Cold and Flu Bath Soak is a gentle yet powerful blend of herbs that will help assist in the bodies own healing. Boneset, catnip, yarrow and peppermint promotes sweating, reducing fever, and muscle pain brought on by influenza. Catnip also helps break up mucous congestion. Peppermint and catnip are both part of the mint family and help with stomach woes and are soothing and calming to our nervous system.
Healthy Herbs are full of vibrant energy and are amazing when used to control the course of illness so our bodies can work to restore balance.
Directions for Bath Soak: Fill muslin bag 3/4 full of herbs. Hang from the faucet and allow hot water to run through the bag to create your herbal bath. Then immerse the tied bag into the water to infuse. Squeeze bag to release the floral essence. Relax and unwind in your herbal soak for 20 to 30 minutes. Add Epsom or Himalayan salts to your bath if desired! The herbal bag may be used as a compress on your temples, neck or other pulse points. It can also be used as a “herbal washcloth.” When finished empty the herbs from your bag rinse with warm water and hang to dry.
Directions for Foot Soak: Add enough hot water to your foot tub to cover your feet. Immerse your herbal bag into the water to infuse. You may add a handful of epsom or Himalayan salts if desired. Test the water for your comfort level before sinking your feet into your foot tub. Squeezing your herbal bag a few times will make a stronger foot bath. Placing a towel over the basin will help retain water temperature. Soak your feet for 15 - 20 minutes. When finished empty the herbs from your bag rinse with warm water and hang to dry.
Brewing Instructions: Boil water and let rest for a few minutes, add one teaspoon of herbal tea; steep for 10-13 minutes. Sip slowly, taking your time, as this tea is bitter tasting. If this tea is too bitter for your taste buds, our Mellow Mood Tea is a floral, earthy tasting tea that can help one relax and ease tension and aid in reducing fever, colds and influenza.
Enjoy a bath while sipping on a cup of tea!
