    This was very easy and delightful. I did try to follow the advice of LonghornMama and used a tea ball, but the tea flowers still escaped. I then proceded to strain the water which took awhile and was not 100%. Nevertheless, the water was wonderful and soothing.

    Very pretty, smells wonderful and cheap ingredients. So pleasant and relaxing in the bath. However, the loose tea floats around the tub and sticks to you, kind of like big flecks of dirt. Next time I'll either put the salts in a cloth pouch or tea ball so that the lovely fragrance can steep out into the bath and leave the tea leaves behind. Thanks, Lennie, I'll make this one again!

    I made six batches and added 5-6 drops of different colors of food coloring to each, then dried for about fifteen minutes in a slow oven, occasionally stirring and then layered the different colors in a jar to create a 'seascape' design. The ladies in my life will surely appreciate this gift!
