Alyssa’s DIY Lavender Milk Bath

Lavender Milk Bath

A warm bath is one of my favorite pampering rituals, lovely scented candles casting a soft glow and maybe a little music. The perfect bathing experience wouldn’t be complete without something special added into the bath water to benefit body and soul. That is why Lavender Milk Bath is my preferred handmade bath indulgence. Here is what you’ll need:

· 1 1/2 cup of Epsom salt
· 1/2 baking soda
· 1/2 cup of whole fat powdered goats milk
· 15-25 drops of lavender essential oil
· 1/4 cup sweet almond oil

Mix all ingredients together. If you would like, into the mix you can also add a tablespoon of lavender buds. While lavender flowers are pretty in the water they can be a lot to clean up. This recipe makes a decent amount of product, lasting for many baths. Add in about 2-3 tablespoons per bath.

Smells fantastic and will leave skin soft and moisturized!
