Bathtub Teabags
First, decide what scented ingredients you want to use:

  • Dried rose buds are perfect before a romantic date.
  • Dried lavender and loose chamomile tea are relaxing before bedtime.
  • A spice blend such as cinnamon, cloves and rosemary can help energize you before a night on the town.

250 mL (1 cup) old-fashioned oatmeal
250 mL (1 cup) Epsom salt
250 mL (1 cup) scented ingredients (roses, spices, soap shavings or lavender)
6 coffee filters
Needle and thread, or a stapler or twine

Tip: Making tub tea is a resourceful way to use up old slivers of soap as well as shavings from soap carving.


  1. Prepare your scented ingredients. If using roses, cut off the heads of the roses. Use a hammer to smash the bases of unopened rose buds to help release the oils, or to gently crack open spices
  2. In a bowl, combine scented ingredients with oatmeal and salt
  3. Place 125 mL (1/2 cup) of the tub tea mix in the centre of a coffee filter. Fold in the sides, and then fold up the bottom. Stitch closed at the top with a needle and thread. Staple or tie tightly if preferred. Repeat with remaining tub tea mix and coffee filters
  4. Place them in a basket by your tub to enjoy, or use them as gifts — they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day and make great baby and bridal shower favours

Tip: You can also store the mix in a large, covered jar and scoop it out as needed. For easy steeping, simply fill a tea ball with the loose mix and hang it from your tub faucet.

Like the idea of the mixes and using a teaball dangling from the tap is an excellent idea, no bags, no waste and reusable.

You know, I've often wondered what to do with all those shavings after an afternoon spent whitling my bars of soap. At present, I have several bushels of the stuff. Thanks for the inspiration! Won't my family be delighted at Christmas. (And wait until they receive my soap sculptures!)

I love the idea of the tea bath bags especially the lavender and will be trying it as soon as my lavender blooms this summer.
