Pour the mixture into a clean glass jar such as a mason jar and store in the refrigerator. When your ready to use the Bath Soak scoop some of it into a small organza or muslin bag. Tie it around the faucet and allow hot (not scalding) water to flow through the bag and infuse the ingredients into your bath water.
To get the most benefit from your aromatherapy bath recipe, boil a kettle of water, then steep the bag in a bowl of very hot water for 10 minutes or so. (Yes, you’re making herbal tea for your bath!) Pour the liquid into your bathwater BEFORE YOU GET IN then check the temperature to make sure the bath water is not too hot. Drop the herbal bag in the water, slide in and relax for 20 minutes. Rub the bag over your skin – it will feel slippery. This is the mucilage from the oats, and it’s extremely nourishing for your skin. It also gets rid of redness and itching.
