Milk Bath Recipe with Essential Oils

Ever hear of a milk bath recipe? A milk bath uses milk or milk powder to nourish your skin and gives you a luxurious bath experience. 

Today I’m sharing a milk bath recipe that is the perfect milk bath recipe for relaxation. It uses our Tranquility Essential Oil Blend and lavender buds to create a calming aromatic atmosphere. The Epsom salt will help your body detox while the milk nourishes your skin. 

This bath will make your skin thank you. It will also give you peace of mind knowing this luxurious bath experience is toxin-free. It’s the perfect way to calm down after a hard day while nourishing your skin.

Let’s dive into the benefits of this milk bath recipe.

Milk Powder

The milk powder in this recipe is going to cleanse, nourish, soften, and moisturize your skin. Full-fat milk powder is best for this recipe because along with nourishing your skin, it will also carry the essential oils safely onto your skin. 

Epsom Salts

Epsom salts are also in this recipe. Epsom salts are inexpensive and found in most supermarkets.  There are many benefits of Epsom salts in a bath including helping your body eliminate waste, soothe muscular aches and pains, and stimulate blood circulation to support your body’s immune response.

Lavender Buds

Lavender buds, or lavender flowers are used in this recipe for their beauty and ability to create a calming atmosphere. Their lavender aroma is a great way to create a relaxing bath. Tip: If you are worried about the buds clogging your bathtub drain, you can grind them in a coffee grinder before mixing them into this recipe.

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend

Tranquility Essential Oil Blend is made up of Lemon, Patchouli, Sweet Orange, Amyris, and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils. It’s the perfect blend of oils for rest and relaxation after a long day. This blend smells great with the lavender buds used in this milk bath recipe to create an atmosphere of calm.

This bath recipe is unlikely to cause any skin irritation. If you have sensitive skin, start by putting your feet in the bath to check for any adverse reactions before fully entering the bath. 

This recipe is safe for kids ages 10+. To make this recipe kid-safe, use 5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil or our Sweet Dreams Blend. 

To make this recipe pet-friendly, don’t add any essential oils. Instead at ¼ Tsp of Lavender Hydrosol per pound of weight to their bath (up to 3 Tbsp). 

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
