bath Salts 
• Winter's Night Bath Salts 
• Muscle-Soothing Bath Salts
• Peaceful Dreams Bath Salts 

Unfortunately, there’s not always time to mix your own herbal blend. For those days, try out some of my favorite bath products that don’t require a lot of time and energy:
