Herbal baths are deeply relaxing and purifying. The herbal bath recipe below is one of my favorites. It is gentle, yet purifying. The bath has a combination of benefits. The herbs are cleansing and soothing, the salt is detoxifying, and sitting in steaming water is just so good!
I’d suggest adding 3 cups of sea salt to the tub to make it extra cleansing. Salt is a great tool for extraction and cleaning our energy field. Also, be sure that the bath is hot. Ideally, you will be sweating and breathing the herbal steam.
This is a great bath to take anytime. It is especially great to use in conjunction with a new moon ceremony or with an inner work practice. The bath will assist in centering you and allowing you to drop back into your heart.

1 part lavender
1 part rosemary
1 part rose petals
1 part calendula
1/2 part sage
You can either make a strong tea and then add it to your bath water, or you can put the herbs in a large muslin bag and tie it to the nozzle of your tub (let the hot water run over the herbs as the bath is filling). Use about 4 oz of herbs per tub.
