Instructions

  • Grind the oatmeal into a fine powder using a blender, coffee grinder or Magic Bullet.
  • In a large glass bowl, mix 1/2 cup oatmeal with the hibiscus petals, dried lemon rind and salts. Mix thoroughly. If you'd like a deeper pink colour, add your beet powder during this step.
  • Add the essential oils and mix again.
  • Scoop the tub tea mixture into reusable muslin bags or tea bags. Tie tightly.
  • Place the tub tea bags in a hot bath and allow to steep for a few minutes before using. You can also place the tea bag directly under the running bathwater. The water should be hot enough to steep the tea, but be sure to test the temperature again before climbing in the tub.

  • Clean up is simple. Place the contents of the tub tea into your compost or organics bin. Be sure to wash and reuse your muslin bags!
