Not long ago I had a mini baby shower for a friend and made up these little favors for the gals to take home. Tub tea!
These herbal bath teas are packed with herbs, salts, and other skin soothing treats to steep the most luxurious bath. It’s the perfect way to warm up and relax in cold winter months and when you are done, there is no messy clean up or herbs to pick out of the drain.
LAVENDER OATMEAL TUB TEA RECIPE
- 2 cups Epsom salts
- 2 heaping tablespoons dried lavender
- 15-20 drops lavender essential oil
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup powdered milk
- Mixing bowl
- 9 Extra large (size 4) tea filters
Mix the Epsom salts, dried lavender, and essential oils in a large bowl then add in the powdered milk. The oatmeal should be ground in a food processor or blender to get a coarse power before adding it to the bowl as well. Mix well and you are ready to fill your tea bags.
You can find the labels I used for this Lavender Oatmeal Tub Tea over at Evermine where I also blog.
Hello, I’m wondering how long they last in their box once made? If they become gifts for example, how freshly made should they be?
The essential oils will start to dissipate, but there dried ingredients should last well. I would not store them for more than a few weeks before giving them as gifts. Even though they will last much longer than that, it is nice to give them freshly made.
Hi. Intrigued as to the purpose of the ground oats and milk powder?!
Great gift idea! What size box did you use? Thank you!
