How to make a lavender bath-bag

Lavender article

Lavender scent is known for its relaxing, calming qualities. This simple, rustic bath bag will scent your bath water and fragrance the room.

  1. Take a handful of dried lavender and place it on a square of muslin. Chop the stems to size if necessary.
  2. Take the four corners of the muslin square and tie them together securely.
  3. Tie some string around the bag to secure it. Then hang it under the bath tap so hot water can run through it.


Pick lavender for drying when the flowers are just about to open.

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.
