DIY Bathtub Teabags

Sit back and enjoy a relaxing bath after you make a few personalized bathtub teabags.

Bathtub Teabags
First, decide what scented ingredients you want to use:

  • Dried rose buds are perfect before a romantic date.
  • Dried lavender and loose chamomile tea are relaxing before bedtime.
  • A spice blend such as cinnamon, cloves and rosemary can help energize you before a night on the town.

1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup Epsom salt
1 cup scented ingredients (roses, spices, soap shavings or lavender)
6 coffee filters
Needle and thread, or a stapler or twine

Tip: Making tub tea is a resourceful way to use up old slivers of soap as well as shavings from soap carving.


  1. Prepare your scented ingredients. If using roses, cut off the heads of the roses. Use a hammer to smash the bases of unopened rose buds to help release the oils, or to gently crack open spices
  2. In a bowl, combine scented ingredients with oatmeal and salt
  3. Place 1/2 cup of the tub tea mix in the center of a coffee filter. Fold in the sides, and then fold up the bottom. Stitch closed at the top with a needle and thread. Staple or tie tightly if preferred. Repeat with remaining tub tea mix and coffee filters
  4. Place them in a basket by your tub to enjoy, or use them as gifts — they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day and make great baby and bridal shower favors

Tip: You can also store the mix in a large, covered jar and scoop it out as needed. For easy steeping, simply fill a tea ball with the loose mix and hang it from your tub faucet.
