Home-Made Herbal Bath Tea Bags

Today was the last day of the school year, and like many people, we enjoyed making a little home made gift to thank our teachers for all their hard work. This year the children have had lots of fun making Herbal Bath Tea Bags. We used little muslin drawstring bags, which the kids decorated with stamps using our washable, home made fabric paint - we love how they turned out, and even stamped little cards to match.

 

Home made presents are such a lovely thing to give and receive, and are perfect for teacher appreciation gifts, hostess gifts or to pop into home made hampers. They are also a fabulous way to get children involved. These Bath Tea Bags are such fun to make, and can be tailored to suit the recipient.

We have been learning lots about herbs and their uses over the last few months. There are so many plants that have a positive action on your skin, making them perfect to use in bath products. Our 21 Botanicals that are fabulous for your skin post doesn't cover every single one, but will certainly give you a good starting point if you'd like to learn a little more.

We have 2 sizes of these little bags, so decided to make two different herbal mixtures to fill them. For the bigger bags we made a relaxation soak, and for the tiny ones we put together a beautiful skin renewal mix.

Our Relax mix combines Oats, Hops, Lavender and Chamomile to sooth and moisturise the skin, and would be perfect to have as a relaxing soak at the end of a hard day, or just before bed to promote a fabulous night's sleep.

While our Renew mix contains Linden Flowers, Meadowsweet, Hibiscus, Lemon Verbena, Chamomile, Rose, Honeysuckle, Red Clover and Calendula for their beautifying, and anti-aging properties, as well as their wonderful fragrance.

We then popped all our bath tea bags into a  larger cotton bag, with our home-made cards and a little note telling our recipients about what is in their gift - It is important to always provide a list of ingredients for all home-made gifts in case of any sensitivities.

All the children's teachers looked delighted with their home-made bath tea bags, and we think it's a lovely way to show our appreciation for everything they do. For more home-made gift inspiration why not check out our Rosemary and Peppermint Foot Scrub, or our wonderful Bath Fizzes.
