Homemade Lavender Milk Bath

Original post from

I love all things lavender. Essential oils, cakes, cookies…the list goes on and on. I diffuse it at night before bed. I spray it on my pillows for a calming sleep and I also make an amazing milk bath with it. I have always had very sensitive skin and remember talking milk and oatmeal baths in the winter because my skin would burn in pain. It was torture. I strayed away from the baths as I got older but I remember feeling so much better after having one. As an adult, I’m still struggling with issues with my skin so this milk bath is back in action around here. It’s only three ingredients and aside from being great at home, they make excellent gifts.

Lavender Milk Bath Ingredients

  1. Powdered Milk – Cleanses and most importantly, naturally moisturizes skin.
  2. Baking Soda – Removes dead skins cells while balancing the PH, helping you maintain clear skin.
  3. Lavender Essential Oil – A calming oil said to release tension, disinfect, increase circulation and relieve pain.

Simply combine all the ingredients together and stir to remove any lumps from the oil. Store it in an airtight container for up to a month. When you decide it use it, you only need half a cup or so to make your bath.
