643The other weekend I went to my dear friend Dina’s Baby Blessing, which is a tradition of holding the woman sacred and blessing the baby to be.

I wanted to bring something special to pamper the mama, so I made her a jar of my Milk Bath recipe.

Milk bath rituals have been used for thousands of years to soften and nourish the skin. The lactose in milk helps to gently exfoliate without over-drying. This recipe is great for all skin types including sensitive skin. It makes a great gift…. or you can just treat yourself… light some candles and allow yourself to be pampered in this luxurious bath!

Also great made into a paste and used as a facial scrub, or mixed with a little water and applied as a facial mask for 10-15 minutes.

  • 1 Cup Quick Oats or Instant Oatmeal
  • 1/4 Cup Buttermilk Powder (or Powdered Cow’s Milk or Goat’s Milk)
  • 1-3 tsp Dried lavender, rose, camomile, and/or calendula flowers
  • 2-4 drops rose essential oil
  • 2-4 drops orange essential oil
  • 2-4 drops geranium essential oil

Add 1/2 cup to your bath water & enjoy!

This recipe makes one 4oz Mason Jar, which will contain 2 bath servings.

TIP: If you don’t like having all the oatmeal and flower petals lose in your bath you can buy small muslin bags at most grocery or health food stores.
