DIY Milk Bath Tutorial For Mom, Or Youself!

Whether you are looking for a last minute gift for mom, or just need to relax, this milk bath recipe is easy and soothing to a tired body. You can store in any airtight container, but I really like the look of mason jars. you can even personalize it with ribbon and a label printed on sticker paper, or for the creative types, a scrapbook paper type of tag. Mom will appreciate the thought that you put into this gift!

Recipe for a Soothing Milk Bath 

1 c. goats milk powder (I purchase mine at the local health food store) 
1/2 c.  colloidal oatmeal (Aveeno is usually available at drug stores or discount stores) 
1/4 c. baking soda 
1 tsp. essential oil (if wanted)
Some essential oils that are known for their relaxation qualities are bergamot, geranium, sandlewood, jasmine, lavender, ylang ylang and patchouli. 

Mix all ingredients until thouroughly combined and store in an airtight container. Contents can be stored for up to six months. Enjoy!
