Take a bath and unwind with Mae Laine Bath Teabags
A stress-free afternoon. A warm bath. Hand blended Himalayan salts, lavender, organic teas, floral and natural oils. Enter Kylie Wiblen, the founder and creator of Mae Laine Bath Teabags. Locally sourced, Wiblen’s interest and inspirations for founding her brand came from an extensive knowledge and love of tea! Infused with a signature scent, flower buds and more, Mae Laine teabags are filled with a mix of sea salts and are natural, organic and blended with essential oils for soothing relaxation and beautiful rejuvenation — for both men and women! We spoke with Ms Wiblen below on after-summer leisure, creative design and going after your passion-fueled ideas.
Bloke Soak: This blend is masculine and filled with natural sea salts, clays, aroma of black patchouli, orange peel, mandarin, coriander leaves, star anise and more wonders. Salt is the new black.
HOW DID THE IDEA FOR MAE LAINE BATH TEABAGS COME ABOUT? WITH THAT, WHAT’S THE MEANING BEHIND THE NAME?
My passion for creating and design exploded the night I dropped my Madura tea bag into my bath water. Talk about a light bulb moment! I started hand blending small batch bath salts from when my first supplies arrived and haven’t stopped since, loving my direction more each day from hobby to business. Life as a small business owner can get seriously hectic, but my favourite way to unwind continues to be laying back and having a quiet soak in my bath.
My brand is named after my two daughters, and every time I look at my products, I am reminded of the meaning and purpose behind my journey. Never stop believing that anything is possible if you have the heart & soul to follow your dreams.

AS WE START MOVING AWAY FROM SUMMER, WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE MOMENT?
My favourite blend still happens to be my essential oil blend called F L O A T. This blend provides true therapy for the muscles & skin… They combine perfectly with the warm bath water to soothe away any aches & hydrate the skin. The senses are simultaneously stimulated natural with the aromatic essences of this blend. The essential oils of mandarin, lime, lemon and sweet almond oil & botanicals and more.
