Tea Bags As Aromatherapy

While doing some kitchen cabinet cleaning out, I was discarding expired seasonings which had lost their potency. I saved anything that could be recycled into a scentful fragrance. I also came across quite a few old open boxes of flavored tea bags and old bulk tea. I did try one and it just had lost its wonderful flavor. I thought I would set them aside and I put about three tea bags in my tea kettle that I use for aromatic scents.


I boiled a kettle of water and, again, another wonderful aroma of Chamomile, Cinnamon Spice, and Chai tea (which is a wonderful scent). All of these scented teas can be purchased at any dollar store for far less than we would spend on any aromatic product. This gives your house humidity, just be aware to change the water after a few days use to prevent mold. Because then you are contaminating your clean fresh air with mold and possible allergens.
