The last two weeks have been brutal on my skin.  We were at the edge of the polar vortex, and we had temperatures below zero with the lowest wind chill at -30 degrees!


We burn wood for heat, which makes the air very dry.  We had a fire going pretty much all day and night for a few weeks, so the house was crazy dry.


We were putting water back in the air with a cool mist humidifier in the bedrooms and living room, but it wasn't enough.  My daughter and I were scratching constantly from dry skin.

We used lotions and oils, and I made this lavender and chamomile bath tea DIY for dry skin.  This recipe is easy to make, and you can make several bath teas at once to save for later.


Tub tea recipes are a great way to relax while you soothe your dry and irritated skin.  Herbal bath tea recipes are great for your skin, and they are very easy to make.


Lavender Chamomile Bath Tea Recipe for Dry Skin


I selected each ingredient for this lavender and chamomile tub tea recipe for its benefits for dry skin.  I'll also give you other options to use if you want to swap out some of the ingredients.


This tub tea recipes will make about 6 tub tea bags.  


How Do You Make Herbal Bath Tea?


To make herbal bath tea recipes, you will need dried herbs.  You will usually add either sea salt or Epsom salts.  I also added a dried milk and baking soda.


How Do You Use Herbal Bath Tea?


Since this bath tea DIY has dried herbs in it, it has to be placed inside a tea bag.  Otherwise, you could risk clogging your drain.  


Simply place the dry ingredients into a large empty tea bag.  Then place the tub tea recipes in the bag in the bath water as you fill the tub. 


The dried herbs make a bath tea recipe, and the other ingredients dissolve and mix with the water.





What Herbs Can I put in my Bath?


I used lavender and chamomile for herbal bath tea recipes because they are good for dry or irritated skin.  You can also use one of the following dried herbs:



What Should I Put in my Bath Tea?


You can use just herbs to make herbal bath tea recipes if you'd like.  I added sea salt, baking soda, and essential oils to my bath tea recipe.


What Are the Benefits of a Tea Bath?


That depends on what you use in your tub tea recipes.  Each dried herb has its own benefits for skin.  Salts also have unique benefits, so choose the best ones for your needs when making a bath tea DIY.


How Do You Make Bath Tea?


Making herbal bath tea recipes is very easy.  Simply combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and spoon into empty tea bags.


Sea Salt


Some tub tea recipes use Epsom salts, and I normally do use them for the extra magnesium, but I think sea salt is better for dry skin.


Sea salt is mined from the sea.  When the salt water evaporates, this is what's left over.  It's high in minerals, and the mineral content depends upon where it came from.


Most sea salts are high in potassium, which can help promote healthy skin.  The sodium can boost circulation of lymphatic fluid.


Sea salt does have some magnesium in it.  It helps promote cellular turnover and makes the skin more permeable to keep the skin hydrated.


You can use Epsom salts for your herbal bath tea recipes.  Use the same amount of Epsom salts as I do sea salt.

Powdered Milk


I like adding powdered milk to my bath tea DIY because it has key benefits for your skin.  I used powdered cow's milk, but you can use powdered goat's milk too.


For a vegan option, use powdered coconut milk.  It's great for skin, but it does smell like coconuts.  It smells really good, but it may not smell great with the herbs and essential oils.


Milk is said to cleanse your skin to help it look better.  It can also help boost cellular turnover and boost collagen production.


Vitamin B6 in milk powder moisturizes the skin while the vitamin A promote cellular turnover.


I think the milk powder gives herbal bath tea recipes a boost for your skin, but it's optional to use.


Baking Soda


Baking soda is optional for bath tea DIY, but I use it because I have hard water.  It helps soften water and gives the water more slip.  It also helps exfoliate the skin for better looking skin.


The baking soda dissolves in herbal bath tea recipes and mixes with the water.  It can leak out of the tea bag, so if you are selling these, test your tea bags.


Dried Lavender


I added dried lavender because it smells amazing and has skin benefits, especially for dry skin.  Lavender is naturally anti-inflammatory, so it can soothe irritated skin.


Lavender can help you calm down and relax, so I like adding it to bath products.


Dried Chamomile


Chamomile is my favorite herb for irritated skin.  It's naturally anti-inflammatory to help soothe your irritated skin when you use it in a bath tea DIY.  It's high in antioxidants to promote younger looking skin.


I grow my own chamomile.  It's so easy to grow.  Just plant it and forget it until it's time to pick off the buds to dry.  I've even had it come up the the next year before I could even plant the seeds.


If you want to use different herbs for your tub tea recipes, just swap them out in the amounts.

Essential Oils 


I used helichrysum for this bath tea DIY, but you can also use lavender, German chamomile, or frankincense.


Helichrysum is a gentle oil, so it's a great essential oil to use for sensitive or irritated skin.  It can actually moisturize your skin without making your skin oily.





It promotes cellular turnover and is naturally anti-inflammatory.  It's also antibacterial, which is important when you've been scratching your skin.

You can also use lavender essential oil.  Like the herb, it's anti-inflammatory.  It also helps moisturize and soothe dry skin in a bath tea DIY.


Frankincense has healing properties.  If you've scratched your skin, this is a good oil to use to promote healing.


German chamomile essential oil can help calm red or itchy skin.  It's a good skin for dry skin because it can help soothe your skin and reduce redness and itching, and it's gentle for irritated skin.


Tea Bags for Herbal Bath Tea Recipes


You could add herbal bath tea recipes directly to your bath, but the herbs can make a mess.  We have a septic system, so I don't want the herbs to do down the drain.


I used the tea bags I use to make my herbal infusions and bath tea DIY recipes.  


You can also find tea bags with a drawstring on Etsy.


Bath Tea Recipe Ingredients



Bath Tea Recipe Directions


STEP #1


Combine the sea salt, powdered milk, baking soda, lavender, and chamomile in a bowl.



STEP #2


Add the essential oils and stir well.



STEP #3


Spoon 4 tablespoons of the tub tea into an empty tea bag.



Some of the baking soda and powdered milk will go through the tea bag, so you'll want to store these in a bowl or something that will catch the powder.  It's not extremely messy, but I wouldn't leave them on a shelf or in a drawer.

Drop a bag in the tub, fill the water, and enjoy a relaxing bath.  When you're done, remove the tea bag and toss it.


I like filling the bags and storing them for when I need them.  You can also mix it up and put it in a jar and fill the bags as you need them.
