Sleepy Time Bath Tea

Herbs and essential oils are combined to make this super relaxing sleepy time bath tea. Learn how to make it for yourself or to give as gifts. Like many of you, we’re winding down our school year and gearing up for summer. We have finished co-op and that means we’ve finished the bulk of our schooling for the year. Drama performances are this week and then graduation will be in a couple of weeks. It’s hard to believe that Gabriel (our third son) will be graduating this year. 

Each year I try to give each of our co-op moms a little something to tell them “thanks” for all they do to make co-op a success. This year I gave them sleepy time bath tea. It was a hit. So, I thought I’d share the “recipe” with you.

I gave each mom a 1/2 pint size mason jar of the bath tea and a muslin drawstring bag that had the tea already in it. I purchased the bags from Mercy House Kenya which is a pretty amazing ministry helping young women and their babies in Nairobi. They are a little more expensive than buying drawstring bags at Walmart or on Amazon but totally worth it. 

Here’s how to make your own relaxing bath tea.

3/4 cup Epsom salt
4 tbsp dried chamomile
4 tbsp dried rose petals
15 drops lavender essential oil

Put about 1/4 cup Epsom salt in a bowl and add lavender essential oil. Mix well. Add rest of Epsom salt, chamomile and rose petals. Mix well.

To use: Put about 4 tbsp in a muslin drawstring bag and tie shut. Hang bag from water spout while filling tub with warm water. Enjoy!

    Thanks Angi – that looks like a great recipe, and I also think it is admirable using the Kenyan bags to support a worthy cause (maybe I am biased because I was born there! 🙂 )
    All the best to you

      How cool that you were born in Kenya! We have dear friends who grew up there so Kenya is close to our hearts. Thanks for stopping by.
