This recipe will ease and relax tired muscles after a hard day’s work.
- 1⁄2 cup dried mint leaves
- 1 cup bay leaves, chopped
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. almond extract
Toss all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, then place in a 1-square-foot piece of cheesecloth. Tie with string and submerge it under very hot, running bath water. Allow the bath water to cool to a comfortable temperature while the bouquet infuses.
Relax in the bath for at least 30 minutes, adding warm water to maintain a comfortable temperature.
