Valentine’s Sweet Tub Tea


bathValentine’s Day is next Sunday and I am super excited. I plan on making sugar cookies and frosting them with pink frosting and spending the rest of my weekend lounging in my chair with a book and a warm cup of tea. The perfect addition to my weekend plans would be a bath with a fabulous tub tea. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite tub teas! Give it a try and you will see why it is my favorite!

Weighing the Natrasorb.

Combine the Epsom Salt, Milk Powder and Natrasorb in a mixing bucket or bag. Mix thoroughly. Add the desired fragrances and mix again. Add the Calendula Petals and Rose Buds. I found that the best way to have smaller particles of the Rose Buds and Petals was to rub them between my hands to crush before adding to the pail. 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.

Notes:
I like to mix this in a 1 gallon pail with a lid. I put the lid on and shake the bucket. This recipe was fun to make and it filled 7 Large Heat & Seal Tea Bags. I did find that I preferred to lightly crush the Rose Buds to break up the buds before mixing.

The photos for this batch may look like I made more that what the recipe shows. That is because I did! I quadrupled the recipe when I made it for the swap and that is when I took the pictures.

How would you change this recipe? Would you change the fragrances, botanicals or something else? I would love to hear what you would do with this recipe!
