Is it me or does it see that lilac and peony season come and go all too quickly? Just last week my sister was searching high and low for her favorite lilac cleaning spray and hand wash and once she found it, she stocked up for the year. I can hardly blame her because lilacs are so fragrant and beautiful, but bloom for such a short time.
Our lilacs are in bloom right now, and I’m conflicted whether I should leave them to make the exterior of our home beautiful or bring them in to add their sweet fragrance to the living room and bedrooms. If you, too are an unreasonable lover of lilacs, you can actually cover yourself in it – with homemade lilac bath milk.
You’re just 4 ingredients and 4 minutes away from creating a milk bath that will leave your skin feeling soft and her feeling refreshed. Of course this makes a beautiful bridesmaid’s or Mother’s Day gift as well, but today, I’m feeling like it’s me who needs the gift of relaxation.
