The addition of herbs just ups the goodness quotient. An herbal tea bath can elevate your mood (hello, jasmine), help you sleep (lavender, chamomile), chill you out after a stressful day (hibiscus), or energize you all over (peppermint).
While you could toss a bunch of Celestial Seasonings bags in to soak with you, it’s easy and fun to make your own special bath tea to keep on hand for when you need a little You time. Bonus: The recipe below won’t stain your tub!
