I am pretty new to the bath and body making thing but I was wondering. Is there any money to be made making and packaging bath teas? All the ingrediants are soooo cheap but I'm just not sure if htere is a market for them?
the long answer will depend on too many variables for us to answer - where are you selling them - different areas are different? what is your customer base? in what context - with other B&B stuff? with candle stuff? on their own? what will you charge? how will they be packaged? how will you sell them - web site, store, wholesale? how will you market them?
I personally wouldn't buy bath teas, and all my "guinea pigs" didn't seem interested when I suggested it. Bath salts, maybe. It's not a common thing, as far as, I don't ever see it when I shop farmer's market, so it could be unpopular (or maybe those folks just hadn't though of it yet).
My mom had purchased "Bath Tea" that she scooped and added to the bath, but complained that she had to shower off afterwards because all the herby things were stuck all over her.
I've seen little tea bags that are supposed to float in your bath water, but personally, they just don't seem that appealing to me. They might smell nice (up to your nose), but what they do for a bath, I'm not sure.
I like bath salts. You could color them, and see the color in your water. And, they make your skin feel good.
