All you need is a cup of sea salt and a handful of any herb of your choice, such as lavender, rosemary, spearmint, or peppermint. If you grow your own herb garden, then using your fresh produce is much better. Grind the herbs with a coffee grinder until it turns into the consistency of fine powder. Mix your powdery herbs with your cup of sea salt. And finally, toss the mixture into your bath. Then simply relax and enjoy the warm water and stimulating scent of the fresh herbs, while allowing the herbs to work their wonders.
