I was surfing around the web tonight looking at different pagan sites and happened upon this little recipe. I tried in my bath, and it's really wonderful! Enjoy!


Green Tea Bath Bag

Serves/Yields: 1 bag
Prep. Time:
Cook Time:
Category: Bath & Body
Difficulty: Easy

Introduction
The green tea leaves are a mild sloughing agent. The comfrey or calendula add a soothing touch. The resultů.Silky skin!
Ingredients
1 cup loose leaf green tea
1 cup calendula or comfrey
4 to 6 drops rose, lavender, ylang ylang, or bergamot essential oil (actually any favorite oil will work)

Directions
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and fill sachets made from loosely woven 100% cotton gauze (available at craft stores). Tie tops with string or ribbon. To use, hold under the running tap of a tub until tub is half full, and squeeze several times to release the fragrance. Rub the tea bag gently over your body, paying special attention to elbows and knees and any other rough spots. Allow the bag to float in the tub to add its skin-softening properties to the water.
