Cleopatras Milk Bath Recipe

By Janet Rundle | Submitted On July 19, 2007

The recipe makes over 3 cups of wonderful Cleopatras Milk Bath.

The all natural ingredients are combined to soothe and nourish your skin.
There was a very good reason why Cleopatra took Milk Baths.
All the ingredients that have been used are great for the skin.

You will need powdered milk, bi-carb soda, epsom salts, honey and pure essential oils of Geranium, Mandarin and Ylang Ylang - which will make it a sensual and relaxing bath. These essential oils are some of my favourites.

Cleopatras Milk Bath RECIPE

Ingredients:

2 cup Powdered Milk

½ cup Bi-carb soda

½ cup Epsom salts

½ cup Honey

handful of Rose Petals(optional)

1 ml (20 drops) Geranium essential oil

.5 ml (10 drops) Mandarin essential oil

.5 ml (10 drops) Ylang Ylang essential oil

TO MAKE:

1. Mix together powdered milk, bi-carb soda, epsom salts.

2. Put essential oils in a bottle and shake to blend.

3. Heat honey just a little bit (you do not want this very hot, otherwise it will damage the pure essential oils)and add essential oils and mix thoroughly.

4. Then combine dry ingredients with honey mixture.

5. Once the mixture is well combined, then add a handful of Rose Petals (optional).

TO USE:

You can choose how much to use per bath, you will probably need a filter in the drain to catch the rose petals.

While you are running your bath and when it is almost filled to where you want it add a couple of large tablespoons under the running water. Also make sure that you have your bathroom door closed so that the beautiful aroma from the pure essential oils does not escape, you certainly want to enjoy the aroma while you are bathing, it will certainly enhance the ambience.

You also have an excellent gift for your friends and family, put in a cute bottle or jar and add some ribbons or decorations.
