Tub Teas

If you're searching for the perfect gift for Mom this Mother's Day,why not give her something handmade such as these soothing tub teas.
Nothing relaxes like a good long soak, especially one coupled with a heady infusion of calming scents.

You need Epsom salt/coarse sea salt/measuring cup/scissors/cheese cloth/essential oil

How to

Pour 2 cups Epsom salt,1 cup coarse sea salt, and 1 cup of dried lavender,rosemary or lemon verbena into bowl and mix well

Cut two 8x12 inch rectangles from cheese cloth and stack the rectangles on top of each other. Pour 1/2 cup of salt/herb mixture on top of cut cheese cloth,slightly off center toward one of the 8 inch sides. Fold the 12 inch edges into the center,covering the mixture. Fold cheesecloth in half,matching the 8 inch edges. Gather cheesecloth around mixture and secure with a piece of waxed twine. Attach gift tag to the end of the wax twine.

Tip: to make scent last longer,add a few drops of essential oil
