Herbal Bath Recipes

Herbal baths work because your skin can absorb the healing properties of the herbs selected and because you are giving your skin a break of your everyday skin-care routine that might be drying your skin even more.

How to make a herbal bath at home?

There are two ways to make a herbal bath for yourself. The first one is to select your herbs and put them all together in a bag. Then add the bag to your bathwater and enjoy your bath.

The second way is to boil water in a boiling pan, and then add your herbal mixture to the water. Leave the herbs to sit 15-30 minutes, and then add the water to your bathwater.

Both ways are equally effective, so it all comes down to what is an easier method for you.

Extra Tip: Always use dried herbs and teas to add to your bathwater, because their healing substances dissolve more easily in the water than fresh herbs.

What Are The Best Herbal Bath Recipes?

The best part when taking a herbal bath is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. You can always experiment with herbal mixtures or simply use what you have already in your home. However, if you are unsure how to make your herbal bath, here are a few recipes to help you out:

1. Lemon Balm Leaf

If you want to soother your skin and fall asleep faster, then add some lemon balm leaf to your bathwater. Lemon balm leaf is perfect for easing off extra nervousness and easing your nerves which allows for you to fall asleep faster, and to get a good night’s sleep.

2. Thyme

3. Calendula & Rose Petals

If you want to soothe your skin and pamper yourself we suggest to add calendula and dried rose petals to your bathwater. Calendula is also a well-known herb from which medicine is made, that soothes skin inflammation, and sometimes even for poorly healing wounds. If your skin is chapped because of extra dryness during the winter, then skin the rose petals and stick to Calendula to soothe your skin.


4. Chamomile & Lavender

If you want to ease off the tension in your muscles and de-stress after a long harsh day, then adding chamomile and lavender to your bath water is a perfect choice. You can use them together or separately, depending on your preference. If your skin is sensitive, we recommend sticking only to the chamomile, because it’s a gentle nourishing herb, that softens the skin and eases any discomfort.
