I was inspired to make this bath milk by a natural beauty book I’m currently reading, I’ve however modified the recipe to suit myself, except the cocoa butter and roses. I love roses and cocoa butter, infact almost all my diy bath stuff have one or the other including this skin softening bath milk. However aside the roses and cocoa butter, it has coconut milk which contains a natural protein that is good for the skin and goats’ milk which has alpha hydroxy acid that helps in removing dead skin cells and vitamin A which helps in skin repair and rejuvenation.
Anytime I make this bath milk, I let it sit for a few days before using, this allows the vanilla scent become more intense (it’s like infusing herbs in oil, if you get the picture).
I love to fill up bathtub with warm water, add as much as I want ( Be careful with the roses, you don’t want to mess up your drainage), soak in and relax for 20 to 30 minutes, then give myself a gentle scrub with a soft sponge or exfoliating gloves. Skin feels so smooth and soft. It’s so simple and easy to make and you’ll probably find all the items you need in your kitchen cupboard…..okay at least a few of them.
1 Vanilla Pod
50g Goats’ milk Powder
50g Sodium Bicarbonate
50g Coconut Milk Powder
10g Cocoa Butter
Dried Rose Petals
Measure out all the ingredients, add the powders together in the bowl and mix. Open up your vanilla pod with a knife and cut it into pieces, this will allow the vanilla scent out in the milk.
Use the grater to grate the cocoa butter in the milk and add the dried rose petals. Mix all together and scoop in your jar. The scent gets better with time because of the vanilla pods.
Use anytime you feel like the extra pamper is needed. Thank you for reading and let me know your thoughts on this recipe. Please don’t forget to like, share and subscribe.
