Milk baths are one of my favorite water-witch rituals for self-care. This milk bath uses jasmine and lavender essential oils for peace and calm. I also like to add fresh, organic jasmine and lavender flowers to the bath when available. The magical properties and beauty of the flowers make the bath even more enchanting.
This milk bath can be customized to use any combination of essential oils and flowers that you like. Just make sure the flowers are organic and safe for your skin. You can also choose flowers in a certain color scheme to add color magic to your milk bath.
1/4 cup baking soda
10 drops jasmine essential oil and 5 drops of lavender essential oil (or any other essential oils you prefer)
1.5 cups powdered whole milk
1/4 cup cornstarch
fresh, organic jasmine and lavender flowers (optional) *note: dry flowers can also be used if fresh flowers are unavailable
1. Whisk together the baking soda and essential oils.
2. Add the powdered milk and cornstarch and mix well.
3. Add to the bath and stir to dissolve in a clockwise motion. Add in fresh jasmine and lavender flowers.
4. As you bathe, envision yourself washing away the stress and worries of the day. Recite the incantation.
"Let lavender and jasmine bring peace and love,
With water wash away the stress of the day"
