Lavender Milk Bath Recipe

Do you like to take baths? And is lavender your favorite scent?  Then why not combine the two to create this relaxing milk bath.  To make a soothing and relaxing Lavender Milk Bath, fill a tub with hot water, then add the following:

1/2 cup dead sea salts
1/2 cup epsom salts
8 drops organic lavender essential oil
4 drops neroli essential oil
1 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup lavender buds
1/4 cup baking soda
5 drops jojoba oil *

Stir around and soak. Enjoy with candlelight and some relaxing music.

*for oilier skin types you may want to omit the jojoba oil

**epsom salts contain magnesium to soothe and relax muscles

**try filling the tub with hotter water than you would normally use and letting it sit for 15 minutes to cool and allow some of the chlorine to evaporate before your soak

***after your bath you may want to leave the water in the tub for an hour or so to continue to enjoy the relaxing lavender scent in your home
