Fair Friday- Milk Bath Salts



Lavender Milk Bath and Rose Milk Bath Salts
I am not doing as much crafting now that it is summer.  Gardening and summer chores around the house keep me busy. It is also triathlon season, my summer weeks are filled with work outs and races.

I did manage to make these two mixtures tonight. I love to take a nice long soak after a hard day of working out.   The ingredients are all easy to get on Amazon or eBay.

Milk in a bath helps to soften the skin and remove a layer of dead skin cells. The higher the fat content of the powdered  milk, the more the skin is nourished.

Rose Milk Bath Salts

1 1/2 cups powdered milk
1 cup fine Epsom salts
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup dried rose pedals
20 drops rose essential oils
10 drops vanilla essential oils
5 drops Rosemary essential oils

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add the essential oils a few drops at a time. Mix well until the oils are spread throughout the mixture. Set aside to cure for 24 hours.  Put into a decorative jar with a sealed top.  To use pour 1 cup of the milk bath under running water. Disperse with your hands. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes.  Dry off after bath and apply body oil or lotion.
