Herbal Milk Bath Recipe


Mild and gentle but make sure child has no allergies to milk or milk products


1 lb Cornstarch
3 cups Goats Milk Powder
1/4 cup Lavender Powder
1/4 cup Calendula Petal Powder
1/2 cup Chamomile Powder
7 to 10 drops Lavender Essential oil
2 drops Chamomile Essential Oil


Combine lavender powder with lavender oil and add chamomile oil to chamomile powder. Then combine all ingredients and mix well. Use 1 few Tablespoons for a baby size tub and increase for larger tubs and older children. Place mixture in a muslin drawstring bag or tie up in cheesecloth and add to bath water for gentle cleansing, softening and healing of the skin and as an aid to treat restlessness and insomnia.
I package these in cello bags tied with a card with instructions for use and a muslin bag attached.
