Green Tea is good for your outsides too. I found this online and am posting for the Comfort Cafe. You can substitute Sea Salt for the Epsom Salts and as well, potpourri for flower petals.
- 1⁄2 cup epsom salts
- 2 tablespoons green tea leaves
- 1⁄4 cup dried rosemary
- 1⁄2 cup dried flower petals or 1⁄2 cup potpourri
- 2 tablespoons dried lemon zest or 2 tablespoons orange zest
- Combine ingredients in a large bowl.
- Place about 2 Tablepsoon of mixture in a 6" square of cheesecloth, tie tightly with string.
- Drop into your bath water, relax and enjoy the smell of rosemary and green tea.
This is a very nice bath salt. I used rose petals, because that was what I had. I also used the rosemary and some orange zest. Next time I think I may reduce the amount of orange zest...just a personal preference. I prefer the smell of flowers! Made for 123 Hit Wonders Tag.
Very, very lovely! The aroma is heavenly. I used equal parts lavender and rose petals, but for some reason I couldn't find my rosemary, so I did without that. Next time I make it, though, I think I will reduce the orange zest by half, or even omit it altogether... partly because I think the scent (without the rosemary to balance it) overpowered the florals, but mostly because I seemed to have a slight skin reaction to the citrus oil. Other than that, this yielded a perfectly wonderful bathing experience...just the thing I needed after a long and stressful week. I know I will make this often. Thanks for sharing it!
This smells exceptional! A lovely bath salt. I used dried lavender petals and bancha leaf green tea. I used epsom salts (not sea salt). I am sending some of this off to friends to enjoy, too. Thanks! Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game, 1/18/09.
