Bath salts have always been considered a great gift giving option (hello Mother’s Day!). But who wants to get the same old bath products over and over again, am I right or am I right? When I was younger (maybe around 8th grade), I dreaded holiday gift giving with friends for the pure fact that I knew when all was said and done I would possess enough Bath & Body Works products to open up my own store.
It’s been some time since I received a Bath & Body product (no one get any ideas!), and I no longer have so much hatred for bath products gifts. I think when they are home-made, well thought out, or unique, they make a great gift, especially for a holiday centered around pampering (like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day or a birthday). These bath salt “tea bags” fit the bill perfectly! They are easy to make, smell heavenly, look pretty and they sure are unique.
To make the bath salt “tea bags” you will need- regular coffee filters, epsom salt (you can also use scented bath salts), dried lavender (or other pretty smelling flowers), a spoon (to scoop in the epsom salt and dried flowers), twine (I like to use baker’s twine) and scissors.
2. Spoon 2 tablespoons of epsom salt (or bath salts) in to the middle of the filters.
To use- Run a bath with hot water. Place 1 or 2 “tea bags” in and let steep for about 10 minutes before getting in. It will last about an hour before all the salt is dissolved from the bag, so if you choose to you can leave the bag in the tub with you or you can discard it. Either way, relax and enjoy!
