After a long, hard day I just want to run some hot water and melt in the bath. It sure feels good as the water works away muscle tension.
Adding herbs to your bath can be a great way to optimize nourishing benefits. Herbs in bath water work like marinating chicken or tofu. This sounds crazy, I know! But hear me out.
Cooking herbs used for any meat dish were chosen because of their antimicrobial properties. When the meat was allowed to marinate with these herbs, it took on the antimicrobial properties of the plants and was therefore protected form growing bacteria. This meant a lot when it came to people eating meat and staying alive back in the good ol' days. So, a bath with herbs is like allowing your body to soak in everything it needs from what the plants have.
