Who needs a bubble bath? Try tea instead

Posted by

Did you know tea can be used in the bath? It's true! Many teas are great for your skin, and provide benefits through aromatherapy.

What kind of tea can I use?

Take chamomile for instance. It's an herb long-known for its ability to soothe muscles, treat skin irritations and promote healthy, restful sleep - perfect for the bath! (SquirrelDuck's Sleepyhead tea contains pure organic chamomile!)

Rose petals are another great ingredient for the bath. Rosewater soothes irritated skin, brightens your complexion and tightens pores for a smooth appearance. It also smells heavenly.

Spearmint, another common tea, has disinfecting and aromatic qualities. (SquirrelDuck's Rose Coloured Glasses tea contains all three of the above ingredients, all organic - a perfect bath blend.)

But it's not only herbs that can be added to the bath. Green tea is also a popular choice for a bath soak. Green tea can help reduce muscle pain. It's also soothing and softening for the skin, helping to relieve redness. Because it's loaded with antioxidants, a green tea soak can also have wonderful anti-aging effects, helping your skin to recover from environmental irritants.

How do I add tea to my bath?

Though the image of a bath scattered with rose petals sounds romantic, no one really wants wet leaves sticking to their skin (ick). Use a closed infuser (like this cute Tugboat) or a reusable cotton tea bag instead. Simply fill with tea and close, add it to your bath for the duration of your bath, and then empty and rinse to use again another day.
