How to Make Wonderful Herbal Bath Soaks at Home

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

Today was the last day of the school year, and like many people, we enjoyed making a little home made gift to thank our teachers for all their hard work. This year the children have had lots of fun making Herbal Bath Soaks. We used little muslin drawstring bags, which the kids decorated with stamps using our washable, home made fabric paint – we love how they turned out, and even stamped little cards to match.

 

These wonderful herbal bath soaks are great fun to make, fabulous for your health and well-being and can be tailored to suit the recipient.

 

We have been learning lots about herbs and their uses over the last few months. There are so many plants that have a positive action on your skin, making them perfect to use in bath products. Our 21 Botanicals that are fabulous for your skin post doesn’t cover every single one, but will certainly give you a good starting point if you’d like to learn a little more.

What we used to make our Herbal Bath Soaks

We have 2 sizes of these little bags, so decided to make two different herbal mixtures to fill them. For the bigger bags we made a relaxation soak, and for the tiny ones we put together a beautiful skin renewal mix.

Our Relax mix combines Oats, Hops, Lavender and Chamomile to sooth and moisturise the skin, and would be perfect to have as a relaxing soak at the end of a hard day, or just before bed to promote a fabulous night’s sleep.

While our Renew mix contains Linden Flowers, Meadowsweet, Hibiscus, Lemon Verbena, Chamomile, Rose, Honeysuckle, Red Clover and Calendula for their beautifying, and anti-aging properties, as well as their wonderful fragrance.

We then popped all our herbal bath soaks into a  larger cotton bag, with our home-made cards and a little note telling our recipients about what is in their gift – It is important to always provide a list of ingredients for all home-made gifts in case of any sensitivities.

All the children’s teachers looked delighted with their home-made herbal bath soaks, and we think it’s a lovely way to show our appreciation for everything they do.

Sounds like a wonderful way to the days end with a soak in the tub with a therapeutic tea soak. I love the gift bags with the leaf print, they are so cute!

I adore the leaf block. It’s funny to think that somewhere in the world there’s a person who carved it who has no idea how much we all admire it – wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to tell them!

Everyone was delighted with them Erin, and it’s another great idea for those who don’t want alcohol or sweets (which are the other things we often make 🙂
