Have you ever tried to make your own tub teas? What overworked mom doesn’t need to unwind and relax at the end of the day. I know that I do. After a day full of listening to roosters that won’t stop crowing, teenagers pestering me because they’re bored and phones that ring while you’re in the middle of cleaning the bathroom, I need a few minutes of relaxing down time. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

How to Make Your Own Tub Teas to Reduce Stress

A nice hot bath at the end of the day is a fantastic way to relax and unwind. I light an essential oil candle and close the door and try to block out the world for a few minutes. While I love bubble bath and bath salts, sometimes I want to relax with something a little bit different. When that happens, I make my own Tub Teas. They’re very simple to make and very simple to use.

Tub teas are a mixture of herbs with a base that you place in a fabric and toss in your bath tub while it’s filling up with hot water. The hot water mixes through the bag and releases the natural relaxing properties of the herbs and oils. There are many different varieties but this is the one that I use most often. I’ve listed a few different options so you can change it around if you like. I make enough for one or two *tea bags* at a time but you can make up a jar of it if you want so it’s ready whenever you want it.

Relaxing Tub Teas

1/2 cup of one of these items for a base (oatmeal, sea salt, Epsom salt, powdered milk). I generally use oatmeal because it’s the cheapest for me.

1 tablespoon of one of these dried herbs or mix and match if you want (lavender, chamomile, comfrey, calendula, mint). I love lavender and chamomile for their relaxing properties. Mint wakes me up.

Mix the ingredients well. You can put them in a glass jar at this point to use in the future. Take a muslin bag or square of cotton cloth and put the dry mixture into it as you want to use it.  Tie it up tightly with ribbon or string. Toss it into the bath while the hot water is running.

Take a few minutes out of your busy day today to do something for yourself.  Indulge in a few moments of prayer, a relaxing hot bath or a walk around the block.  You’ll be able to take care of your family better if you take care of yourself first.  I know as moms it’s too easy to get lost in all of the things we need to do for other people.  Taking a few minutes for yourself brings a balance to your life that will help you and your family in the long run.

    great ideas - I have never made something like this before but I have SO much oatmeal, and dried herbs and essential oils, so why not?

  4. This sounds so relaxing and luxurious. Thanks for sharing the "recipe"...I would love to try this out! Sounds like a great gift idea too. In fact, my sister in law made something similar to these for baby shower favors. They turned out really cute!
