Sometimes a cup of tea is just not enough. After a long day’s work (assuming there are no water restrictions in your area) there is nothing like a good soak in the bath. #treatyoself.
Honeybush tea is not only excellent for your health, its also great for your skin. So here I give you the ultimate DIY for the most calming bath soak around, complete with relaxing aromas, detoxifying bath salts and healing honeybush.
You will need:
- 1/3 cup of your favourite Mightea Fine honeybush
- 2 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
- 2 tbsp Epsom salts
- 1 tsp sweet almond oil
- 4 drops lavender essential oil
- 2 drops rosewood essential oil
- 3 pieces coarse woven muslin cloth (20 cm x 20 cm)
- cotton string
So this is all really easy. Simply combine everything together in a bowl. If you have any specific essential oil combinations your prefer just go for it! If you don’t happen to have any essential oils laying about, that’s also fine – just add some more tea.
The next step is to package your mix into individual bath tea bags. The bags prevent the tea leaves from getting stuck in your drain or scratching your skin in the bath.
Once everything looks mixed, scoop about ¼ cup of your bath soak into the middle of a piece of muslin cloth.
Carefully lift at the corners to form a little teabag holding your soak mix. Tie with a string and store your bags in a nice sealable container. Its nice to keep your string a bit longer so that you can tie it around the bath tap while you’re taking a dip – just so you won’t find yourself sitting on it by accident. Now step back and marvel at your creation.
Once used, these little bath bags can be emptied into your garden or pot plants (tea leaves are always a good thing). The muslin cloth and string can be re-used and you’ll have an endless supply of DIY bath soak bags to soak yourself calm.
