How to Make a Cooling Herbal Compress

Did you ever need a compress?  Would you believe that you can make one in three easy steps?  The Mountain Rose Herb blog recently posted How to Make a Cooling Herbal Compress in Three Easy Steps.  According to Mountain Rose Herbs, compresses are a gentle and effective treatment for too much heat or minor bumps and bruises.  The preparation brings the healing constituents of herbs and the soothing sensations of a cool damp cloth close to your skin can accelerate the natural healing process.  When draped around the skin, the moisture of the tea soaked towel softens the skin and allows the healing herbs to penetrate deep into your body.
