ROSE PETAL MILK BATH

By Liz Earle

If it’s good enough for Cleopatra it’s good enough for your Mum! Apparently, according to Liz, bathing in milk has a very softening and soothing effect and combined with some essential oils it can also be relaxing and refreshing as well as downright lovely! You can make this gift look as pretty as you dream with ribbons and tags etc. A lovely personalised product!

Ingredients

  • 300G MILK POWDER
  • 10 TBSP DRIED ROSE PETALS (available online or in some supermarkets/flower shops)
  • 10 DROPS ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL
  • 10 DROPS GERANIUM ESSENTIAL OIL

Method

  1. Place the rose petals into a large bowl or measuring jug and sprinkle with the essential oils. Mix with a spoon so they are well covered.
  2. Add in the milk powder and stir well until the rose petals are evenly distributed – use your hands if easier.
  3. Carefully pour into a clean jar, seal and decorate.
  4. To enjoy your milk bath, simply sprinkle a teacupful once the bath water has run and stir in – the smell is amazing! Soak for 5-10 minutes to enjoy the skin-softening benefits.

Here are a couple more fab variations on the above recipe adding in oatmeal, coconut and lavender. They all look gorgeous and would make such a sweet gift for any Mum. Click on your favourite and head over for the recipe! be sure to leave some love on their page too!
