Lavender is packed with fragrant oils, renowned for their relaxing, calming qualities. This simple, rustic bath bag will scent your bath water and fragrance the room.
If you’re worried about cutting off too much material from your lavender plants, then increase your stock by taking summer lavender cuttings. On the other hand, if you’ve got a glut of lavender, making lavender bath oil is an indulgent way to use both fresh and dried plants.
You Will Need
- Lavender, dried
- Square of muslin
Take a handful of dried lavender and place it on a square of muslin. Chop the stems to size if necessary.
Take the four corners of the muslin square and tie them together securely.
Tie some string around the bag to secure it. Then hang it under the bath tap so hot water can run through it.
Tie a bunch of stems together with string or a rubber band. Hang it in a warm place away from direct sunlight, e.g. an airing cupboard. It can take up to 10 days for the stalks to dry out completely.
