A hot bath after a long day can make all the difference in the world. It’s a simple way for you to take a mini vacation, without even leaving home. I wanted to give you an all natural way to super size your bath experience. Read on to find out how to make your own bath time tea bags.
Not only is this craft fun and easy, the end result is an amazing bath soak that you can use to relax after a rough day. This project takes about 10-20 minutes, more if you want the kiddies to help. It’s super easy and anyone can do it.
While all of these ingredients can be found and purchased from a craft store, I received them in a kit from The Hippy Hobby. They are a monthly subscription service that delivers everything you need to complete a craft (or two) from start to finish.
3/4 Cup Rolled Oats
2 Tablespoons Lavender Flowers
Lavender Oil-few drops
2 Tablespoons Chamomile Flowers
3 Tablespoons Epsom Salt
Bowl and Mixing Spoon
Heat and Seal Tea Bags
Start heating up your iron (on a safe surface).
Add a few drops of the lavender oil.
Fill the tea bags with the mixture.
Once the iron is heated up, you will be able to seal the tea bags. I used a paper towel as a barrier between the iron and the tea bags to prevent any burning. (You don’t see it here for photo purposes.)
When ironing it may take longer than you think for the tea bag to seal. Make sure you test the seal before you put the iron away or accidentally spill out any of the insides.
In Hot Water
All you need to do in order to use these bath tea bags is drop them into the tub. The tea bag keeps all of the ingredients inside and away from your drain. One tea bag is all you need to turn the bath water into an aromatic and soothing experience. They also make an amazing gift.
