    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,” with or without soap
    • After using in your tub place the whole bag in the dryer to add a fresh scent (works great with towels and linens).

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why Use An Organic Bath Tea?
    Whether 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.

    Are Chagrin Valley Ingredients & Products USDA Certified Organic?

    Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic Company

    Certified Organic Skin Care

    The most important consideration in any business is its customers. Today's world of misleading claims, false advertising, and simple deception, often leaves consumers trying to discover the truth about personal products and their ingredients.

    • We want our customers to know that we are committed to transparency in everything we do.
    • We want our customers to know that when we say "organic," we mean it.
    • We believe that in becoming a USDA Certified Organic company, our customers do not have to wonder if we really use certified organic ingredients or if our organic products are truly organic.
    • So we choose to be a certified organic company and abide by the strict standards required for organic certification.

    Some of my favorite products are made with ingredients that just do not exist as certified organic. Why? At this time there are no standards created for ingredients specifically used in the personal care product industry. Organic certification of personal care products is based on the organic food standards set by the National Organic Program of the USDA.

    But since we are a certified organic company, we are required to submit documentation that even our "non-organic ingredients" were produced without the use of toxic pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), sewage sludge, or irradiation.

    Can I Use Your Natural Skincare Products While Pregnant or Nursing?

    Natural Organic Skin Care for Babies & InfantsWe often receive questions as to whether our soaps, shampoos, and other natural products are safe to use during pregnancy.

    We recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skincare routine with our organic products, or any other line of products.

    Read the label on a bar of commercial soap. Read the label on your jar of moisturizer.

    Now read the ingredients in a Chagrin Valley product.

    We use quality natural and USDA Certified Organic ingredients. No synthetic additives, colorants, fragrances, preservatives, or chemical derivatives are used.

    There is nothing in our all-natural basic soap or other products that could cause a problem in pregnancy.

    Topically applying the herbs present in many of our soaps is also not a problem. Your skin will absorb much less herb from the soap than if you would sprinkle them on your food.

    Essential Oils

    The issue that seems to be of most concern is the use of essential oils during pregnancy.

    There is a lot of confusing, ambiguous, and inaccurate information concerning the use of essential oils in pregnancy.

    The question of safety and safety testing has a lot to do with several factors.

    • The type and composition of the specific essential oil. Essential oils differ greatly in strength and composition.

    • The quality of the essential oil. Many "cheap essential oils" are not pure and maybe cut with synthetic chemicals.

    • The actual “dose” of herb/essential oils. Most of the clinical research on essential oil safety is based on information for internal (actually ingesting) large doses of herbs, essential oils, or herbal "medicines." Obviously there have been no tests done on pregnant women.

    • How the essential oil is being used. The concentration of essential oils that are absorbed through inhalation, as in aromatherapy, and massage is much lower than if you were actually ingesting the oil.

    But also, aromatherapy and massage therapy use much higher concentrations of essential oils than you find in soap or even in eating the herb. With aromatherapy, you are inhaling the high concentrations which get absorbed via the lungs and in massage therapy, the essential oils remain on your skin and are absorbed.

    Our scented soaps are gently scented with essential oils, but the choice is between you and your health care professional. The most critical time is the first trimester.

    Just about every one of our products, like lip balms, whipped butters, soaps, shampoos, and deodorants has a "no added scent" version.

    When there is a growing baby to consider, if you are at all uncertain as to the safety of an essential-oil containing product, or any ingredient, please consult your doctor, midwife, or health care professional!

    When it comes to safety during pregnancy it is understandable that many massage therapists and aromatherapists decide to err on the side of caution in recommending the avoidance of certain essential oils.

    Some Herbalists and Aromatherapist believe that essential oils that are normally safe to use, are safe during pregnancy, while others will recommend avoiding all essential oils during pregnancy.

    Some essential oils that are normally quite safe have hormone-like effects and some even stimulate uterine muscles, both of which would be contraindicated during pregnancy.

    Please do not ask us if one of our products is safe to use during pregnancy--we will simply refer you to this page.

    We do not provide a list of essential oils considered safe during pregnancy because the information available is very contradictory. One aromatherapy source will list an essential oil as problematic while another one states it is fine.

    The information is also changing constantly. Please do your own research and consult your doctor, midwife, or health care professional for the most up-to-date information.

    Sensitive Skin Can Strike During Pregnancy

    Even if you have never had sensitive skin in the past, you may notice that a product you have been using for several years now irritates your skin.

    The stretching belly is often the most sensitive spot. Other potential problem areas include the hips, thighs, and bottom where the skin may become dry and flaky.

    Although the exact cause is not known, raging hormones do make you more sensitive to a wide range of things, and also your skin is thinning and stretching as you, and your baby, grow.

    These changes can behave in unpredictable ways. For example, if you have eczema you may suffer from major flare-ups or complete remission during pregnancy.

    Keep your body well moisturized and avoid products that contain synthetic additives, colorants, fragrances, or preservatives. Any of these can exacerbate sensitive skin problems.

    Before trying a new product, you can always do a patch test to test for sensitivity.

    And again, we recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skincare routine with our products, or any other line of products.

    Pregnancy & Children: We do not provide information on the safety of essential oils during Pregnancy or for use in Children because the available information is very ambiguous and often contradictory. If you’re interested in using essential oils during pregnancy or with young children please do your own research and consult your doctor, midwife, or health care professional before use.

    Do Chagrin Valley Natural Skincare Products Contain GMO's?
    Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic company.

    We are required to submit documentation that ALL of our ingredients, even our "non-organic ingredients," were produced without the use GMOs.
