Bath Tea Recipe
This bath tea DIY is a simple herbal bath additive that will help soothe and care for your skin. It uses fresh herbs that you can easily find at your natural grocery store.
Or, you can shop online at a store like Amazon and find them there.
How do you make a bath tea?
There are several different types of bath teas you can make. Some contain Epsom salts with essential oils. Others, like this one, contain dried herbs.
You can combine both methods if you like. It’s entirely up to you. Basically, you are filling small organza or muslin bags with the mixture and tossing them in your tub while it fills with warm water.
The heat of the water releases the herbal infusion so that your skin can benefit from it.
What should I put in my bath tea?
You can use these in your bath tea recipe:
- Dried lavender
- Bath salts
- Ground oatmeal
- Dried herbs
- Rose petals
- Baking soda
- Essential oils
- Chamomille flowers
What does putting tea in your bath do?
This is simply a way to let the herbal properties of the dried herbs infuse your bathwater. Using a muslin or organza bag helps to keep the herbs contained in one place rather than floating throughout the tub.
If you don’t have a bag, you can certainly just dump the herbs into the tub. But, you will need to rinse off and clean out the tub afterward.
How do you use bath tea?
After you make this bath tea recipe, you will put the herbs into a little organza or muslin bag. Then, either hang the bag over the water spout. Or, toss the bag into the water.
As your tub fills with water, the herbs will infuse the warm water with their properties. Then, just get in and relax.
What to use for a relaxing bath?
If you want to use this right before bad, you can add some dried lavender or chamomile to the bags. They are known for their relaxing properties.
I like to use lavender in my Earl Grey and Lavender bath bombs. It smells so good when the tub is filling.
What do I need to make this bath tea recipe?
You can change up the dried herbs that you use based on what you like or what you have on hand. These are the ones I like.
For an oatmeal bath tea, you can add ground oatmeal. For a milk bath tea recipe, add dried milk powder.
There are so many different variations you can try based on what you enjoy.
Benefits of these herbs
This is why I chose these herbs for my bath tea recipe.
- Dried marjoram has antifungal properties
- Heather has anti-aging properties
- Rose petals have Vitamin C and soothing properties
- Marigolds are antiseptic and anti-inflammatory
Can I reuse these bags?
Yes, you certainly can. Just make up the bath tea recipe and place it in the bag. After you use it once, empty the used contents into your compost bucket. Then, rinse out the bag and allow it to dry. It will be ready to be filed again.
