tub tea recipe?

Posted by sriston (My Page) on

I am wanting to try something new for the markets, and I was thinking about tub teas or bath teas. I have plenty of herbs, FO's and EO's. Can someone share a recipe that can be packaged and sold? I have ran across several recipes, but they aren't ready to use- in other words, they are targeted for personal use and not commercial sales. They all say to prepare the herbs and then when you are ready to use it, add your fragrance. I want something the customer can just take home and use without any further preparation. (I have half a jillion muslin bags and heat-sealable tea bags and I am trying to come up with ideas on how to use them.) Thanks a bunch.

Thank you, Hazel!

RE: tub tea recipe?

Here's one I use that does pretty well (better in the winter months). Recipe below makes 12 jumbo tea bag sizes.

Restorative Herbal-Mineral Bath Tea:

1/4 cup Epsom Salt
1 cup Dead Sea Salt
1 1/2T Dendritic Salt (optional - it's supposed to help hold the fragrance longer in salts)
1/8 cup Rooibos (red tea found at Health Food Stores)
15 drops Peppermint E.O.
10 drops Tea Tree E.O.

Thanks, Jennifer. I am going to try this one, too. First I have to go to the Health Food store and buy that tea, and I don't know about those dendritic salts- I am unfamiliar with them. Since I don't have any, I may leave it out.
