I have been wanting to experiment with this project and I am so glad I was able to this weekend! I love to take baths and I love my essential oils. I have also been inspired to shoot some bubblebath photography, so this project was just screaming my name.
Benefits of a Milk Bath;
- helps soften + smooth rough, flaky skin. Milk contains lactic acid which help loosen the bond of dead skin cells.
- exfoliates skin without scrubbing, so don't worry about irritating your skin.
- boost moisture; milk has fat and proteins that can help boost your skin's moisture content and keep skin hydrated even if you're done soaking.
Combine the below ingredients into a large mason jar. After adding the milk, cornstarch, and baking soda, shake the jar to combine ingredients. Next, add 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oils. Let the mixture sit for about 24 hours before use to allow the oils to completely combine.
For the kids I used 1 cup of the Milk Bath along with their favorite bubble bath.
For Mama, I added rose pedals + eucalyptus leaves in my bath. The leaves enhance the aroma of the essential oils as well as soothes irritated skin. Rosewater can also tighten pores for a smooth appearance.
To use; Add 1-2 cups of your new Milk Bath into running hot water. Sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy!! You deserve it!
