Relaxing Herbal Tub Tea

These little tub tea bags are so cute!

For this craft we wanted to make a spa gift that wasn't in a bottle or a jar. Turns out, nine pretty tub teas fit perfectly in a cigar box! 

Materials & Embellishments
Pretty cigar box, 6"x7"x3"
9 gold organza favor bags, 3" wide
Florentine paper, 5"x6"
Ivory paper, 31/2"x41/2"
Red organdy ribbon, 28" long, 1" wide
Dried lavender flowers, 11/4 cup
Dried chamomile flowers, 11/4 cup
Chamomile Roman essential oil, 30 drops
Ylang Ylang essential oil, 10 drops

Tools & Supplies
Glue stick
Ultra fine black Sharpie
Measuring cup

1. To create the relaxing herbal tub tea, combine the lavender flowers and chamomile flowers in a bowl. Add 30 drops of chamomile roman essential oil and 10 drops of ylang ylang essential oil to the mixture and stir with a spoon.

2. Make 9 tea bags by filling each organza favor bag with 3 tablespoons of the lavender and chamomile tub tea. Arrange the tea bags 3 across by 3 deep in the cigar box.

3. To make the instruction card, print the instructions for using the tub tea on the center of the ivory paper. Glue the ivory instructions page to the center of the Florentine paper with the rubber cement. Lay the instruction sheet on top of the tea bags.

4. Close the lid and tie the red organdy ribbon around the cigar box.

Relaxing Herbal Tub Tea Instructions: Drop a tea bag into your bath. Ease yourself into the warm water and relax. For a more intense aroma, use three tea bags.

Crafty Shopping Tip: You can buy empty cigar boxes for a dollar or two at cigar shops like Tinder Box.
