Milk Bath Recipes

With the holidays upon us, I thought I would share some Primitive Recipes in December for country and Primitive Bath and Body products you might like to make yourself and give as gifts. It's still November as I type this, but I'll try to add a couple more recipes next month.

Milk Bath in a Milk Bottle

I'm starting with a Milk Bath recipe. I made a few different types of  Milk Baths when I had my retail store and online store too. You can easily Google "milk bath recipe" and get lots of ideas. But the three I'm listing below will give you a place to start. And my photos show you  a couple of ways that I packaged my Milk Bath powder.

Milk Bath Plastic

Milk Bath with Oatmeal
  • 1 Cup Corn Starch
  • 2 Cups nonfat Dry Milk powder
  • 1/2 Cup Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup finely ground Oatmeal
Process the Oatmeal in a blender or food processor. And Milk powder and mix. Pour into a bowl and add the remaining ingredients, and mix well. This makes about 4 cups of Milk Bath.

Buttermilk Milk Bath
  • 1/2 Cup nonfat Dry Milk powder
  • 1/2 Cup Dry Buttermilk
  • 1 Cup fine Sea Salt
  • 2 TBSP Cornstarch
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until they are well blended. This makes about 2 Cups of Milk Bath. Note of caution: dry buttermilk can be stinky! This is not meant to a fragrant bath--it's designed for skin-softening only. You could always increase the dry milk and decrease the buttermilk if you find the buttermilk's odor too overpowering.

3 Ingredient Milk Bath
  • 2 Cups nonfat Dry Milk powder
  • 1 Cup Sea Salt (or Epsom Salt)
  • 1/4 TSP of Skin-Safe Fragrance
Mix the milk powder and the salt, then add the fragrance and mix until well combined.

Directions for use of Milk Baths: Use 3 TBSP or more to bath water to smooth and soften your skin.
