Soak your way to serendipity … bath tea bags for the stressed out wicche

Mariah “I sing with the dolphins” Carey has fessed up about taking baths in milk, a la Cleopatra, and  “just call me Madge” Madonna posted a video of herself in a bath full of basil (I just hope it’s not hiding a secret like Isabella’s pot of basil … If you don’t know about that one, give it a google).

I’m not sure, but maybe it’s because the evenings are getting a little darker, the weather is getting a little chillier, and even the hardiest wicche starts to think a pampering soak could be quite sublime, daaaahling …

If you want to put yourself together a nice sachet to languish in, it’s a fairly easy and inexpensive thing to do. I sourced some nice little muslin drawstring bags from the Devil’s Work Ebay, but you can make your own with cheesecloth if you feel like being homespun … Also, I have to admit it took me a fair while to find the right thing. Who would have thought that it would be such a difficult task? I swear I go to bed at night, and all of the things I’ve been trying to source that day go through my mind like they’re on a never-ending conveyor belt …
