This scented bath milk would make a great gift.


  • 500 grams full cream milk powder (about 5 cups)
  • A handful of roughly crushed dried rose petals

  • 7 drops rose essential oil


Mix milk powder and rose petals together and place them in a pretty wide-necked glass bottle or jar. Add the essential oil and shake well. Insert a scoop for measuring and put lid on bottle or jar. As an added extra, you can sew a beautiful fabric flower onto a hair elastic and place this around the neck of the bottle or jar for tying up long hair before stepping into the bath. Use approximately 50 grams of bath milk per bath (a palmful, or about 1/2 cup)

Milk is a wonderful skin softener and the essential oil is very relaxing.

  • 2 cups dry milk powder
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 5 drops of fragrance oil of your choice or NONE
  • Clean Milk Bottle


Mix all the ingredients well then pour it into the CLEAN milk bottle. You may want to paint over any text on the bottle with white paint and just simply write Milk on it. The containers to use are the Old Glass Pint Milk Bottles. Then attach a new paper label to the bottle describing how to use it. The instructions should read:

Add 1/2 cup of mixture to hot bath water.

* Never recycle containers of any type that have contained chemicals as residue may be left behind even after cleaning.

* Always sterilize containers and bottles that will contain beauty or bath products.
