Lavender Oatmeal Tub Tea Christmas Gifts

This week for family night we made a few DIY spa gifts to give to the kids' teachers, church group leaders, girl scout leaders, and the other adults that help them out in various ways each week. Our first projects was Lavender Oatmeal Tub Tea.

This tub tea was easy for the girls to make. The ingredients are simply poured together into a large bowl and then mixed.

The girls each took turns helping me add the ingredients into the bowl and stirring it well.

Then the tea mixture was scooped into small tea bags and stapled shut. These small sized tea bags were the perfect height to fit into a ziplock snack sized bag. Three tea bags fit neatly into one snack bag.

Lavender Oatmeal Tub Tea Recipe

2 cups epsom salts
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup powdered milk
20 drops lavender essential oil
tea filters, size 2

Mix the salts, oatmeal, powdered milk, and essential oil in a large bowl. Scoop the mixture into empty tea filter bags and staple shut. This recipe made 32 filters. 

For gift giving place 3 of the filters into snack sized ziplock bags. Add in a holiday label and seal.

I created small labels to slip inside of each bag so it would be ready for gift giving!
