After a very long day who wouldn’t want to wind down and relax those sore muscles and reduce stress levels? If you want to heal your body from all the stress, relax and recover, the following DIY herbal bath tea recipes can help you do just that. Although these bath recipes are healing, if you have allergies, you may want to do a skin patch test when using herbs and essential oils in your baths.
To do a skin patch test at home, simply apply a small number of your oils or herbs on a small area under your jaw or behind your ear and let it sit for 5 minutes. If you notice any redness, swelling, rash, or hives, you may want to omit the ingredient to prevent unwanted side effects from the recipe.
