What herbs did you all use for your herbal bath? Was it effective? Would you use it again? How did you make it?

Same with the labouraid!


Give more**Expect Less
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

i didnt use herbals in my bath (I got some mix form www.inhishands.com but never used it)

For laboraid i have 2 recipes

2 cups water
2 cups apple juice
bit o salt
bit o honey
2 crushed calcium tablets
1-2 fresh squeezed lemons
mix together and drink

i didnt put exacts on the salt and honey b/c some ppl prefer less salt.honey and some more. so base those on your tastes

1 qt water
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c honey
1/3 c lemon juice
1-2 calcium tablets crushed
1/4 tsp baking soda

I have not tried this one but its not much different than the previous except no apple juice

here is one other. I tried it but didnt care for it at all, way too sweet for my liking

1/2 cup OJ
9 tbsp sugar
3/8 tsp salt
add enough water to make 2 liters

I haven't used the herbal bath that my girlfriend gave me but it is from Wose Way Herbal... I'll let you know in 2 months or so if I liked it.

As for laborade... I drank a mixture of red zinger and lemon zinger tea, sweetened with apple juice. Nothing more, nothing less.
