Bath Teas

Herbal Tea Baths
You can make a variety of the herbal tea bath bags, all you need are:
Thread & Needle
Coffee Filters
Herbs of choice

Mix the herbs as according to your preference, place a handful in the center of a coffee filter, carefully flatten and fold the edges of the coffee filter over so that it is rectangular shaped, now fold the top down and the bottom up and sew the flaps shut so that the herbs wont fall out when placed in the bath.

To make my favorite bags I use:
Calming Tea Bath
Equal parts of
Chamomile
Hops
Passion Flower

Stimulating Tea Bath
Equal parts of
Peppermint
Eucaluptus
Lavender

Floral Tea Bath
Equal Parts of
Jasmine
Daisy

Stress-Relief Bath Tea
1.5 cup epsom salt
1cup sea salt
1cup lavender
1cup chamomile
30 drops lavender eo
(or you can add chamomile eo as well if you wish)

Mix in large bowl. Makes about 14 1/4cup baths- you can put them in jars with small muslin bags (look in the dollar store or big lots, etc. for nice jars and at the tea section of healthfood stores for muslin bags) Or, several toiletries suppliers carry large iron-close tea bags- those are nice when you don't want to dump out a muslin bag after every bath.. :)
