Medicinal baths are one of my favorite things in the world. They melt away stress, clear your energy and you also get the added benefits of steeping your entire body in herbs. If you do not have a bath tub, you can still enjoy the benefits with a foot bath. Why is this important? Because relaxation is key to optimal fertility.
Fresh or dried herbs: these herbs can be freshly picked from your yard, from the farmers market, or bought dried.
1/4 c sea salt
Big stock pot
Some of the best herbs for the medicinal bath are:
Rosemary – cleansing, great for the immune system
Lavender – calming, helps with stress
Calendula – great for the skin and spirit
Rose – calming, uplifting
Basil – helps to dispel stress, boosts immune system
Oregano – boosts immune system
Thyme – boosts immune system
Sage – clears energy
Eucalyptus – helps with deep breathing, good for the lungs

3. Draw a very warm bath, not scalding but as hot as you can handle.
4. Once the bath is ready add 1/4c of sea salt to the bath and pour the strained medicinal bath tea into the tub. Get in the tub and enjoy for 15 -30 min.
