How to Make Your Own Milk Bath
OLD-FASHIONED MILK BATH
1 cup of Epsom salts
A few drops of Food coloring
A few drops of any Essential oil
A few tablespoons of powdered milk
Again, mix the same as for Bath Salts, just add the powdered milk last, making sure you don’t add too much powdered milk or the mixture will end up smelling like baby formula. Peach or strawberry oils work well for milk baths, but try other oils to see what pleases you the most.
FOR PACKAGING: Select the same kind of container or jar as for the bath grains. Add a few tablespoons to the tub for a glorious, skin- softening soak.
When you’ve finished experimenting with all these products, not only will you find you’ve created some lovely gifts for the holidays, you’ll also notice your whole house smells wonderful! And, if you’re lucky enough to have a bathroom with an old clawfoot tub like grandma used to have, you can even travel back in time with an old-fashioned soak yourself.
