How to Use

Directions for a Simple Herbal Bath

  • Fill the muslin bag with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of herbs (tightly close the top!)
    • Every bathtub is different -- Start out with the smaller amount and see how it feels

    • The idea is NOT to fill up the bag with bathing herbs. The larger bag allows water to flow more freely around the herbs!

    • It is not true that if a small amount works well, then a large amount will work even better! 

  • Add the herbal tea bag to your tub
    • Hang the bag from the faucet and allow warm water (the temperature that is comfortable for you!) to run through the bag while the tub fills. When the tub is full, remove the pouch from the spout and let it float in the tub, continuing to steep in the bathwater.

    • OR place the bag in the bath under warm running water (the temperature that is comfortable for you!) until the tub fills and then let it float in the tub, continuing to steep in the bathwater.

  • Squeeze bag to release the botanical essence. Relax and soak for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • After your bath empty and rinse the reusable muslin bag and allow it to dry.

An herbal bath is a time to relax the body not cleanse it
-- no soap or bubble bath! If you need to wash take a shower before. To get the full benefit from an herbal soak, simply towel dry when you leave the tub. 


The herbal bag may be used as a compress on your temples, neck, or other pulse points. Use as an “herbal washcloth,” with or without soap. When finished empty and rinse the bag and allow it to dry.


No time for a bath or No bathtub? Our bathing herbs (also known as bath or tub teas) are very versatile!

  • Use the herbal bag as a warm or cool compress on your temples, neck, or other pulse points
  • Use a small amount to make a soothing foot bath!
  • Use the herbal bag in the shower as an “herbal washcloth.” 
  • After using in your tub place the whole bag in the dryer to add a fresh scent (works great with towels and linens).

Herbal-Bath-Tub-TeasWhether you call them "bath teas," "bathing herbs," or "bathtub teas," soaking in a warm fragrant herbal bath provides a quiet sanctuary in which to retreat, reflect and refresh. 

The healing properties trapped in the herbs and released by the water can help boost your mood, calm the mind, soothe sore muscles and joints, opens pores, soften skin, and promote more restful sleep.

As the beneficial properties of the herbs are released into the water, a pleasant aroma fills the air which provides soul therapy, skin therapy, and aromatherapy all in one.

So, draw a warm bath infused with fragrant or therapeutic herbs, light a few natural candles, play soothing music, and relax. It may just be the perfect medicine for whatever ails you.


Discover Your Creative Spirit

Herbal bath teas are perfect all on their own but anytime you prepare an herbal bath you can combine bathing herbs with other great skincare additives most of which can be found in your kitchen cupboards.

A Few Important Notes:

Despite the many advantages, a warm bath may not be recommended for everyone.

  • Do not use very hot water
  • Do not soak for more than 15-20 minutes each time
  • If you have a heart condition or any medical condition, consult with your doctor before beginning a new bathing routine
  • If you are pregnant, please discuss baths with your doctor or midwife
  • Keep some cool drinking water nearby
  • Even a healthy person may begin to feel dizzy, or not well when taking a bath. If this happens, slowly get out, rest and drink some water as you may be dehydrated. If you do not feel better soon, please seek medical advice.
The answer is, YES!

Product Reviews


Hi Ida!  I just wanted to let you and the rest of the Chagrin Valley family know how much I love your Soothe My Skin Bath Tea! I had a few cuts and scratches on my arms and legs…My pet bunny “Cooper” likes to use me as his personal chew toy (I use your carrot and honey soap so that’s probably the reason…guess I taste pretty good!!  LOL) I decided to try your bath tea. After a couple of uses, it really made a difference in my skin, the scratches were smooth and had even started to disappear. I even splashed some on my face and guess what?  It makes an EXCELLENT toner!! I hope in the future you will consider creating facial teas.  Your products are wonderful! I appreciate you using your talents and wisdom to better the lives of others. On behalf of my bunny Cooper…please continue making the soothe my skin bath tea! God Bless you and may you always prosper in every endeavor!  Stephanie, Louisville, KY
