Bathe Like A Queen

MIlk

I have been meaning to do a post on milk baths but I just never got around to it. Milk baths are often associated with romance and sensuality but I learned that a milk bath can really help with getting rid of dead skin cells. It has been said that Queen Cleopatra had one of the most successful beauty regimens known. She was said to have had a beautiful even complexion due to her milk baths. Now I wasn’t really looking for Cleopatra’s milk bath originally but I do remember hearing about this and her formula seems to be the most popular. Milk has Lactic Acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid. It is gentle and can be found in a lot of beauty products and is said to be an effective anti-aging skin treatment. So it sounds good to me! I doubt if anyone really has the original recipe because I found many recipes claiming to be the Cleopatra milk bath but you can change this recipe  based on your needs and the supplies you have.

4 cups Powdered Milk
2 cups Sea Salt
1 cups Baking Soda
1 cup Epsom Salt
1/2 cup Citric Acid
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Tangerine or Sweet Orange Essential Oil

TO MAKE: Mix all the dry ingredients in a large, non-porous bowl and work out any clumps. Separate 1-2 cups of the dry mixture into a smaller glass measuring cup or bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Combine the wet mixture back into the dry mix and blend together until evenly dispersed. Package as desired.
TO USE: Add a few tablespoons to warm bath water and enjoy.
