I got home from Alt Summit yesterday afternoon after spending 4 days schmoozing, socializing, meeting with sponsors, and speaking to the (huge) crowd. I promptly decided that I needed some serious relaxation before the week begins.
In the January issue of Martha Stewart’s Living, they had a quick little idea to put a eucalyptus sprig in tea paper for a quick bath sachet. I liked the idea, but didn’t love it. Firstly, who has tea paper? Not me. Secondly, why not perk up the ingredients a tad?
I decided that there was a much easier and all-over better way to go about this using coffee filters and a few additional ingredients – lemon and mint. There are a few other combinations that I think would be awesome as well.
- Coffee Filter
- Sachet Filler:
- Lemon zest
Other filler ideas:
- Grapefruit Zest
- Powdered Milk or Honey
- Ground Oats
- Lemon Verbena
ONE gather a small pile of your filler in the center of a coffee filter. TWO tie it up into a little sack with string THREE package in an old tea tin for gifting
Why not make a whole bunch as Valentines gifts for your friends? These darling little indulgent treats that will pamper those closest to you and show them that you care. If you’d like the printable label – click here for the template.
