Green Springs Home Spa Recipe

Fall is a great time to treat yourself to a herbal bath. Herbal baths ease the stresses of daily life, heals, refreshes and purifies the body. Gather up fragrant rose petals, fresh is best but dried is fine, hollyhock, calendula or marigold, hibiscus, basil, rue, lavender, St. John's wort, yarrow, lemon balm, and sage are all excellent choices. Collect your plants with intention and prayer.

Add the herbs to a large pot containing 1 to 2 gallons of hot water. Use 1 -2 quarts of fresh herbs, or 1-2 cups of dried herbs. Crush the herbs with both hands into the water as you offer your prayers or thanks to the plants. Once the water has cooled a bit place your feet in the water to soak.

Next draw a warm bath, light some incense and candles and spray the room with our AROMATIC INTENTIONS. Enter the tub and slowly pour the herbal bath water over yourself. Pour any remaining liquid over your head. Rest, meditate, and be with yourself in this healing way.

Finish by massaging your body using our creamy ORGANIC GOAT'S MILK SOAP, your skin will feel silky soft.
