Oatmeal Bath Teas

February 01, 2015


Nedolgo nazaj sem v tej objavi omenila doma narejene čajne kopeli in kar nekaj izmed vas je zanimalo kako sem jih naredila. Prvotno sem jih naredila za prijateljico, a ker so na koncu izpadle tako prisrčno, sem jih nekaj naredila še zase. Najprej sem imela v mislih, da bi kopeli naredila iz blaga in jih zvezala skupaj z vrvico, kot jih naredim za doma, enako kot Sarah. No, na koncu pa sem navdih našla tukaj. Še posebej prav mi je prišel "pravilen" način zlaganja čajnih vrečk.
Za čaj za kopel torej potrebujete prazne čajne vrečke, ovsene kosmiče, sol in različna zelišča oziroma rože, kot sta naprimer sivka in vrtnica. Prazne čajne filtre sem našla v Müllerju, vzela sem velikost L.
Najprej naredite mešanico iz ovsenih kosmičev, morske soli in posušenih rož. Lahko uporabite tudi eterična olja, naprimer eterično olje sivke skupaj s posušenimi cvetovi sivke. Jaz jih nisem uporabila in posledično kopel tudi ne diši oziroma zelo malo. Enkrat sem jih sicer uporabila v kopeli a ker sem dobila alergično reakcijo, se eteričnim oljem raje izogibam in jih večinoma ne uporabljam v svojih izdelkih za nego telesa. Večino izdelkov pa naredim kar malo na približno, zato spet nimam točnih navodil in količine, a v eni kopeli je največ ovsenih kosmičev. V razmerju z morsko soljo nekje 3:2, torej tri žlice ovsenih kosmičev (celih in zdrobljenih) in dve žlice soli. Posušenih cvetov pa je približno ena žlica. Cvetove sem tudi zdrobila in natrgala na manjše dele. Tako, mešanica je pripravljena, zdaj pa je na vrsti le še priprava čajnih vrečkic.
Na zgornjih fotografijah lahko vidite način zlaganja čajne vrečke. Mislim, da navodila niso potrebna, vrečko le napolnite, a ne preveč, da slučajno ne poči, in nato zložite. Za čajne vrečke potrebujete še tanko vrvico in listek na katerega napišite ime kopeli. Nato le še vse skupaj spnite: listek + vrvico in nato vrvico + čajno vrečko. Finito! :)

Not long ago I mentioned my DIY bath teas and some of you were interested how I made them, so here you have it. :) As I said, I made them for my friend, but in the end I really liked how they turned out so I made a few for myself too. At first I was thinking of making just my standard "teas" with cloth and a small rope wrapped around them, something similar to Sarah's oat bath soaks, but in the end I found this post. It especially came in handy when it was time to fold the tea bags. :)
So for these lovely bath teas you need tea bags (I got mine in Müller), oats, sea salt and dried flowers - I used lavender and rose. 

Now, the first thing you need to do is mix the ingredients - oats, sea salt and dried flowers. You can also add matching essential oils, if you want your bath teas to have stronger scents. I didn't use them because I don't feel comfortable using them. One time I added a few drops of essential oil to my bath and I got an allergic reaction. So I usually don't use essential oils in my DIY skincare products. Better safe than sorry. :) Unfortunately I don't have exact measurements, like usual, but you really can't mess this up. Just to give you a slight reference, I used about three tablespoons of oats and two tablespoons of coarse sea salt. And about one tablespoon of dried flowers, that I kinda mushed together in my hands. 

Okay, so now you just have to fill your tea bags and fold them together. I think my instructions aren't needed, just look at the photos marked with numbers from 1 to 4 and you'll see how it's done. Easy, yet so impressive. :) Then write the name of the product on a little piece of paper and staple everything together. Finito, your bath teas are complete! :)


Have a wonderful Sunday!
