Tea For Your Tub?

If you love to relax and unwind after a long day with a hot cup of tea, why not pamper your body with an herb and flower filled tea bag for your warm bath? When I stumbled across these bath teas from Aquarian Soul + Earth Oils on the Urban Outfitters website, I knew I wanted to give them a try. I mean, who doesn't love soaking in a warm, scented bath and purifying their body? And for just $4 a pop what did I have to lose?

Well, unfortunately these bath teas just didn't live up to my expectations. I bought both the New Moon and Full Moon varieties and tried them separately during Sunday pamper sessions. They both smelled lovely when you held the pouches in your hands but the fragrances were much more potent in their dry form than wet. New Moon had a lemony chamomile scent whereas Full Moon smelled of lavender and rose. Personally, I preferred the Full Moon scent but neither one really gave a strong fragrance to either the water or my body. I didn't experience any skin benefits and the bath teas didn't change the color of the water. Honestly, I just felt like they didn't really do anything.

Which is sad because for slightly more I could have gotten a bath bomb from LUSH that would not only give off some serious fragrance but would moisturize my skin, fizz or create bubbles. Live and learn, I guess. As much as I love the concept of herbal bath teas, I just don't think they're for me.

What do you think of the concept? Have you tried any bath teas? Any recommendations for bath products I should try? You know I love to get my weekend pamper on.
