      Make Easy Bath-Bags – How To

      Adapted from The Essential Oils Book by Colleen K. Dodt (Storey Books, 1996).

      Once you know how to make these simple little bath-bags, you’ll be able to use herbs, flowers, and kitchen-cupboard ingredients to create dozens of baths – healing, invigorating, or sensual, depending on your mood and what you need. And you’ll never clog your bathtub drain!

      Includes a great recipe for soothing itchy dry skin. And bath bags make lovely gifts, too!

      Simple Solution:

      Any of the following may be used to create a bath bag:

      For Everyday Use
      old nylons, odd socks, pieces of fabric with raw edges

      For Gifts or Special Occasions
      hand-sewn bags, muslin tea bags, cotton washcloths, pretty handkerchiefs

      Simply place a handful of bath herbs or materials in the center of the fabric, gather up the edges, and fasten with a rubber band, adding ribbon if you intend to give as a gift. If using a sock or nylon, just knot the end.

      To use:
      Tie the bath bag on the waterspout as the tub is filling, or toss it in like a big tea bag. Scrub yourself with the bag, squeezing it often to release the oils from the herbs.

      soothing oat bath bag


      1/3 cup rolled oats
      2 tablespoons dried lavender or 6 drops lavender essential oil
      Mix ingredients and place in bath bag. Rub bath bag all over, allowing the pleasant slipperiness to soothe your skin.
