The dried herbs can be used in soap or on top of soap. You can also use them in bath teas if you make them. Orange peel would be great in a scrubs if you finely chop it. You can use the stearic acid in your soap too for hardness or if you make scrubs, it can be used in there depending on your recipe. Dendric salt can be used in salt baths or salt scrubs - it is good for holding scent without clumping. I add my scent to a bit of dendric salt and then add that to my salts and bath teas.

I vote for bath teas!

You could add them to instant tea, wrap a few teaspoons in cheese cloth or place them in a cotton bag & toss them in the next hot bath you take.

You could also infuse herbs into oils used for soaping or other B&B products. I know the hibiscus flowers and the orange peel can be used for colorant in CP soap. All of the herbs are aromatic and I agree also that they can all be used in bath teas.
