Mint Milk Bath Recipe


Now that Halloween has passed, I’m starting to think about gift giving again. I truly enjoy making gifts that our friends, family and girls’ teachers will love. After sharing some of my favorite sugar scrub and bath salt recipes with you, I decided it was time to share my favorite milk bath recipe. Of course, it involves spearmint. Something about its scent just puts me at ease. This of course is a great gift for yourself too! After all, it just takes 5 minutes and a few ingredients.

You know what else I love about this recipe? It requires just the standard ingredients my Grandma always had on the farm. Dry milk, corn starch, baking soda, a weck jar & essential oil. I love getting back to the basics. My Grandma would use those ingredients in addition to her aloe plant to cure just about any problem.

I’m also including a free printable label today. Kraft paper is not only on my must have craft supply list, but it’s also my favorite for holiday gift wrapping. It just feels classic and timeless.
