Soothing Herbal Bath Soak
When building your herbal apothecary, think about adding classic beauty products like floral toners, infused oils, bath salts, or luxurious lotions all of which can be easily made at home from organic ingredients, it's inexpensive and you know exactly what's in the bottle!
Beauty care is an integral part of healing. Just as tinctures and teas can promote healthy digestion and relaxation, herbal self-care rituals encourage whole body wellness and nourish the spirit.
For example, golden calendula flowers infused in oils can promote a radiant complexion and the simple addition of lavender essential oil to baths can relax the spirit. While these spa-like practices and products may seem more indulgent than necessary on the surface, I believe in the wisdom of age-old rituals when it comes to wellness.
2 tbs lavender
1 tbs rose petals
1 tbs dried rosehips
1 tbs clover blossom
1 tbs camomile flowers
4 tbs Epsom salt
50ml hemp seed oil (sweet almond oil or jojoba oil is also good)
10ml rosehip oil
5ml vitamin E oil
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add Epsom salt & mix.
Blend oils together then pour slowly over the flower & salt mixing until it’s all combined (don’t add just enough oil to coat everything).
Sprinkle in a warm bath, relax & enjoy.
