Bath Tea Bags

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

These muslin sachets, often called Tub Teas, can be hung form the taps, so the water runs through them while you are running your bath. Each bag can be used twice. Dry thoroughly after the first use, then use again before discarding the mixture ready for refilling. *Instead of herbs you can use the contents of a herby/fruity teabag as well as spices such as cinnamon and ginger as well as dried rosebuds and lavender. You can also buy ready made bags with drawstring top for this purpose.

To make one bag you will need:

  • Muslin square
  • lengths of ribbon or string
  • Powdered milk
  • *Mixed dried herbs
  • Oatmeal (if you can’t find oatmeal, grind porridge oats to a fine consistency in a blender)
  1. Cut a piece of muslin 10 x 15cm
  2. Fold in half lengthways and sew along the bottom and sides to make a bag. Trim the top with pinking shears. Turn inside out, so that the seams are on the inside.
  3. Mix together equal quantities of oatmala and powdered milk in a bowl. Add enough herbs to scent the mixture well.

4. Half fill the bag with the mix and tie the top with ribbon or string.
