  3. Scoop mixture into pouches, filling a little more than halfway. This recipe yields 3-5 pouches.
  4. Store in a cool, dry place. These tea bags will hold their freshness for up to three months.

  2. When the tub is full, take the pouch off and let it float in the tub, continuing to steep in the bath water.
  3. Climb in and soak your worries away!

YL green tip: When you’re done, empty and rinse the sachet to reuse later!

What is in a DIY bath tea?

As promised, infusing your bath with these ingredients will deliver silky, smooth skin and a much needed relaxing aroma. How?

  • Oatmeal is a prime ingredient for self-care purposes. Great for dry skin, oatmeal is the skin conditioner you’ve been looking for and even easier to find at local grocery stores.
  • Dried flowers add a touch of fragrance and flair! They’ll add glamour to your bath and appealing gentle scents, even to the likes of Cleopatra.
  • Salt is just the ingredient for ultimate relaxation. When added to your bath tea, it’s just the kind of “sit back and relax” we’re eager for!
  • Essential oils– well, they’re a given! Soothing, luxurious, with tranquil scents-everything you want in a bath, thanks to the Lavender, Rose and German Chamomile trio! Bonus: The scent can transport your senses to a field flush with flowers.
