Like most girls I love my baths. I take baths quite seriously too… like you see in the movies. I do the whole turn off all the lights. light the candles, use essential oils, bath salts, floating flowers, the whole nine yards. I am sure any guy would think that hysterical. But if you only tried it you would love it too.
You can buy pre-mixed milk bath powders or create your own from ingredients in your cupboard. Many pre-mixed milk baths can cost you about $20 to $30, but this should get you about four to eight baths. Some milk bath powders you can buy have additives such as extra vitamins or moisturizing agents, which may appeal to people with dry or sensitive skin. Many powders are scented, though, so if you don’t want to smell like fruits or flowers, or if you have easily irritated skin, you could consider going the homemade route.

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup corn starch
1/4 cup baking soda
any essential oil mixture
*Doubled the recipe
1. Combine ingredients in a dark bowl (it says to do a dark jar but since I doubled it, it wouldn’t fit, a dark bowl worked fine) and wisk ingredients together until there are no bumps. (if you used a jar it says to put cap on and shake until bumps are gone)
2. Add essential oils. I used about 15 drops total (I did 10 drops lavender 5 drops lemon).. you can do more or less, it wont make a difference! If you used a bowl you will now cover it in foil. If you used a jar, keep the lid on.
3. Put in a cool dark place for roughly 24 hours.
4. Fill up bath about 3/4 of the way you usually do and add mixture!
Seriously, this was amazing. Usually when I get out of the bath my skin feels really tight and dry, but it feels silky and smooth after this!
