If you are dealing with a cold or the flu, and you have a lot of discomforting symptoms you should try making a homemade cold and flu bath soak that is really relaxing and soothing.
All you need is some cold and flu teabags along with some peppermint teabags, a few cups of Epsom salts and a bathtub full of warm water.
Making the Bath
The first thing you want to do is fill up your bathtub up with hot comfortable water. Next all you do is toss in five cold and flu teabags, five peppermint teabags and one cup of Epsom salt directly into your bathtub. After, allow the teabags and salts to create a lovely relaxing bath soak to help ease your cold and flu symptoms right away.
When the bath is ready to get into, it will have a brownish color with a minty herbal aroma coming from it, which is good to breathe in because it helps open up your sinuses, eases tension and stress, relieves headaches and lifts your spirits.
Then all you do is simply get into the bath and allow your whole body, mind and spirit to relax completely. As you do this, your cold and flu symptoms will begin to ease away naturally.
After your bath, you should make a hot cup of cold and flu tea, sip on it and then hop into bed for some much needed rest. After all, the best medicine for fighting off the cold and flu besides a hot bath is plenty of rest.
