      Make Easy Bath-Bags — How to

      Make Easy Bath-Bags – How To More Bath & Shower Solutions 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.

      wow this would be nice if my tub held water! Having some disabilities is difficult to get in/out of tub–would it work as well in the shower??
