I love adding stuff to my baths, but bath bombs only lead to my eventual misery. Epsom salts are AWESOME to throw into a bath (it’s not just all in your head, your body actually absorbs the magnesium, which helps relax you and makes you sleep better) until you find yourself sitting on a pile of undissolved epsom salts. And if I have to end my relaxing bath by straining wet lavender flowers out of the tub, I may as well have never taken a relaxing bath. Enter my solution: tea bags! Lavender bath soak tea bags! (Sidenote: Remember a world before Amazon Prime when you couldn’t find literally whatever you had an idea for, like empty tea bags, and then have it on your doorstep two days later? Yeah. We live in some crazy times.)
The epsom salts and lavender in these tea bags will help soak away your anxiety, winter blues, or memories of that epic fight about a flat iron you just had with your tweenager.
The coconut oil will help keep your skin from drying out, and when you’re done, all you have to do is toss the bag and you’re done!
Carefully open an empty tea bag and add epsom salts,
and coconut oil capsules.
Carefully pull the strings to close.
Store in an airtight bag until ready to use.
Toss 1-2 into a hot bath and enjoy! Be careful not to squeeze them too hard or handle them too much (unless you’re using reusable tea bags),
Make a large batch of these Lavender Bath Soak Tea Bags and keep them handy for when you need a relaxing bath or give them as gifts!
