Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Critic Acid
1 Cup Epsom Salt
4 TBS Shea Butter (melted)
4 Tea Bags of your choosing, I choose Honey, Vanilla and Chamomile. Use 2 for dry mix and 2 for outside of Cruffle..
2 tsp Vanilla.

Mix all dry ingredients together and melt Shea Butter.
 Slowly pour Shea Butter in dry ingredients 1 TBS at a time, mixing with your hands. 
When you can squeeze mixture and it makes a ball and holds it shape.. 
It should be a cookie dough consistency, roll into ball and on plate pour the other 2 packets of tea on plate and round Cruffle in it. 
Put in dry cool area for about 2 days.

There you have it..

CRUFFLES!!!! 


Mind you it's a little messy in the tub but the smell alone will make you forget ..

1/2 Cup Chamomile Tea

Oatmeal- soothes and nourishes, moisturizes, helps remove dead skin.
Baking Soda- softens skins.
Powdered Milk- smooths and softens skin..  

Mix all together..


Smooth out Coffee Filter.


Add 1/4 cup of mixture in C/F.


Fold length way..


Fold C/F over, again.


Fold like an envelop to close..


Make your own labels and staple together.. 


You should be able to make 10 Bath Teas.

I use 2 Bath Teas at a time. You can use one if you like. 
These are also great for Gifts..
