Making tub tea sachets is fun, easy, and inexpensive! They can be used for the bathtub, a foot bath, the dryer, lingerie drawers, and the list goes on! You could even throw one into an envelope to mail to a friend!

Join my daughter, Abigail, and me as we show you how to make your own botanical bathtub tea at home!
