There is something satisfying about making home-made gifts. Simple ideas can be really effective.
One such example is making bath tea bags. A simple treat to throw in the bath to make it feel and smell more luxuriant.
What you'll need is:
Dried lavender rubbings - large handful
Dried rose petals - large handful
Dried calendula petals - handful
Dried rosemary - small handful
Thin cotton or muslin cut into 6 rounds the size of a side plate.
You'll also need:
Coarse sea salt 6 TBS
*Epsom salts 3 TBS
**Baking soda 1 TBS
Essential oil (5 - 6 drops)
Mix all ingredients In a large bowl.
Spoon a TBS into the centre of a cut muslin cloth,
[*Epsom salts is useful for soothing tired muscles and **baking soda, softens the water and helps to relieve skin irritation.]
Tie up securely with string and store the bags in a sealable container.
When you draw a bath, drop a bath tea bag into the water and enjoy.
Wrapped and ready for the tree!
