It smells very good!!!
when we get to the birth, we get a large stock pot out, and begin boiling the water. When it is boiling, we add the herbs (sometimes we put the herbs in a white sock and tie it shut and put that in the pot,) or may add the herbs straight to the pot. Boil for about 5 minutes with herbs in it, then shut it off and let it set until birth is over.
After the birth we get momma and baby into the new bath water, with the added herbal water. If the herbs are in the sock, we just add the sock to float around too.
