Rose Petal Milk Bath
This rose petal milk bath is perfect for all skin types, especially great for dry, sensitive and mature skin. Both rose petals and milk have been used in skincare since ancient times. Many believe that Cleopatra, known for her radiant and glowing skin, bathed in rose petal milk bath daily. Sign me up!
Rose petals are loaded with skin loving vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Rose petals are also naturally fragrant, with a calming and soothing aroma. Likewise, milk has a ton of skin nourishing properties. Milk softens and cleanses skin. Milk also gently exfoliates dead skin, while encourages skin regeneration. A rose petal milk bath is a luxurious bath that combines the skincare benefits of rose petals and milk.
Oatmeal’s moisturizing, cleansing, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties make it a no brainer to add to this bath soak. It's also gentle on our skin and it’s great for people with sensitive skin.
Himalayan pink salt is loaded with skin-friendly nutrients that can detox skin and stimulate circulation. It is said that adding Himalayan pink salt to a bath can increase the bath’s healing and cleansing properties.
So, what are you waiting for??
The recipe of course..
1/2 cup of the following:
Pink Himalayan Salt
Dried milk/coconut milk powder
Dried Rose Petals
20-30 drops Essential Oils of choice
Makes enough for about 2-3 baths
When I get roses and I've enjoyed them until they start too dry out i save the petals and use them for recipes like this. Once they are completely dry, use a mortar and pestle to crush them up before adding to your mixture.
For the oatmeal, you could use a mortar and pestle as well but if you have a VItamix with the dry/grain jar I would opt for that.
