The addition of herbs to your bath is wonderful. Some classic herbs to use for bath tea, salt soak or aromatherapy include lavender, rose, chamomile, elderflower, calendula, rosemary, thyme, mint, oat, cleavers, lemon balm, blackberry leaves, plantain and citrus peel. Possibilities are endless.
Drinking tea is beneficial but tea can also be absorbed topically through the skin through a bath. Using tea in your bath can help infuse your bathwater with antioxidants, help heal skin and with the release of essential oils reduce stress. And your bathroom will smell great!
Black tea helps to reduce inflammation and is great for skin and irritated muscles. Irritated skin from bites or sunburn is helped by a bath in this tea.
Green tea helps with muscle pain and soothes and softens skin and helps to relieve redness. It is loaded with antioxidants, so it helps skin recover from environmental irritants.
The teas at Healing House Herbs for an awesome bath would be Chamomile Vanilla, Body Wellness, Be Calm, Focus, Lemon Tea, Moringa, Orange Bliss, Refresh, Sipping Mint, Stress Go! Green, Green Cherry Rose, Blue Sky Green, Love Lavender Green, Rosemary Mint Green, Lavender Earl Grey, Pumpkin Spice Black, Pomegranate Rosehip Black.
Simply brew a pot of tea and allow to cool room temperature and add to your bath. Another method would be to add 3-5 tea bags to your bath.
I like to make my daughter Chamomile bags for her bath, but I add oat tops because her skin is so dry and lavender because she loves the fragrance.
