Selecting Herbs for Tea

Herbs for bath TEA can be found in many places. Check your kitchen cupboard, your garden, or the shelf at your local health food store. Here are some examples of herbs that can be added to your bath TEA.

Basil, Chamomile, Lavender, Peppermint, Strawberry Leaves, Sage, Catnip, Comfrey, Spearmint, Chervil, Rose, Rosemary, Calendula, Savory, Horsetail, Thyme, Lemon Balm, Parsley, Marjoram, Jasmine, Orange Peel, Lemon Verbena, Eucalyptus, Violets, Bay Leaf, Hops, Valerian Root

If you don't have time to make an infusion or decoction, simple place your choice of herbs into a heat-sealable tea bag or a draw-string muslin bag and float in a tub of hot water.


  1. Ohhh, a lemon verbena bath sounds delightful. A great way to wake up.

  2. This makes me want to have a "soaky" bath as my girls used to call it. Great ideas.

  3. Now if I just took baths. I would love one with lemon verbena too.

  4. It all sounds great! I would love to soak in a bubble bathe infused with a wonderful smelling herb. Blessings!
