With Mother's Day just around the corner, everyone is racking their brains for little ways to mum feel extra special this Sunday. Our Herbal Tea Bath Bags are super simple and a perfect to make with the little ones. These can be one of your best tools for taming the accumulated stress and tension of everyday life especially while our life is turn upside down from the pandemic. Make your own bath tea bags by putting four tablespoons of dried herbs into a sock, old piece of T-shirt fabric, cotton muslin tea bag or just about any kind of tightly woven cloth. Use string or a rubber band and tie the cloth shut to make a sachet/pouch/bath bag with the herbs in the cloth.
Camomile and Rose Herbal Tea Bath Bags
A favourite from Kamimcbride for helping to relax and bring a peaceful sleep. The combination of roses and chamomile is a wonderfully relaxing mix
2 tablespoons dried chamomile
2 tablespoons dried rose petals
Add herbs to sock or muslin or cotton pouch.
Secure the sock or pouch tightly so the herbs don’t spill out.
Hook or loosely tie the little sachet of herbs under the tub spout so the water will pour through your home made bath tea bag as your bath fills up.
Once your bath is drawn just let the sachet of herbs float in the tub.
Squeeze the bath bag several times while you are in the bath.
Breathe in the scent and watch the water change colour.
Remove the Bath Tea Bag when you are finished with your bath
Herbal bath tea bags can be used three times within about four days. If the wet pouch sits around longer than that it gets moldy. We use the same pouch for three days in a row then remove the herbs
Rinse the herbs out of the pouch. Wash and dry the material that you used to make the bath tea bag and re-use it
You can make your own fabric pouch for your bath tea bags and tie them with string or a rubber band. Another option is to purchase cotton or muslin pouches.
