An herbal bath incorporates herbs into your bathing experience. This may be in the form of whole herbs, (the most convenient way to do this and the least messy is via bath tea) or by adding infusions, essential oil.

Although it is popular to use essential oils in the bath, some may cause skin irritation and other unpleasant sensations.

Oils do not dissolve in water and can bind to your skin, which is primarily made of fat. If you are sensitive to the oil, it can be very difficult to wash it off to relieve your discomfort and if it is given access to particularly delicate areas, this can be a big problem. Proceed with caution.

Also, essential oils are delicate; some may evaporate quickly when exposed to heat, which wastes a rather costly product. It may be best to use an infusion in the bath and then anoint yourself with well-diluted essential oils at the close of your bathing ritual.)) or other herbal products.

An herbal bath allows the magickal or healing attributes of the herbs used to surround the user completely. The skin is the largest organ of our body and can absorb medicine in the form of herb-infused water at a great rate. 

Ritual baths are also important for many magickal practitioners to prepare for ritual or remove negativity. The combination of the herbs, fragrances, and water all have a very focusing, relaxing and healing effect.
