Tea isn’t just for drinking—it can also be a part of your mindful beauty practice.
You can use tea to create a luxurious bath experience. You simply mix a few ingredients together, fill a muslin bag, and let your tea bag soak in your next bath. Or you can use string to hang the muslin bag under the waterspout so the tea defuses as the tub fills with hot water. The herbs and other mindful ingredients will help heal and nourish your skin.
