Baths, Gargles, Tonic Lotions and Douches

Most Baths are infusions/inhalations on a grand scale but with the added benefit of being topically effective and as a compress soaks up the healing properties of an infusion so too does the body and spirit. Simply add some essential oil, infusion, powder or plant part (rose petal, lavender leaves etc..) to running water, fill to required height and enjoy the relaxing, healing soak. Treatment baths include Seaweed and Oatmeal – where the aim is to wash/address the skin with the healing substance rather than just bathe.

Teas, tisanes, infusions or decoctions once cooled can be utilized as gargles and where appropriate as tonic lotions to sooth or cosmetically enhance skin and hair, also as body washes or Douches.
