  • In a large glass bowl, mix 1/2 cup powdered milk with the cacao tea, dried rose petals and salts. Mix well.
  • Add the essential oils and thoroughly mix your ingredients again.
  • Scoop the tub tea mixture into reusable muslin bags or tea bags. Tie tightly. Alternatively, you can store your tub tea in mason jars and scoop the tub tea into your muslin bags shortly before use. This is an ideal way to gift your tub tea as the recipient can enjoy the beauty of the dried roses before using their tub tea. Just add a bow to your mason jars for gifting.
  • To use, steep your tea for a few minutes in hot bathwater before using. You can also place the tea bag directly under the running bathwater if you prefer. The water should be hot enough to steep the tea, but be sure to test the temperature again before climbing in the tub.
  • After use, place the contents of the tub tea into your compost or organics bin. Wash and reuse your muslin bags again for your next bath!


While this tub tea is likely safe for most, some people may be allergic to one or more ingredients. Always use essential oils with caution, and to be safe, consult your health care provider before using any DIY skin products, especially if you have sensitive skin. If you suffer from any health condition such as high or low blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult with your doctor before using salt baths.
