Rosemary and Pine bath will warm you up, relieve sore joint pain and increase your vitality. Put dried herbs (2 tbsp each dried Rosemary and dried Pine needles) into a muslin pouch. Secure the pouch tightly and hook under running tub spout. Squeeze the bag several times into the bath water. These bags can be used a couple of times within 2 or 3 days.

What would it feel like if you could actually say:

“I have a tool that can help me with my stress, take that layer off and soften that edge?”

Do you know what it’s worth? It ensures you fall sick less often and get a better night’s sleep. And that extra sleep shows up in how you feel the next day and what kind of mood you’re in.

Therefore, one of my best home wellness stress hacks is a Herbal Bath. Herbal baths help reduce stress levels, prevent colds, stop headaches, calm your mind and help you sleep better.

Benefits Of  Tub Tea Bath

This recipe has equal parts Rosemary and evergreen needles. You can use Cedar, Fir or Pine; any of these evergreen tree needles will work. The combination of Rosemary and Pine, Cedar or fir needles smells wonderful. This bath will warm you up, relieve sore joint pain and will increase your vitality.

  • Pine, Fir and Cedar needles help clear up sinuses, bronchial congestion and stimulate mental clarity. This clearing effect mitigates tension and de-clutters the mind
  • Pine needles alleviate colds, sore joints and stimulate circulation. If you are feeling cold and creaky, a Pine needle bath can help get your blood flowing and warm you up. The lemony scent has an uplifting affect and can help with the winter blues. If you are feeling slow and sluggish and if the sun hasn’t been out for a while; try this bath to get things moving. The aroma of the Pine needles can change your mood.
  • Rosemary has an anti-spasmodic effect and helps relax the muscles. This bath has a warming, opening and uplifting effect.

How To Make Relaxing Tub Tea Bath

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dried Rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons dried Pine needles (you can also use Cedar or Fir)
  • 1 muslin pouch.

Instructions

  1. Put dried herbs into the pouch.
  2. Secure the pouch tightly so that the herbs don’t spill out.
  3. Hook or loosely tie the little pouch of herbs under the tub spout so the water will pour through your home made bath tea bag as your bath fills up.

Notes

  • Once your bathtub is filled with water, let the pouch float in the tub. You can squeeze the bath bag several times while you are in the bath.
  • Breathe in the healing aroma!
  • Remove the bath tea bag when you are finished with your bath.

Shell Life

Herbal Tub Tea bags can be used a couple of times within 2 or 3 days. If the wet pouch sits around longer than that it gets moldy.*

All you need to do is store a big batch of Tub Tea bags in a container in your bathroom.  Just throw a couple into your next bath and reinvigorate your spirits.
