Yummy Herbs: A Bath Sachet!

I just got sent this 'herb crafts tip' in e-mail by Herbanite Bob, from the book "The Pleasure of Herbs" by Phyllis Shaudys directly: A Bath Sachet

1 oz. Lavender or Rosebuds & Petals (or both)
1 oz. Peppermint or Rosemary leaves
2 cups Grated Castile Soap

Combine and use 2T (tablespoon)per bath. Fill muslin drawstring
bag or cheesecloth, tie and float in water as tub fills.

Hint 1: Add 2 T oatmeal or cornmeal per bag if you have oily skin.

Hint 2: You can also buy the disposable tea bags and put mixture
in teabag, heat seal and float in tub."

Sounds interesting! :) Of course no disposable tea bags in this household!


  1. Sounds lovely - I'm planning on making something like this for my Mum for Christmas this year. I was going to use oats and dried lavender as the oats go creamy once in contact with the water and are very moisturising for the skin.

  2. wow must try this...sounds really good & refreshing! I would certainly add the oatmeal...
    Thanks for this!

  3. Glad you like it!! :)

    I was thinking to maybe just use the herbs, as soap is used in washing anyway - interesting about the oats, haven't heard that before! Gotta research it a bit..

  4. Oo that does look good! I think I's skip the soap and add the oatmeal as well! I think they sell similar things in Lush, but this is obviously better cos it's home made and looks like it would cost considerably less!
