Expensive Bath Made Luxuriously Affordable
The other day, while sipping a piping hot mug of my favorite lavender tea, I thought about how soothingly delicious it would be to use tea ingredients in a hot bath. I looked online to find that bath teas do indeed exist. And they are very pricey. So since I already have a cupboard full of various awesome herbal teas, I decided to do myself a favor and marinate in a bath of my favorite teas.
Not only did I smell wonderful after my bath, but my skin felt great! I wasn't sure my dry skin would be much improved by my tea bath, but it really helped.
So here is your recipe to a sensuous soak in the tub: Take three or four of your favorite tea bags and put them in a comfortably warm bath as it fills. I recommend the Yogi brand. Then slide in! I also recommend soaking with lights off and candles lit. Since I find it hard to relax, I often have a crafting magazine or a good book at my fingertips (nothing too exciting or emotional--you want to relax and enjoy).
