Sweet Milky Tub Tea


Completely mixed milky tub tea!

Completely mixed milky tub tea!

Baths are a rare treat for me. I don’t often have time to enjoy one fully so instead I skip through the shower. So when I discovered I have an upcoming weekend where my time hadn’t been scheduled, I penciled in a personal spa day. These days are where I go full out and treat myself. These little spa days are where I paint my nails, apply lots of lotion and actually take more than 5 minutes to do my hair.

In my excitement for my spa day, I went through all of my nail polish, soaps, lotions, etc. It is now organized and beautiful. I also came across one pouch of this tub tea. My cat, Leo, who up to that point had been supervising the cataloging with studied disinterest, perked up when I open the ziplock bag holding this tub tea. I don’t know what it is about this tub tea, but the cat approves. I think if he could get away with it, he would have a sachet of his own!

Today I wanted to remake this lovely tub tea not only to replenish my stash but also to share this phenomenal recipe. Andee has created a number of fantastic tub teas but I must admit, I think this is my favorite.  (See the original post here.) I will be sending a number of sachets of this tub tea to our shipping department. Request one in your next order! It is a must try!

Adding the fragrances.

Adding the fragrances.

Combine the Epsom Salt, Milk Powder and Natrasorb in a mixing bucket or bag. Mix thoroughly. Add the desired fragrances and mix again. Make sure to break up any lumps that may have formed when the fragrance was added. Add the Calendula Petals and crushed Rose Buds. One easy way to crush the Rose Buds is to rub them between the hands. Mix well. After the ingredients have been mixed together, fill each Large Heat & Seal Tea Bag with 1 ounce of the tub tea mixture. Seal with the iron.
