DIY Teabags — The Perfect Last Minute Gift!
The holidays came up fast this year, so we developed these DIY tea bags as a fun and unique gift that also shares the healing benefits of all these amazing herbs we've been learning about.
Back in November, we created a Healing Herbs article and e-course that focuses on introducing 8 herbs. These herbs were chosen because they are incredibly versatile, are easily accessible (and can be grown yourself if you really want!), and contain some or all of our four primary terpenes. All of them can be consumed fresh or dried, can be infused or extracted, can be smoked or vaporized, and are available as essential oils.

About Herbal Blends
Check out our post on how to make your own herbal blend. The best part of these little bags is that they can be used for tea, thrown into a bath, or even opened up and smoked or vaporized.
Creating the Bag
There are tons of coffee filters out there, but these are the ones we already had in our home. If you have a different style, review these steps to get a baseline then get creative with your own filter! The only real concern here is ensuring that your herbs won't escape the filter.
