How to Make a Bath Tea
If you've never tried a bath tea, then maybe now is the time!
Not only is bath tea a lovely addition to the tub, but a great gift idea that is so easy to make, you can involve the kids and turn it a fun family project.
And with holiday season coming up (in some parts of the world), this might be the perfect gift idea for a special family member or friend.
Let's get busy!
Necessities for Making Bath Tea
- Dried herbs of choice
- Bowl in which to mix herbs
- Organza bags (or large sized tea bags)
Here's the fun part: There are no set rules about proportions! You might want to combine scents that work well together, or colors that work well together, or anything else that strikes your fancy.
Have fun with it!
Below are the herbs I used for my 'Floral Therapy Bath Tea'.
I combined 2 different roman chamomiles: one with whole flowers (pricier but prettier) and a 'regular' chamomile. This was purely experimental and it turned out very well.
Other Herbs to Consider
- Witch Hazel
- Licorice Root
- Lemon Balm
Leave a little extra room in the bag so the herbs can expand a bit when they get wet.
If you want to use these as gifts, package them up with a fun and creative label and rejoice at your ability to give your own unique hand-crafted item as a gift.
if you use enough oats can turn the water milky, a la cleopatra!
