Beauty – Mulled wine bath

There’s nothing better on a cold winter’s day than a long, hot bath. For something a bit different, why not try one with mulled wine. The spices warm you up, and you can drink the wine at the same time as you’re soaking in some of it!

Mulled wine Bath

  • 1 bottle strong, cheap red wine (a Merlot is good)
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 star anise pods
  • Peel of one orange
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 bay leaves (preferably fresh)

Put all the ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low and let simmer with the lid on for 10 minutes. Be gentle. Take off the heat, add a cup to the bath and drink the rest!
