Instructions

  • Clip a piece of string approximately 4 inches long. Tuck inside your tea bag and use an iron to seal the tea bag shut.
  • Make the label by cutting a small strip of paper and folding it over the loose end of the string. Use a glue stick to affix it.
  • Tuck 4 or 5 tea bags into a metal tin for a last minute holiday gift.
  • To use, hook one or two tea bags over the tap while you run your bath, letting the water flow through the bag. When you’re done, simply toss the bag in the trash.

Notes

I recommend choosing ingredients with your recipient in mind, since allergies and skin irritation are so rampant these days. Things like citrus peels, dried flowers, ylang-ylang, cedar, jasmine, sandalwood, cinnamon and mint are a good place to start and make for a relaxing soak. But by all means, mix and match ingredients you already have and don’t be afraid to have some fun with it!
Here's where to find the heat-sealable tea bags.
