Quick Tip: Softening Milk Bath

Cleopatra bathed in asses' milk, but you don't need to go that far to have a beautifying bath. Take a tin of powdered milk (instant is best) and drop in about 12-15 drops of essential oils (I love lavender and rose). Close the tin, and shake well to mix. Add one cup of the mix to a warm bath, and relax knowing that the lactic acid in the milk will be helping to exfoliate and soften your skin. Rose petals optional, but wonderful!

I had heard the Cleopatra thing, so whenever we had milk that was a day or so past the date (still tasted fine, but was turning) I would throw it in my bath. This powdered milk is a great idea!
