How to Make DIY Tub Teas

Tub teas are built upon a base of salt and oatmeal. We chose to use rose, calendula, lavender, and chamomile (as pictured above) as our botanical add-ins. However you can get creative with the botanical ingredients you choose. You can even add a drop or two of essential oils to the mix if you desire a more fragrant tea.

Just ensure that you use organic ingredients whenever possible so that no chemical, pesticide residue comes between you and your soothing, good-for-you bath experience.

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Divide mixture evenly among tea bags - about 5 tablespoons in each. Close tea bag per packaging instructions to ensure the ingredients don't escape into your bathwater.
  3. Store in an airtight container until bath time.

Directions for Use

Add one tea bag to hot bath. The salts and oats will dissolve into bathwater, while the botanicals will remain to add aromatic effects to tub.
