    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!

    What is milk bath?

    Milk bath is an additive to water that can be fresh or powdered.

    What are the benefits of milk bath?

    The lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid dissolves proteins that hold dead skin cells together, allowing them to be released. It leaves your skin looking and feeling more youthful and fresh.

    What ingredients are in milk bath?

    This milk bath recipe gets back to the basics requiring basic ingredients my Grandma always had on the farm. In fact, it’s said that Catherine Parr and Elizabeth I of England used milk baths in effort to look young!

    It consists of {dry} milk, corn starch, baking soda and essential oil. My Grandma would use those ingredients in addition to her aloe plant to cure just about any problem.
