I wanted more than just eucalyptus though, so I went to a local health food store and bought some dried lavender and dried rose petals. I got the tea bags at Cost Plus World Market (random) but I couldn't find them at a grocery store.
The process was simple; put the dried stuff in a tea bag and tie with a string. I made a loop so I could hang it over the bath faucet.
Hang the sachet over the faucet and draw a nice hot bath. And then be disappointed because instead of the rich, fragrant, bouquet-of-flowers bath you thought you’d have, it smells like water. The sachets didn’t do anything! I even hung up two, one with roses and one with eucalyptus.
Maybe the water was infused with their herbal properties and I just didn’t notice, but overall I have to say this one was a bust Martha!
However, I did have a lovely bath on a cold snowy day, and now I can use the other sachets I made as potpourri, or throw them in my fabric dresser, so it all worked out in the end! And I just got the February issue of Martha Stewart and it is chock full of great crafts and recipes!
Make sure you check back the end of the week, I have an awesome project to share!
Thanks for reading!
