How to Make a Medicinal Bath

How to Make a Medicinal Bath

Medicinal Tea BathMedicinal 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.

Supplies :
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
Strainer

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

Ginger – increases circulation to the reproductive system

Chamomile – calming, helps one to sleep

How to make

1. Chose two to four herbs for your medicinal bath tea

2. Take a 1 – 2-gallon pot, fill with water. Put herbs into water. Bring to boil for 20 min. let steep for another 15 min.

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.

My favorite blend I used last night:

oregano

rosemary

sage

basil
