WHAT IS BATH TEA?

Bath tea is an herbal blend of plants that soaks and infuses into the hot water of your bath, just like you would for a cup of tea, and is meant to help support your body.


The herbs that you include in your bath tea are absorbed through the largest organ of the body, your skin, as you soak all of your troubles of the day away. It works both topically and internally and is a TERRIFIC way to introduce plant medicine into your life.


WHAT DOES BATH TEA DO?

Bath tea helps to relieve your tired mind, body, and spirit and is wonderful in targeting specific areas that are sore and tender.

If you have any questions about what might work best for you, please make sure you consult with a doctor before trying alternative remedies and therapies mentioned here or in any of my other blogs.

HOW DO YOU MAKE BATH TEA?

The easiest way to make bath tea is with bath tea bags or a satchel. You can use a mesh infuser, too, or simply use a double layer of cheesecloth.


Add 3-4 scoops into your bath tea bag (or your infuser of choice) with the herb(s) you would like to use for your bath. This is a general measurement and you can always add more or less, depending on what your preference is.


Run the water until your desired temperature is reached and begin filling your bath as normal. Place the tea bag under the running hot water until there is enough water for you to add the tea bag into the actual water of your bath.


You can let the bath tea bag rest in the water the entire time, or let it steep for at least 15 minutes before removing it. Alternately, you can simply let it hang under the running hot water and toss it after the bath is filled.


For maximum results, soak in your bath for at least 15 minutes.
