A soothing home spa soak.
Soak cares and muscle aches away with this calming bathtub remedy laced with tea and aromatic essential oils. Epsom salt is a naturally-occurring mineral that soothes achy muscle. Loaded with antioxidants, the green tea not only nourishes skin but also acts as an astringent to shrink pores and can fight inflammation. And of course, the warm, aromatic bath helps relax your senses and is conducive to a good night’s sleep.
Wrap these with a pretty ribbon for a great gift!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 cup Epsom salt
- 5 to 7 drops of your favorite essential oil (use rose or lavender for relaxation and eucalyptus for achy muscles)
- 1/4 cup loose leaf green tea
- heat-sealable tea bags
Here’s what you do:
Mix the salts and essential oil together until evenly distributed. Gently mix in the loose tea leaves. Place a few heaping spoonfuls of the mixture in a large, sealable teabag and seal bags with an iron. Makes about 4 tub teas depending on how full you like them.
