Milk baths are commonly used by pregnant women and newborn baths because they are so mild. There are SO many recipes and I feel like I have tried so many but I eventually used them as inspiration and developed what I think works best. I LOVE this milk bath because it makes the water so soft and (I may be crazy but..) I feel like my skin is glowing. After I get out of a milk bath I feel like the moisture is literally locked into my skin. I also am obsessed with taking baths so I go crazy with the candles and flowers (sorry not sorry).

Here is my recipe:

  • 4 cups of whole milk
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup of powdered milk
  • 1 cup of epsom salt (I use the lavender scented one)
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 5-6 drops of essential oil (I used this one) or vanilla extract

*whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl before you add to the bath because the powered milk with clump up.*

With Love, Elizabeth Ashley

P.S. Sorry theres not many pictures I was sorta freaking out holding my camera in the bathtub!
